This Spring, The Coterie presents Mesner Puppet Theater’s premiere production of How to Snag a Sea Monster: A Terrifically Tall Tale, an all masked, socially distanced, live show with an online streaming option available for those who are unable to attend in person. An adaptation of the endearing American folktales of Stormy Stormalong, How to Snag a Sea Monster will perform for families with ages five and older live on The Coterie’s stage in Crown Center, April 30 – May 30, with the streaming version available for families and virtual school field trips beginning May 5, 2021. In How to Snag a Sea Monster: A Terrifically Tall Tale, after a monstrous wave washes a creature ashore, the people of a small Cape Cod town hear it wailing. What they initially fear might be a sea monster, turns out to be a baby as big as a house. The village adopts the giant baby, whom they name Stormalong, or 'Stormy' for short, but growing to over 24 feet, Stormy struggles to fit in, and eventually chooses a life at sea aboard a clipper ship to find a place in the world. Meanwhile, when a bullying sea monster, the colossal kraken, does come to torment the village... only Stormy is big enough to save them all!

VIRTUAL - Edgar Meyer, Bassist in Solo Performance - Digital Experience

[more+]

Edgar Meyer will play a rare solo performance that will expand musical horizons and reimagine traditional boundaries of the double bass. Meyer’s anticipated program includes his own arrangement of Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1, original bluegrass compositions, and his newest work that explores the sonic possibilities of the bass as a solo instrument. Hailed by The New Yorker as “the most remarkable virtuoso in the relatively unchronicled history of his instrument,” Edgar Meyer’s unparalleled technique and musicianship in combination with his gift for composition have brought him to greater stardom. His uniqueness in the field was recognized by both a MacArthur Fellowship and an Avery Fisher Prize; Meyer is the only bassist ever to receive either of these esteemed accolades.
This concert will have a socially distanced audience and all in-person tickets are sold out.

[more+]

With virtual classes now available to youth nationwide and in-person classes held at Crown Center at The Coterie Theatre, Pembroke Hill on The Plaza, Miller Marley School of Dance and Voice in Overland Park, and at the Liberty Community Center in Liberty, The Coterie’s classes are led by a staff of professional, trained teaching artists and are focused on a process-based curriculum. Classes for s incoming Grades K-12 begin June 7, with additional classes starting throughout June and July. All in-person classes will be socially-distanced, masked (both instructor and students), and will adhere to safety protocols (detailed on our website). Whether virtual or in-person, all Coterie classes are designed to engage students intellectually, emotionally, and physically. Using lesson plans that focus on the growth of each student individually, process-based learning establishes a foundation of invaluable skills that all acting training builds on, including important life skills that will be useful to any growing mind, whether or not acting may be in their future. Classes are limited to ten students per class and above to ensure teaching artists can see and respond to every student, encouraging active participation. In virtual classes, parents of younger children are encouraged to participate in with their child, leading to interactive play that lets loose the child’s imagination and becomes part of the larger story being created by the class. To register or for the latest class schedules and location information, visit www.thecoterie.org. Questions may be directed to class registrar, Annette Filippi, at afilippi@coterietheatre.org or 816.474.4241. Financial assistance is available as needed. Contact Amanda Kibler at akibler@coterietheatre.org to apply.
