After more than a year of COVID-19 related shutdowns and a near standstill for community theatre, Johnson County Park and Recreation District is bringing back a new season of Theatre in the Park.

The first show of the summer season, “Mamma Mia,” debuts Friday, June 4, at the outdoor theatre at 7710 Renner Road, as part of Shawnee Mission Park.
