Mr. Denton Yockey

Term:

Since Sept 2008

Profile:

Denton Yockey joined Starlight Theatre as President and Executive Producer in September 2008. He brings to Starlight more than 28 years of experience in professional theatre management and production, and 30 total years in professional theatre. Most recently, he spent 11 years as President and Executive Producer of Casa Manana in Fort Worth, Texas.

Leadership Statement:

Starlight Theatre is one of the most successful not-for-profit theatres in the United States. Starlight is committed to the highest level of artistry, and its focus on patron satisfaction is second to none. Thanks to its depth of audience development and fund-raising efforts, Starlight affords Kansas Citians perhaps the lowest average Broadway ticket price anywhere. In recent years, Starlight's education efforts have reached new heights with the success of multiple programs including the Vincent Legacy Scholarship awards, the Blue Star Awards recognizing outstanding musical theatre performance and production in area high schools, and the Starlight STARS intensive arts training program. Starlight remains committed to serving the greater Kansas City area through expanded programs in education and community outreach, as it explores new production opportunities and collaborations in the future.

Program: Broadway & Concert Entertainment (GuideStar Exchange,
The GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more.
April 2014)

Budget:
$12,247,179
Category:
Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other
Population Served:
General Public/Unspecified

Program Description:

Starlight Theatre's annual summer series features national Broadway tours, local productions and a wide variety of concert events. The original Starlight stage was constructed in 1950 as part of Kansas City, Missouri's centennial celebration, making Starlight the oldest - and largest - outdoor performing arts venue in the metropolitan area. In addition, it is one of only three remaining outdoor theatre venues of its kind in the United States. Contributions and sponsorships help to close the gap between earned revenue and expenses. Production costs continue to escalate, as Starlight remains committed to keeping its ticket prices affordable.

Program Long-Term Success:

Continuing affordability for Starlight patrons would be concurrent with an increasing national profile and reputation for excellence; a platform to collaborate, create, direct and produce original works on the Cohen stage; and an even stronger ability to pull first run tours. Concert bookings enable Starlight to claim spot as premier outdoor concert venue in Midwest,

Program Short-Term Success:

A growing network and national presence will mean another strong lineup of shows in 2012 and even more concerts. Growing tickets sales with new subscribers and attracting a more youthful following for the Broadway series will provide an expanding base for the future.

Program Success Monitored by:

Number of season ticket renewals; number of single, group, multi-show and concert tickets renewed or sold for a first time; new season ticket subscriptions; number of group sales and/or group special events held in conjunction with concerts or Broadway events; press reviews; annual audience feedback surveys; financial statements that provide a bottom-line reflection of programming successes or misses.

Program Success Examples:

Starlight's strong lineup has kept ticket income steady despite a difficult economy. Starlight's relationship with concert booking agency Live Nation has allowed them to present diverse programming from B.B. King and James Taylor to Train and Phish. Starlight measures the success of their core programs by the positive reviews and patron feedback as well as the number of return visits.

Category:

Program Description:

Starlight Theatre's educational programs occur year-round, onstage and off for area youth. Current educational programming includes: the Bob Rohlf summer internship program which had 18 students hired in summer 2012; the Vincent Legacy Scholarship program; Starlight STARS, an year-round training program in musical theatre for teens; Blue Star Awards program to recognize achievement in high school musical theatre, which includes two Rising Stars scholarships to Blue Star Nominees; Act Like an Animal summer camps for 5- to10-year-olds, held in collaboration with the Kansas City Zoo; Starlight Theatre Academy classes offered at locations across the metro in spring and fall for pre-K through teens and Starlight on Site in-school performing arts curriculum to the Afrikan Centered Education Collegium Campus of the Kansas City Missouri School District. New in 2012, Starlight Children's Theatre, featuring six matinee performances excuslivly for students, was presented at Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. Starlight believes that performing arts experiences are tools for students who wish to further develop their discipline, confidence, work ethic, respect for themselves and others, integrity and pride of accomplishment. Programs are funded by the operating fund and the generosity of Starlight donors.

Program Long-Term Success:

Our desire is to see young people who have come through the Starlight training programs gain admittance to the most prestigious musical theatre training programs in the country, find success on a national stage, and become leaders in this and other communities. The desire for Starlight is that its programs would garner a reputation as a premier musical theatre training program both regionally and nationally and that our presence in the community and in the lives of young people would make a profound difference for good.

Program Short-Term Success:

Based on survey information presented to each participant group (and parent group, as appropriate), Starlight measures the change in knowledge and experience (gained by participating in Starlight operations during summer internships), ability (enhanced performance or audition technique resulting from master classes or scholarship-supported training) and satisfaction of the participant groups with their experience. Additionally, an increase in participants in every category.

Program Success Monitored by:

1.The number of "return customers" to participate in a program(s); 2. Continuing relationships with current and former students in order to build a network and encourage their success. 3. Reports / feedback from student academic advisor(s) on the noticeable impact of our program on students' morale, academic performance, social adeptness, confidence, performance, academic achievement and achievement in multiple other categories. 4. Growing presence in Kansas City of working actors who participated in Starlight programs.

Program Success Examples:

1.One VLS winner who describes himself as "saved by the arts and the program." 2. The Bob Rohlf Internship Program increased the number of student interns to 18. 3. The Starlight STARS expanded to a year-round program and participated in community events and were featured at the 2011 Plaza Lighting Ceremony. 4. Several return campers to the Act Like an Animal Camp. 5. Nearly 5,300 students attended the inaugural season of Starlight Children's Theatre.

Other Named Groups

Program Description:

The Starlight Theatre Community Ticket Program is designed to provide access to Broadway shows for groups who would otherwise be unable to enjoy live theatre performances due to economic, medical or other restrictive causes. This program, which provides 364 complimentary tickets to each night of each Broadway performance, is available to 501(c)(3) charitable organizations operating in the bi-state area. As it is not possible to assist all interested 501(c)(3) organizations, the focus of this program is to enhance the lives of underprivileged and at-risk youth, the medically dependent or disabled, and low-income senior citizens. This program's tickets are distributed through partnering organizations in order to qualify and track the recipients and their ticket use.

Program Long-Term Success:

The Community Ticket Program makes available nearly 11,000 free tickets to Kansas City area charitable organizations. The program has existed since the city-owned theatre's chartering and has provided thousands of Kansas Citians the opportunity to enjoy professional musical theatre at no cost.

Program Short-Term Success:

During the 2012 Broadway season, 109 charitable organizations participated in Starlight's Community Ticket Program with 11% of those groups participating for the first time. Among the groups with the highest usage percentage were Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Kansas City, Guardian Angel Group Home, G.R.A.D.E. Foundation, Hispanic Economic Development Corporation, Ivanhoe Neighborhood Association, Salvation Army Access House and Village Shalom.

Program Success Monitored by:

The number of new and returning organizations that apply to participate in the Community Ticket Program; the percentage of actual usage of tickets by individual organizations; as indicated earlier, the program is largely focused on organizations that serve underprivileged or at-risk youth, the medically dependent or disabled, and low-income senior citizens.

Program Success Examples:

Many groups return each season; personal testimonials and thank you letters are provided to Starlight; increased usage of Community tickets.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

Starlight remains committed to promoting excellence in the art of musical theatre. This year, five of the six Broadway productions had either been nominated or received Tony Awards, many in several categories. As the economy continues to present challenges for area nonprofits, every effort has been made to continue to provide top-quality theatre opportunities for the Kansas City citizens. Starlight took their show on the road in August 2012 providing season ticket holders an opportunity to experience the new the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts with its own production of AIDA performed at the Center.. Starlight also believes that collaborations between organizations are vital to maintaining thriving programs for children and families. Utilizing the assets of both groups allows each to make a greater impact in their offerings. In 2012, Starlight partnered with the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in presenting the Starlight Children's Theatre at the Kauffman. This included six public performances and three matinees exclusively for school groups. Educational curriculum materials were provided to each of the teachers to enhance the experience for the students. Starlight partnered once again with the Kansas City Zoo in the Act Like an Animal Camp program which welcomed 117 campers this year. The Blue Star Awards program is an educational outreach program modeled after Broadway's Tony Awards which recognizes and encourages area high school student's involvement in the performing arts. The Blue Star Awards celebrated its 10thAnniversary this year. The program has grown from 17 high schools to nearly 50 schools and productions each school year. The current participants hail from 10 counties from both sides of the state line. Each May, nomination delivery day and the awards gal on the Starlight stage are must-see events for high school students, faculty, parents and theatre fans. The Starlight STARS of Tomorrow performance troupe and training program which expanded to a year-round program were able to enjoy master workshops with professional Broadway performers from each of the six shows as well as represent Starlight Theatre by sharing their talents at several area community events. The Starlight STARS were one of the featured acts at the televised 2011 Plaza Lighting Ceremony performing right as the switch was thrown. Starlight seeks to expand access to professional musical theatre performances by raising funds to help keep ticket prices affordable. Located in Kansas City's Swope Park, Starlight is uniquely positioned to serve as an engine for economic development in its urban neighborhood. Starlight also seeks to advance its educational programming to provide metro area students the training and skills they need to succeed at all levels of theatre performance, as well as demonstrate the applicability of such skills to non-performance professions in the arts. Finally, with the financial support of patrons, donors and friends, Starlight seeks to heighten its profile and extend its reach well beyond the borders of its 16 acres in Swope Park. As the Starlight brand moves throughout the Kansas City community, financial needs will increase. Donations will equip Starlight to serve the theatre lovers of today and tomorrow.
