City Theatre of Independence

 Crew Who's Who 

  • Coralyn Martin (Director)

    (Director) community theatre background began with CTI children’s theatre, but her travels as an actorand comedian have taken her to Hollywood and back. She trained in comedy performance and writing at Second CityHollywood and her credits include 11 different original comedy shows and musicals that have been performed atRenaissance and theatre festivals across the country. Now back home, she is the Creative Director of the upcomingSocial Cabaret event space in the Overland Park, KS area.“I believe comedy has the power to unite people of all backgrounds. Laughter at the absurd, the annoying, the shocking,and the silly is a transcendent experience that gives everyone a break from fear, worry, loneliness, anddisconnection. The world seems scarier for people every day, but if we can still laugh at a joke, we remind ourselveswe are still human, and maybe everything will be alright.”
