|Celebrate the opening of the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center on June 10|
The public is invited to take part in the highly-anticipated opening of the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center (JCAHC), located in the former King Louie building at 8788 Metcalf Ave. in Overland Park, on Saturday, June 10.
The free day will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 8:45 a.m. A complimentary shuttle to JCAHC will be offered from the old K-Mart parking lot located at 93rd and Metcalf.
Activities offered during the grand opening celebration include museum tours, the KidScape experience, drop-in dance and art classes, entertainment, music, refreshments, and more!
The center will provide an expanded new home for the Johnson County Museum and its 1950s All-Electric House, as well as space for multiple Johnson County Park & Recreation District (JCPRD) programs including cultural enrichment opportunities, arts and crafts offerings, and music and dance classes. Also included in the center is a 330-seat “black box” theater which will provide The Theatre in the Park with a year-round venue to supplement its summer productions in Shawnee Mission Park. The first production in the theater is “Grease,” which offers shows from June 9 through 25. Tickets are on sale now at www.theatreinthepark.org.
JCAHC also has an event space for up to 330 people with an outdoor patio, both of which are available for rental, as are several other spaces. The center houses the Arts Council of Johnson County, Johnson County Developmental Supports Emerging Artist Program, and The Overland Park Historical Society.
