Welcome

Welcome to our website and thank you for your interest in City Theatre of Independence. We are a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization. Everything you see on stage as well as behind the scenes is produced by volunteers who are members of the local community.

Our mission is to provide an equal opportunity for individuals to actively participate and learn about live theatre production and theatre company operations; thereby providing a live entertainment experience for our theatre patrons.

We welcome new participants and members and encourage anyone interested in taking part to contact us. We hope you will consider becoming a contributor to our organization either by getting involved with your time, or by making a donation or even becoming a sponsor. There are also opportunities to volunteer at various fundraisers or performances.

We produce four plays and one musical each season. We also hold an annual Playwright Festival that features original works of ten-minute plays. At the end of each season, we celebrate with an awards banquet.
