Reporting Resources
It is very important that we maintain a safe environment here at First Act Theatre Arts. To help us with this, please click the link below to review resources on topics including abuse reporting and suicide prevention, and do not hesitate to reach out to a staff member with any concerns.

Keeping Our Community Safe

Together, we are responsible for maintaining a welcoming, caring, and, most importantly, safe environment for all students and families in our First Act Theatre Arts  community. All current staff members at First Act Theatre Arts are mandated reporters, required by law to report any suspicion of abuse to a child protective agency. We also encourage you to report any concerns that you may have regarding the safety or well-being of students, staff, or families to a First Act staff member, to communityfeedback@firstactkc.org, or directly to the appropriate agency in the resources below. 

First Act Theatre Arts is housed as a nonprofit in Kansas; however, many of our activities also occur in Missouri, so you will find resources for both states below.

First Act Community Feedback

We want to hear you and listen to your feedback. Please email us at communityfeedback@firstact.org if you have anything you’d like to share. Feedback will be reviewed by board members, the executive director, and the artistic director.
