STARLIGHT INDOORS EXPANDS WITH 5 SHOWS FROM OCTOBER TO MARCH
Unconventional, comedic shows will be presented in Starlight’s intimate indoor setting

WHAT:
The show lineup for Starlight Indoors, a live theatre series launched last January by Starlight Theatre, has been announced for the series’ second season. Included in the 2016-17 indoor series are five Off-Broadway-style productions, featuring unconventional and award-winning comedies.

WHEN:
October 11, 2016 to March 19, 2017 (see specific run dates for each show below)

WHERE:

Starlight Indoors is presented inside the heated, intimate performance space of Starlight’s Cohen Community Stage, on-site at Starlight Theatre, 4600 Starlight Road, Kansas City, MO 64132. Each show will seat 300 to 500 people.

SHOWS:

 

·         THE SECRET COMEDY OF WOMEN: GIRLS ONLY is an original comedic variety show that celebrates the honor, truth and humor of being female. The two-woman act, inspired by the earnest and sweetly ridiculous writings the two authors found in their own childhood diaries, blends sketch comedy, improv, audience participation, musical numbers and video. The result is high-spirited, good-natured humor and fun! Suitable for female audiences, ages 10+.

October 11-23, 2016
16 performances – in Cohen Community Stage House at Starlight Theatre
Run time: 2 hours, with intermission
Cost: $36-$56

 

·         MEN ARE FROM MARS, WOMEN ARE FROM VENUS LIVE! is an Off-Broadway hit. This one-man fusion of theatre and standup comedy, based on The New York Times best-selling book of the same name, moves swiftly through a series of vignettes – everything from dating to marriage to the bedroom. Since premiering in Paris in 2007, the show has been seen by more than 1 million people across Europe. It made its U.S. debut in 2013. Suitable for adult audiences.

 

November 3-5, 2016
3 performances – in Cohen Community Stage House at Starlight Theatre

·         SISTER’S CHRISTMAS CATECHISM finds Sister returning to Starlight after schooling audiences in Late Nite Catechism last January. This time Sister takes on the mystery that has long perplexed historians: What ever happened to the Magi’s Gold? In this holiday mystery extravaganza, Sister retells the story of the nativity as only she can. Employing her own scientific tools and assisted by the Starlight STARS of Tomorrow youth choir and a gaggle of audience members, she’ll create a living nativity audiences won’t soon forget. Suitable for all audiences.

Run time: 2 hours, with intermission

·         FIRST DATE, a modern musical featuring a Kansas City cast, follows blind-date “newbie” Aaron and serial-dater Casey. Their casual drink at a busy restaurant quickly turns into a hilarious, high-stakes dinner, and, as their first date unfolds in real time, the couple soon finds they are not alone! Restaurant staff transform into supportive best friends, manipulative exes and protective parents who sing and dance the couple through ice breakers, appetizers and conversational land mines. Suitable for dating age and older.

February 3 – March 5, 2017
32 performances – in Cohen Community Stage House at Starlight Theatre
Run time: 90 minutes, no intermission

·         DISENCHANTED is a hilarious hit musical that’s anything but Grimm when fairytale heroines come back to life to set the record straight. By tossing off their tiaras and serving up a sassy, subversive musical, these royal renegades have sold out multiple venues nationwide. The irreverent musical was conceived by Dennis Giacino, a former history teacher and musician at heart. Suitable for adult audiences.
