Greta Funk Kansas City Director — is a mom of four elementary aged children, two boys and two girls (ages 10, 8, 6, and 4) and is married to a hard working Midwest man. They all keep her busy enough, but she also has a part time gig for a local community college, blogs at GFunkified, and does some freelance writing on the side. Greta is still shocked that her essay from the 2013 Kansas City show was included in the anthology LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER: What She Said Then, What We’re Saying Now. The show completely changed her life when she was a cast member, and she is over the moon to be directing for the 2016 season and bringing a whole new set of stories of motherhood to the Kansas City area.
Kathleen Fisher Kansas City Producer is an empty-nester after raising three children. Her little darlings grew up to be a kindergarten teacher, an interior designer and a dancer. She is married to a biochemist. They all seem to have job skills that she sorely lacks as she can point to a dozen places in Kansas City that she has worked at with mild success and underwhelming longevity. Her job hopping (or as her husband says “job exploring”) has garnered her a tribe of creative gypsies that join her in happy hours, cheering on the Kansas City Royals, First Fridays in the West Bottoms and getting dirt under their nails in the garden. For the last five years she has blogged at A Speckled Trout.
Being in the cast of the 2014 show was the scariest, most exhilarating thing she’d ever done and she knew the gig wasn’t up. Before agreeing to take on the producer role for LTYM, however, she looked to the heavens and asked herself WWTD.
