Starlight Theatre events in Kansas City, Missouri, take place under the stars in one of the last two remaining outdoor venues in the United States considered to be self-producing. The theater originated in 1925 when the Queen of Romania visited Kansas City. Local talent put on a performance for her, and a suitable venue needed to be built. The Starlight Theatre has been an entertainment hub for Broadway shows such as West Side Story, The Wizard of Oz and Mamma Mia!. The Starlight Theatre is also a favorite concert spot hosting performers such as Chicago, Dierks Bentley and ZZ Top. Since its inception, the Starlight Theatre has added an indoor theater to its venue, allowing for year-round performances for audiences to enjoy.
