LACE Welcomes Carly Bird to the Team!

Our LACE family is getting a little bigger… We are incredibly happy to introduce Carly Bird as our official Public Relations Manager/Community Liaison.

Her unshakeable determination, quick wit, and relentless positivity are assets that we have no doubt will lead to an amazing show in 2018!

LACE Welcomes Back Erica Batton!

LACE is always excited to welcome back the amazing Erica Batton! She created our show’s mascot Lacey beautiful mascot! Come out and meet her this March in the MHK!
Erica Batton is an illustrator, writer, and lover of all things absurd. She’s been drawing since she could pick up a pencil and her love for making others laugh dates back to that one time in first grade when she almost got kicked off the bus for repeating a joke she overheard her dad telling his construction worker buddies.
Erica has since then matured and refined her skills. She also realized her dad tells some really terrible jokes. Armed with a decade’s worth of art education under her belt, Erica now writes and draws pictures to amuse herself for a living.
In her spare time, she draws and paints for fun. The rest of her time is eaten up reading comic books and researching questionable things on The Google.
She resides in the Kansas City area with her roommate and two cats: Cobra and Grimlock (yes, like the Dinobot).
