Journey to Oz (February 9 - May 12)

One of the world's beloved movies turns 80 this year and Crown Center is celebrating by brining the magic of the big screen to you.

Mr. Popper's Penguins at The Coterie (February 26 - March 31)

In this charming musical adaptation of the beloved book, Mr. and Mrs. Popper's lives take an adventurous turn when a mysterious box arrives on their doorstep with a penguin inside. Not long after, the local aquarium sends over a female penguin and soon, the Poppers are hearing the patter of 20 little feet. What starts for Mr. Popper as a giant bill for canned shrimp leads to an imaginative journey across America - one that ends in the Antarctic to place the penguin colony in a "life they were meant to lead." Visit or call 816-474-6552 for showtimes and tickets.

Presented by Girl Scouts of NE Kansas and NW Missouri, Girl Scouts and female professional volunteers from the design industry will come together from 8am to 3pm to build eight one-of-a-kind displays made entirely of empty Girl Scout Cookie boxes.
