LEAWOOD STAGE COMPANY TO PRESENT “THE CIVIL WAR” A BROADWAY MUSICAL
Leawood Stage Company in cooperation with the Leawood Parks and Recreation Department is proud to present the Kansas City premier of the Broadway musical The Civil War. Join us March 26, 27, 28 at 7:30 p.m. and March 29 at 2:00 p.m. inside the Lodge at Ironwoods Park, located at 147th and Mission Road.
The Civil War is based on historical accounts; this stunning retrospective covers the emotional landscape of a nation at war. The epic thematic revue puts a human face on the greatest tragedy of American history. It explores the experiences of the soldiers and leaders who fought for their way of life. It also examines the lives of the sweethearts and families whom they left behind, as well as the hopes and fears of slaves. This musical passionately asks us to consider our beliefs about freedom, honor and faith.
Drawing on letters, diaries, firsthand accounts and the words of Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass and Walt Whitman, The Civil War is a thrilling and awe-inspiring “dramatic theatrical concert.” The original Broadway production was nominated for multiple Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and features an unforgettable score filled with Gospel, Country, Rock and Folk by Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll & Hyde, Dracula, and Bonnie & Clyde).
The Leawood Stage Company is delighted to welcome the return of Tim Braselton who directed A Little Night Music and the music for many other productions for LSC.
Don’t miss this opportunity to witness history told through the letters from actual people living during this time of turmoil. This will be a musical to remember for fans of theater, music or history.

To all Leawood residents,
The frequent and sizable recent rain events are causing water related problems for some of our Johnson County Wastewater customers (JCW).
Thus – I wanted to briefly let you know about the Johnson County Waste System Back-up Prevention Program (BUPP) which has available funds. The program began in 1998 due to large rain events and the Commission has continued to fund the program.
Northeast Johnson County includes some of the oldest areas (greater than 50 years old) and is primarily made up of clay pipes. As these pipes age, cracks can develop allowing rain and groundwater to enter the pipes. Water in basements can be caused by many things other than sanitary sewers including rainwater coming in and around home foundations, blocked foundation drains, or improperly sloped ground around the house.
Johnson County Wastewater wants to help Johnson County residents better protect their homes during these rains. This program is voluntary and provides funding to eligible home owners, so they may install a backup prevention device or make plumbing modifications on their property.
JCW staff will investigate all calls to determine if the water in the basement was due to a sanitary sewer back up or water from some other source.
If you hear from constituents regarding sewer backup issues, please feel to direct them to JCW’s website https://jocogov.org/dept/wastewater/engineering/backup-prevention
Effective Friday July 26, 2019, the Leawood False Alarm Reduction Program will be managed by Cry Wolf Services.
