KC Area Liaison Update, Oct 2010

The Kansas City area Equity community celebrated Labor Day by jointly hosting a performing arts union “Labor-Palooza” with members of AEA, AGMA, AGVA, AFTRA and SAG.

This summer, The Kansas City Fringe Festival employed 23 Equity artists in 8 productions. Festival Director Cheryl Kimmi worked with business rep Ann Gordon to work out an agreement that would allow AEA members to participate in this annual extravaganza.

AEA member Kip Niven has developed a special series of staged readings called “EarTh”, which stands for “Equity Actors’ Readers’ Theatre”. He has worked closely with Ann Gordon from the Chicago office to make this wonderful opportunity for Equity actors a reality. The first presentation will be THE MADWOMAN OF CHAILLOT and will involve 20 Equity actors, 1 Equity stage manager and 2 EMCs.
