Only One Day a Year (ages 9+) - The Coterie Theatre | Kids Out and About Kansas City

Only One Day a Year (ages 9+) - The Coterie Theatre

This National Endowment for the Arts award-winning play intertwines present day with the last segregated days of Fairyland amusement park. Inspired by overlooked Kansas City history! 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.
