We did it, Kansas City!

We raised over $300 for Literacy Kansas City, and we put on a show that Kathleen and I, and the cast, are incredibly proud of. ltym cast 2

There was laughter and tears and everything in between, and every one of our incredible cast performed their readings like the rock stars that they are. ltym kc cast readings

We’ve made memories that we will cherish forever and like we’ve said to each other in the last few weeks, the thirteen of us are stuck together now, whether we like it or not. Of course, we love it.

Thank you to the twelve of you that shared your stories. Thank you for walking across that stage, stepping up to the microphone, and pouring your hearts out.

Thank you to the national team that helped Kathleen and I along the way, and never let our newbie selves feel overwhelmed (for too long, at least).

And thank you to all of our family and friends that supported, shared, and cheered us on along the way. Especially on May 1.ltym audience

 

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,

Greta and Kathleen
