New Series Features Kansas City-Based Actors


The life of an actor can sometimes resemble a pattern of unpredictable weather. Ask Kansas City actors to reflect over the past several years, and they'll relate stories of both drought and prosperity.

Kansas City, MO – There have been several reasons for that, yet most agree things are getting better, thanks to productions like one next week, when a new company premieres the latest venture for bringing actors to projects they'd never get to do otherwise. KCUR's Steve Walker reports.

The inaugural series of EARTh (Equity Actors' Readers' Theatre) begins Monday, October 11 at 7:30PM with a reading of Jean Giraudoux's "The Madwoman of Chaillot," in the theatre/auditorium in the Music and Arts Building at St. Teresa's Academy, 5601 Wyandotte Street (between 55th and 57th Streets, between Wornall and Brookside Blvd.), Kansas City, MO 64113.
