Starlight Theatre is a magic place where an evening of musical theatre under the stars in Kansas City's Swope Park speaks so strongly of emotion that the audience is transformed by the presence of the creative experience.

This book is filled with historical photos and provides a "behind the scenes" look at the real workings of the second largest outdoor theatre in the United States. A must for theatre goers everywhere.

Unlike many other art forms, live outdoor theatre is a participatory experience, an event that the spectator helps to create. Every audience is unique because every set of circumstances that come together for an evening's performance is different. Yet the experience of an evening in Kansas City's hillside ampitheatre links millions of Midwesterners who have gone to the theatre in Swope Park and come away refreshed, insightful, and, often, amused.

Starlight has become nationally known for its presentation of musical theatre. Light opera, operettas, and book musicals have enchanted audiences there for almost five decades.

About the Author:

Kathleen Hegarty Thorne was born in Kansas City. She started dance training at the age of two and at the age of seven landed a role in the children's chorus of Babes in Toyland - the first children's production at Starlight Theatre. Kathy went on to study theatre at Avila College where she received a bachelors degree in speech and drama. Graduate studies took her to the University of Missouri-Kansas City where she earned a master's degree in education and on the the University of Oregon in Eugene where she received a master's degree in theatre.

Thorne's unique history with Starlight Theatre and her knowledge of theatre in all its aspects put her in a unique position to tell the story of Starlight Theatre in Kansas City.
