Music Theater Heritage opened its 2022 season (the company’s 20th anniversary season) with STEVIE: Signed, Sealed Delivered, an MTH original concert production celebrating the life and music of the great Stevie Wonder. The tribute concert features over 25 iconic tracks ranging from Stevie’s early days to Motown and beyond.

The production is written and organized by Ron Lackey and Nate McClendon, with direction and choreography by Marc Wayne. The production includes classic Stevie Wonder arrangements, original arrangements and choreography, and audio clips from actual interviews given by Stevie throughout his career.

The ensemble cast includes Asa Barnes Angel Duong, Ron Lackey, Courtney Germany, Misha Roberts, Ayana Tribitt and Douglass Walker. The six-piece band includes Desmond Mason on keys, Bryan Alford on drums, Nate McClendon on saxophone, Kadesh Flow on trombone, Daniel Dissmore on trumpet and Darrell Mayberry on guitar.

The production team includes music direction by Lackey, lighting design by Shelbi Arndt, sound design by Jon Robertson, costume design by LaToya Rozof, stage design by Glyneisha Johnson and stage management by Lacey. Willis. The production was originally conceived by MTH Artistic Director Tim Scott.

As Kansas City’s COVID numbers continue to drop to their lowest levels since last summer, MTH has initiated a gradual rollback of its health and safety protocols. On March 3, it lifted the requirement that customers and employees must be masked at all times in public MTH spaces. On March 23, MTH also removed requirements that all customers must present proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test.

STEVIE: Signed, Sealed, Delivered plays fifteen performances, from March 24 to April 10. Tickets start at $35 and are available by visiting www.MTHKC.com or by calling the box office at 816.221.6987.
