Extra! Extra! Hit show “Newsies” in Kansas City!

Extra! Extra! Hit show “Newsies” in Kansas City! For the very first time, The Coterie and the White Theatre at The J join forces to create Kansas City’s first locally-produced production of the Broadway smash hit “Newsies”. Keith Wiedenkeller, the Jewish Community Center’s Director Arts + Culture, and Jeff Church, Coterie’s Producing Artistic Director, say this show makes headlines. Inspired by the real-life ‘Newsboy Strike of 1899, Disney’s Newsies, is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged ‘newsies,’ who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. High-energy with non-stop thrills, the stage version introduces eight brand-new songs by the original team of Menken and Feldman while keeping many of the beloved songs from the film, including “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” “King of New York” and “Santa Fe.” Noah Lindquist (who plays Jack) and Lucas Styles Lowery (who plays Crutchie) sing “Santa Fe” from the Prologue of “Newsies”.

SAID THE SKY HITS EMOTIVELY CHARGED MILESTONE WITH DEBUT LP “WIDE EYED” OUT …

SAID THE SKY HITS EMOTIVELY CHARGED MILESTONE WITH DEBUT LP “WIDE EYED” OUT … Wide-Eyed and Mouth-Gaped after listening to this debut album Now, this is how you release a debut LP. Said The Sky is blowing us away with his first full-length album "Wide-Eyed" out today via Seeking Blue Records. Having started the journey towards this career landmark courtesy of singles ‘Over Getting Over You’ alongside Matthew Koma and ‘Superstar’ alongside Dabin and Linn, Said The Sky (real name Trevor Christensen) leaves no stone unturned for his first album project. Accompanied by a nationwide tour covering the entire country, WIDE-EYED represents a serious step into the spotlight from the rising star.  The 15-track offering is a testament to the four-year journey that has taken Said The Sky to the level of artistry he shows us today.  He starts off with a beautiful piano intro with Just Our Lullaby that sets the listener up for what is going to be a roller coaster of vibes. Next up we have Just Us ft. Yuppycult, a bright yet sultry vocal future bass track that has just the amount of pop. Show & Tell ft. Claire Ridgely is sassy, boppy, with empowering vocals. Affection ft. Jack Newsome and Origami gives me full Odesza vibes (my greatest compliment) 5 stars! Beautiful feat Diamond Eyes is soulful with that big room drop. I could see this being played at any festival main stage.  Pray For Me ft. Origami has been out on the scene for a bit and fits into this album like a glove. It’s a heavier, darker tone than the rest which is a cool change up to mix in. Getting trap vibes.  Mixed Signals with StayLoose ft. Kyle Reynolds is summery and could fit in the mainstream scene but the funky flare brings it some edge. Hold Me Closer is a solemnly beautiful interlude that showcases his guitar and piano skills that have brought him to where he is now.  All I Got also starts slow and melodic but opens to an airy powerful drop that wakes you right back up.  Faded is giving me straight emo vibes, middle school me is getting down to this. And then with build up and drop show the listener how talented his production skills truly are. I dare you not to nod your head to. Erase Me is straight ethereal.   Change Your Mind ft. Vancouver Sleep Clinic is euphoric.  Over Getting You ft. Matthew Koma, the song that has brought him some of the most attention gives off great big room vibes.  Superstar with Dabin and Lim seems mainstream but with the interesting moving basslines that switch things up.  Finally, Never Gone is another angelic track with a powerful drop that culminates the album perfectly and shows that this man is an EDM powerhouse.  Reflecting on the journey to his debut LP, Trevor explains: ‘This LP turned out as the story of falling in and out of love. The first half of the album kind of portrays the feelings you have when you…

Barstow, KC's oldest co-ed private school, is moving into Leawood

Barstow, KC's oldest co-ed private school, is moving into Leawood

Barstow, KC's oldest co-ed private school, is moving into Leawood The Barstow School, Kansas City’s oldest co-ed private college prep school, is expanding across the state line into Kansas. The school, at 11511 State Line Road on the Missouri side, announced on Thursday that it’s purchasing the former Hy-Vee grocery store space at 12200 State Line in Leawood Plaza. The store closed four years ago, when the town’s leaders refused to give the company $1 million in tax revenue to help upgrade the inside. At the time residents were aggravated about losing a grocery at that location. Johnson County has appraised the value of the property at just under $3.2 million. “I am delighted that we are in the final stages of acquiring the site on State Line Road,” said Shane Foster, Barstow president and head of school. The Leawood City Council is expected to review the plan by the end of summer. School officials said the former store will increase the campus by more than 50 percent, giving the school an additional 62,680 square feet of space and 170 parking spots. Barstow plans to renovate the facility and grow its STEAM programs (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) and robotics and early childhood programs, possibly adding students younger than 3 to its pre-K program. Foster also envisions music and performance studios in the new space. In addition, the expanded campus will also offer a broad range of extracurricular activities. Barstow also plans to make the space available for use by students from other schools throughout the community. “The proximity to our existing campus will allow easy transportation of students to and from the new location,” Foster said. But, he said, no division of the school will move into the new site, which is expected to open by the end of the 2018-19 school year. “Our existing location in Missouri will continue to serve as our primary campus,” Foster said. All of Barstow’s approximately 720 students will continue taking their classes on the main campus. This will mark the first time in Barstow’s 134-year history that the school has had a campus in Kansas. That said, students attending the private school come from more than 60 different ZIP codes on both sides of the state line. Barstow moved into its current space from 5110 Cherry St. in 1962. Members of the community are looking forward to Barstow moving into the space, saying it may spark interest in Leawood Plaza. “The Leawood Chamber of Commerce is very pleased that the Barstow School has chosen to invest in Leawood, and we look forward to them transforming this site into part of the Barstow community,” said Kevin Jeffries, president and chief executive officer of the Leawood Chamber and a Barstow alumnus.
