We are passionate about building self-confidence in your kids


Established in 1998, Theatre of the Imagination has been a solid and stable source of excellent artistic and theater education for kids throughout Kansas City and Overland Park. We offer acting classes for kids througouth the year, including summer drama camps, and during vacation weeks like Spring Break and winter break.

The goal of our camps is for your child to feel great about themselves on stage.  We allow students to come in at all skill levels, work as a team with the other kids in the group, and learn their lines to pull together shows that everyone will enjoy, cast and audience alike. Our courses bring out the silly and creative sides of our students, while building self-confidence and improving self-esteem in the process.

While our main office is located at 75th and Wornall in the historic Waldo neighborhood of Kansas City, we have loved hosting our Spring Break and Summer Camps in Overland Park, just south of Town Center Plaza and just north of Prairie Fire.

Whether your child is shy and reserved or outspoken and all about the limelight, we are dedicated to helping them feel more confident about themselves and flourish on and off the stage.

In-Person Summer Camps

Your child gets to be dramatic in so many ways at our summer drama camps.  They get to act in funny plays with no leads and no auditions.  They make their own movies that they get to keep and share.  Join us for drama games, dance routines, foosball and air hockey tables, and don’t forget about our Disco Room!


Movie Making Birthday Parties

Your birthday child and their friends get to be movie stars! We come to you with costumes and lead the kids through a film-making adventure that ends with a real movie, where they are the stars!  Everyone gets to see themselves on TV that day, and they all get a copy to keep and share.
