Staging The Future
Staging The Future is a program designed to introduce young people to the magic of live Broadway Theater by giving them an opportunity to attend select productions at a special subsidized student discount. The program is unique in that it is supported and wholly funded by the generous donations of our season subscribers and sponsors. By offering discounted tickets, Staging The Future is able to give many children and young adults their first opportunity to experience live Broadway musicals and cultivates their appreciation for the arts.

12th Street Jump
Where Count Basie tickled the ivories at the Reno Club and Big Joe Turner shouted the blues. Where cats like Lester Young, Mary Lou Williams, Buster Smith and the Bird lit up a strip of clubs, juke joints and honky-tonks with their brand new sound. 12th STREET JUMP brings back that great era of Kansas City jazz on public radio’s weekly jazz, blues and comedy jam. Hosts Eboni Fondren and Pete Weber, musical director Joe Cartwright, vocalist David Basse, bassist Tyrone Clark and drummer Doug Auwarter and some very special guests serve it up every Saturday night at midnight, live! where the joint’s always jumpin’ at the Black Dolphin Room in Midtown Kansas City. Join us live! on KCUR FM 89.3 or play your favorite show from the 12th STREET JUMP archive. If you’re not in Kansas City, ask your public radio station to carry 12th STREET JUMP — every week, from PRX – the Public Radio Exchange.
