Starlight’s Just Imagine interactive theatre program reaches some of Kansas City’s most vulnerable residents, particularly children struggling with illness in a hospital setting or being served by social service agencies. These youngsters get a chance to use their imaginations and briefly escape life’s challenges during Starlight’s hour-long Just Imagine performances.
Four professional actors lead each performance, bringing with them props and specially designed costumes to take children on a fun, fast-paced theatrical journey. In recent years, Starlight’s troupe of actors has brightened the days of hundreds of children and adults at organizations including:
KU Medical Center
Children’s Mercy Hospital
The Children’s Place
Independence Public Schools – Kids’ Safari
Preferred Family Healthcare
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City
St. Mark Family and Child Development Center
TFI Family Services
The costumes used in hospital performances of Just Imagine are made exclusively for Starlight by Kansas City Costume Co.
Just Imagine is generously supported by a donation in memory of Richard J. Van Winkle Jr.
