  • Girl Scout discount performance - Sun Feb 5, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
  • Show runs January 31 - March 5

This National Endowment for the Arts award-winning play intertwines present day with the last segregated days of Kansas City’s Fairyland amusement park. Two stories told in tandem: In the early 1960s in Kansas City, Rose James uses smarts and determination to try to defeat the racial segregation policy that allowed blacks to visit Fairyland Park only one day each year. Years later, Rose’s granddaughter, Ella, uses her talent and grandmother’s spirit to shine a light on an injustice at her school. Rose and Ella tap into “black girl magic” and empowerment to bring about meaningful change to their lives.

Only One Day a Year runs from January 31-March 5. Ticket prices vary by date. Visit www.thecoterie.org or contact the box office at 816-474-6552. Girl Scouts and their family members receive a special discount for the February 5 show.
