From the family trio of The Theatre in the Park, the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center and the Johnson County Museum comes a new fine arts addition: STAGEPLAY!


StagePlay is an immersive, performing arts field trip for children grades K-8 that adopts a holistic learning approach designed to satisfy Kansas State educational standards.  


StagePlay is singular in its formation, holistic in its practice, and unique to Johnson County. It is the ONLY performing arts, education-based field trip providing three days of classroom curriculum (adhering to and satisfying Kansas College and Career Ready State Standards), a theatrical performance, and engagement activities (including S.T.E.A.M.) facilitated through a field-trip model for area school districts. 

StagePlay's educational philosophy is holistic, meaning while its curriculum practically satisfies state standards, it also cultivates the development of the whole child through the arts: social-emotionally, experiential learning, and fostering a passionate love of learning. 

Through StagePlay, hundreds of area students from kindergarten through middle school will prepare for the experience through pre-performance classroom activities, engage in the actual performance, and then are challenged to create, write, and dialogue critically about the presented material in post-performance activities. 


StagePlay field trips can be booked starting Summer 2019 for the 2019-2020 school year season of shows (September; March)

Field trip times: 9:30am-2:00pm  (Students must bring a sack lunch; Vending machines are available for snacks, water, or other drinks.).
