Mission & Vision

Vision Statement

Starlight Theatre is the premier entertainment treasure of the heartland, where performing arts share center stage with education.

Mission Statement

Starlight Theatre Association is dedicated to producing, presenting and promoting excellence in musical theatre and the performing arts for diverse audiences of all ages, with continued programming for families and children. Starlight strives to enrich our region for all residents and visitors by building appreciation for the performing arts, making live theatre and music affordable and accessible, providing superior theatre arts education and community outreach programs, and delivering exceptional customer service. Starlight will remain a beloved Kansas City cultural tradition by devoting resources to preserving and enhancing our home venue in Swope Park and creating new memories for generations to come.

Get Involved


Starlight Theatre has numerous ways in which you can support one of Kansas City's oldest traditions. Without the help of our volunteer staff during Broadway show and concert nights it would be impossible for Starlight to provide our patrons with the customer support they have come to expect.

Annual Fund 

We believe performing arts opportunities should be available to all young people in Kansas City. By partnering with us through our Annual Fund you will help make this possible. Whether your gift to the Starlight Theatre Annual Fund is large or small, you will help to continue programs like the Blue Star Awards, Starlight on Site, Community Ticket Program and many others.
