The Coterie Presents: A World Premiere!
Only One Day a Year
Written by Michelle Tyrene Johnson
Friday, February 24, 2023 at 7:00PM

The Coterie Theatre
2450 Grand Blvd
Suite 144
Kansas City, MO 64108
Crown Center Shopping Complex (Lower Level)

For Ages 9+

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.


Friday, February 24th at 7:00pm is a Sensory Friendly performance, with modified lights and sound to make a more relaxed environment. We ask that our audience be flexible with their expectations so that neurodiverse audience members may interact with the story in the way that suits them best: which may include removing their mask, speaking, moving, or using devices throughout the performance. If you have questions about our Sensory Friendly performances or would like a copy of the Social Narrative that can be introduced before the show to help set expectations, please contact the Box Office at boxoffice@coterietheatre.org or 816-474-6552.
