Comments Off on Our Better Idea

We have a better idea! The site at Ironwoods Park is unsuitable for an amphitheater. We propose a new Leawood Performing Arts Center, to be sited on the 4+ acre piece of land directly adjacent to the new Justice Center at 117th and Tomahawk Creek Parkway (Mission Road). An enclosed theater would provide a permanent, year round home for the Leawood Stage Company that is not dependent on weather conditions or season. Additionally, other cultural arts programming would be able to perform there. The location is central to the long and narrow city of Leawood. In addition to being near Leawood’s other municipal facilities, the 117th Street location is an easy walk to restaurants and shops of One Nineteen, Town Center Plaza, Camelot Court, and Hawthorn Valley Plaza. The new Justice Center parking structure will provide ample patron parking.
