Kinky Boots at Century II Concert Hall

Date: January 9, 2018 to January 11, 2018,
Venue: Century II Performing Arts & Convention Center - 225 W. Douglas Ave., Wichita

The Event:

Based on a true story and the indie film of the same name, KINKY BOOTS follows young Brit Charlie Price, who abandons his family’s shoe factory to live with his demanding girlfriend in London. After the unexpected death of his father, Charlie returns to the struggling factory and finds it’s up to him to figure out a way to keep the business alive. Enter Lola, a fabulous drag queen, who gives Charlie the idea to create ladies’ shoes for men. Soon, the factory is turning out “kinky boots” under the supervision of Charlie and Lola, but can this harebrained scheme actually work' And can these two extremely different men find a common ground and become real friends'

 

Charlie Price has suddenly inherited his father’s shoe factory, which is on the verge of bankruptcy. Trying to live up to his father’s legacy and save the family business, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola. A fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos, Lola turns out to be the one person who can help Charlie become the man he’s meant to be. As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair finds that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible… and discover that when you change your mind about someone, you can change your whole world.

Winner of six 2013 Tony Awards®, Inspired by a true story, KINKY BOOTS features a joyous, Tony-winning score by Cyndi Lauper, direction and Tony-winning choreography by Jerry Mitchell and a hilarious, uplifting book by four-time Tony winner Harvey Fierstein.

 

Don't be fooled by the title - there are no bad words in this musical. The show is about accepting yourself and other people for who they are. Kinky Boots is recommended for ages 10+.
