More than 30 Years of Laughs!

Over the last 33 years, Martin City Melodrama & Vaudeville Co. has brought the Kansas City area the unique theatrical style of melodrama & vaudeville while giving over 500 local actors their professional start. From our mainstage productions to Martin City Jr.'s edu-tainment shows, we have continued to produce quality original adaptations of literary classics, recreate musical revues, and perform fractured fairy tale operettas.

A core part of Martin City Melodrama is the Top Bananas! program established to engage and empower the community of individuals with special needs in the live theatre. We're also expanding our offerings to include classes and workshops specially tailored to differently-abled actors.


We are thrilled to be in our forever home! MCMVCo. and to be bringing laughter and quality performances to audiences of all ages, for years to come.
