Our work is young, and all good things must start somewhere. We are asking that in the coming weeks you might consider donating any amount you see fit in order to help us get to our feet for the journey ahead.
We opened our very first production on June 6, 2014 at Northwestern University's Mussetter-Strubel Theatrewith Teresa Rebeck’s provocative comedy Spike Heels -a production in which Chicago Examiner reviewer Jodie Jacobs said "everything works to perfection." We are now looking to our second production of the season, JohnKolvenbach's Love Song, praised by the Chicago Sun-Times as "...the stuff of pure theatre. It's language, relationships, imagery and overall worldview are deeply rooted in the hothouse atmosphere of that most intimate and fantastical forum." It opens October 24, 2014 at Northwestern University's Hal and Martha HyerWallis Theatre.
Creating such fantasies of course requires a modest amount of financial support. Theatre space rentals for the length of the production range from $1600 - $2,000, $1500 for technical elements, $1000 for marketing, $700 for rights, and $500 for costuming. Being a new company, we have established a much small goal for our campaign in hopes of meeting it and keeping a larger percentage, (you get to keep all the funds you raise, but if you don't meet your goal, you keep a smaller percentage). Realistically, $6000 would be the ideal amount to raise in order to cover the necessary expenses. Anything above and beyond puts us on a great path toward our exciting 2015 season, to be announced this December!
While many give simply for the joy, it is always nice to receive something in return. While we are a non-profit organization, currently in the process of applying for 501(c)(3) status, we have given much consideration to providing perks that reward various levels of generosity by making you a part of our community. While some perks are material, such as works of art or signed posters and programs, there also various experiences available, including reserved premium seating, personal access to cast and crew, and accommodations for trips to see our show!
