KCRep – A Fearless Fête 2018

KCRep’s A Fearless Fête 2018 – Live from Kansas City, it’s Saturday Night was held on May 19th at Spencer Theatre on the UMKC campus. Partygoers dressed as their favorite Saturday Night Live character and enjoyed hilarious performances by The Second City comedy troupe and Seth Herzog, resident comedian at The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Yvette and Leo Morton served as chairmen of the event that supports KCRep’s nationally-acclaimed productions, the OriginKCNew Works Program and the more than 13,000 area students and teachers KCRep serves each season through its education program.
