Shawnee Mission East Theatre asks alumni to help record department history


SM East’s Theatre department is putting out a call for alumni to help curate some history from its 55-year history. From director Brian Cappello

Shawnee Mission East Theatre has a 55-year tradition of excellence, and we’d like to celebrate it! The SME Theatre department is in the process of launching a new website and we’d like a major part of it to be alumni contributions. We know there have been thousands of people over the past 55 years who have been proudly labeled “a theatre kid,” and we’d like to get in touch with them. Any interested alum can e-mail Brian Cappello, one of the East theatre teachers, at so he or she can be added to the database. Once the site is up and running, theatre alums will be able to contact each other, let others know what they’re doing now, and share memories of their years in the East Theare Department. Please feel free to email or call 913-993-6761 with any questions.
