KCART is proud to present the second radio play of its new “Amplify” series, where young playwrights have the chance to experience the process of producing their radio play from start to finish.
In Vietnam in 1946, the 4th generation medicine man of the Le family receives a visit from the spirit of his father, the previous medicine man, who warns of the danger and the endless war to come. The spirit insists that the medicine man find a successor soon, but with only a daughter left in the family, who could he possibly teach to be the next “medicine man?”
Featuring Vi Tran, Paul Kim, Erika Crane Ricketts, and Ai Vy Bui with direction from Shawna Peña-Downing and sound design by Thomas Newby. Written by Bui Ngoc Hieu, a Vietnamese-American actor, filmmaker, playwright, and student who is currently pursuing a BA in Theatre at UMKC.

What you may not know is that newly-passed government stimulus also extends the tax benefits of the CARES Act into 2021! When you donate any amount (up to $300 in total donations for individuals, and up to $600 for those filing jointly), you will be eligible to claim a deduction of equal amount in addition to the standard deduction. For our donors who itemize, there are even greater potential benefits. As always, please speak to your tax advisor for details.
