The Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre continues the sixth season of Script-in-Hand performances with Terrence McNally’s Master Class. The 2012 series, Women of the Years, features some of the most compelling female leads in drama.

This confrontational drama portrays opera diva Maria Callas as she conducts abusive one-on-one singing lessons with promising young students who are quickly disillusioned by their interactions with the once-great star.

The 2012 Script-in-Hand Women of the Years series is co-sponsored by the UMKC Women's Center.

Funding for this series provided by a grant from the William T. Kemper Foundation – Commerce Bank, Trustee, with additional support from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.

A reception follows the performance, sponsored by Friends of the Kansas City Public Library.
