KickStarter Success!

Posted by: on April 5, 2011

Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who helped support Subterranea through our recent KickStarter campaign!!!

As of this past Sunday evening, the KickStarter campaign has concluded, and with your help we raised $7,605.00; that’s over 150% of the amount that we hoped to raise! These funds will really help offset the enormous costs involved in staging this performance.

We would also like to thank everyone who attended the Sneak-Peak performance party on March 12th. That event was also a huge success!

So now we are just over 3 weeks away from opening night on April 28th! Can you believe it! We can’t!

Andrew Oswald has been directing his butt off, and the music from composer Jeff Halpern sounds amazing! We’re really blessed and excited to be working with guest performers Megan Loomis and Lani Corson. We should be seeing some of the wardrobe designed by Chasity Neutze really soon.

*** TICKETS are now on sale for Subterranea. ***

There are 11 performances, we hope you’ll be able to share an evening with us.
