"It Takes A Rainbow" is our original, one-hour musical written for family entertainment. It is an Official Selection for inclusion in New York City's Midtown International Theatre Festival, summer 2017.

We are very honored!

But we need funds to realize the full potential of this show. We must hire our own actors, a director, an accompanist, and so on. 

This summer will be here before you know it, so we need to raise capital fast.

This is a musical that teaches the value of tolerance and inclusion. It is a message so very timely for today, and audiences have praised the show.  

Now we want to see this musical reach as many people as possible.

Please join us by helping get this musical in front of a New York City audience. 

Thank you!
Emily & Rich

The message of tolerance and love and embracing differences is so wonderful in today's society. Sharing this message through song and dance, especially, with younger generations, is absolutely wonderful! Bravo!!
