An ESU KC Rep Group Night:

Ghost Light: A Haunted Night of Songs and Stories

Our next ESU Outdoor Group Night is Sunday, October 10, 2021, at 7:00 pm. This is quite different from our last KC Rep Group Night. It's a multi-media program described as a  hybrid concert and ghost story event that weaves together local storytellers and musicians who share frighteningly fun tales from KC's cultural crossroads that will leave you shaking with excitement! You won't want to miss Kansas City's favorite new Halloween tradition.

It will be outdoors, under the stars on the South Lawn of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Your family and friends will be transported into the world of spirits, hauntings, and the great unknown. Music will be provided by Latinx rock'n'rollers Enrique Chi and Juan-Carlos Chaurand of KC's very own Latin Grammy-nominated band Making Movies as featured performers!

Just like the last KC Rep outdoor event—BYOC—Bring Your Own Chair, so please bring a blanket, beach towel, or lawn chairs with you. Concessions will be available for sale including a coffee bar, wine, and homemade cookies. Patrons are welcome to bring food and drink. Masks must be worn over the nose and mouth at all times unless you are seated and eating or drinking.

When: Sunday, October 10, 2021, at 7:00 pm

Where: South lawn of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.

Bring: Your own chair or blanket, bring food, snacks, drink if you wish

Tickets: $30 non-reserved seating. Click here to purchase tickets. for the October 10 performance.

Arrive: Please arrive about 60 minutes before play begins to get best seating. Look for me. I'll try to save an area for our group if we can.

KC Rep Inclement Weather Policy

If a performance is cancelled due to inclement weather, we will try to get you into a later performance of the same production based on your availability. If that is not possible, we will offer you a credit, refund, or the opportunity to donate your tickets to support our 501c3 nonprofit theatre company.


KC Rep Safety Guidelines

This performance takes place outside, and we have limited capacity to ensure that there is proper space for adequate social distancing between groups.

To protect our staff, we respectfully ask that you wear your face mask when entering and leaving the performance space. Once seated with your party and socially distanced from others, you may remove your mask.

Per CDC guidelines, patrons will be REQUIRED to wear face masks when entering indoor spaces, such as using the restroom facilities inside the Museum.
