About Storybook

Storybook Theatre is a theatre arts and music education program serving students ages 4-18 in the Kansas City metropolitan area. Storybook's students come from all over the metro to our convenient location near I-70 and 40 Highway in Kansas City.

Storybook offers acting classes and music lessons for kids of all ages. Our classes are designed for kids to have regular, routine opportunities to perform their art onstage in front of a live audience, as we believe that performers should be PERFORMING! Our studio is always expanding based on the demand for new class types - check back often to see what we've added to the lineup!  

You can also sign up for Storybook Theatre's Email List to receive new class information as soon as it is available!

"Both of my kids just adore Miss Julie and Storybook. They have learned so much with the small casts and more one-on-one time with their director. It's like an extended family for them. I recommend Storybook for any child interested in theatre." -HeatherAnne, mom of Jasper and Risa

Meet Storybook's Director


Julie Baum has been the owner and director of Storybook Theatre since 2005. Formerly known as AGDT, Storybook was originally created as a homeschool enrichment program that with unprecedented growth turned into a full-time studio operation. Julie has directed 185+ productions for Storybook, as well as directed and worked on multiple theatrical productions in the local community. Julie's passion is to make sure that each student who walks through Storybook's studio door feels that they are an important part of the classes and shows that they participate in - and that they will always remember their time at Storybook as something truly magical. 

Julie lives in Lees Summit with her amazing husband, three spectacular kids and a small army of needy cats. When she's not teaching, she can usually be found plotting world travels, singing with the car windows rolled down, eating pie, collecting ridiculously oversized earrings or making costumes in the middle of the night.
