Need Summer Plans? Tour Missouri, Oklahoma, and Kansas Theaters with THSA!
KANSAS CITY, MO — From June 26 through July 1, 2004, the Theatre Historical Society of America, as part of its 2004 “Heart of America” Conclave, will tour a number of theaters in the Kansas City area.
The tour will include theaters in Lamar, Joplin, Richmond, St. Joseph, and Springfield, Missouri; a theater in Miami, Oklahoma; and these Kansas theaters: the Leavenworth, Kansas City, Emporia, El Dorado, Augusta, Wichita, Hutchinson, McPherson, Salina, Concordia, and Topeka.
Complete details about this year’s Conclave can be found on the THSA Conclave website. A glossy brochure is also available — if you’d like a copy, email , the group’s director, or send a request to the group’s headquarters via standard mail.
The group also has a special page with photos and information concerning Kansas City’s Uptown and Midland theaters.
Membership in the Society is not required to attend the Conclave and tour the theaters, but fees do apply as detailed on their site.
Bring your camera and lots of film, for it is usually difficult or impossible to otherwise enter these theaters for photos, and some of them will surely not be with us in the years to come.
