Each spring, The Coterie premieres the Young Playwrights' Festival, an evening showcasing new works by some of Kansas City’s most talented teen playwrights. It is a full production of rich and varied theatrical writings created and developed by members of our Young Playwrights' Roundtable. The Coterie's Roundtable brings together students from around the Kansas City metro area who have emerged from our Reaching the Write Minds program as promising young writers. The Roundtable offers these young people a year-long writing and development process through which their ideas are curated into a collection of new works. Selected pieces will be performed in script-in-hand stagings utilizing students from The Coterie's Master class program and professional directors.

Young Playwrights’ Festival is a ticketless event. It is also an all-masked audience event. Admission to attend in person is $5.00 and advance reservations are required due to reduced seating capacity. The theater will open for seating 30 minutes prior to the performance. On the day of the performance, the Box Office will open at 6:00 p.m.
