The Kick Theater

Join the Midwest Innocence Project Student Organization for a night you'll never forget! "Mind of the Innocent" will feature artwork created by wrongfully incarcerated individuals and by exonerees. From 6:30-7:30pm, Floyd Bledsoe, who was exonerated just over a year ago, will showcase some of his incredible paintings, which will be available for purchase. Food and drinks will also be available for purchase from the Green Room and the Westport Coffeehouse and can be brought into the theater at anytime. At 7:30pm, the on-stage performance will start. Act 1 will feature short poems and stories written by some of the Midwest Innocent Project's current clients, such as Michael Politte, Rodney Lincoln, Tim Chaney, and Charles Erickson. Act 2 will feature a spoken word play written by another MIP client– Ricky Kidd, and will be performed by some of KC finest actors, including Frank Oakley III (who will be playing Ricky) Branden Mims, De'Markcus Howell, Bess Osburn Hayles, and RC Shivers! Booklets of the written works will also be available for purchase, along with MIPSO T-shirts, bracelets, and more! Tickets cost $10 and can be bought on Eventbrite (see link above) or at the door! ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO TO OUR EXONEREE FUND AND TO MIP! Lastly, please note that the Kick Theater is technically located at 4010 Pennsylvania Ave, but there's no front door to the theater, so attendees will have to go in either through the Westport Coffeehouse and then down the stairs or through the Green Room and into it's back hallway!

Ch. 41's Patrick Fazio asks the State to explain why it opposes the effort to #FreeRickyKidd. Contact Governor Eric Greitens and tell him you support Ricky's release.
