The arm of Scott Hobart, technical director for the Coterie At Night, painted yellow corn stalks
on a corn maze constructed of masonite build outside Just Off Broadway Theatre at 3051
Central Street in Kansas City. The corn maze is part of the spooky presentation “Children of the
Damned Corn,” a production by Coterie At Night which opens at the theatre on October 14th
and runs through October 30th.




Oh, the horror!
By ROBERT TRUSSELL The Kansas City Star


Actor/writer/director Ron Megee is prepared to unveil the world premiere of his latest creation,
“Children of the Damned Corn.” As the title suggests, the just-for-laughs show is a mashup of
negligible horror films from our shared cinematic past.

Presented under the Coterie at Night banner, “Corn” will be performed tonight through Oct. 30 at
the refurbished Just Off Broadway Theatre, 3051 Central. That’s in Penn Valley Park, just
northeast of 31st Street and Broadway.

The story depicts what happens to Milt and Betty, who find themselves stranded in Gatlinville,
which was once home to the world’s largest creamed corn factory. The factory building has
become a church run by a strange child named Malaki. The cast includes several Coterie and
Late Night Theatre veterans, including Martin Buchanan, Kimberley Queen, Peter Weber and
Cody Wyoming. Also in the cast: BJ Allen, Matt Anderson, Teisha Bankston and Mark Johnson.

The production also features a rotating cast of extras portraying the townspeople. In all, 44 actors
play Gatlinville residents — 22 per performance.

The Coterie recommends the show for teens and adults. For ticket information call 816-474-6552
