"the boy in the high heel shoes"

Greetings to you all!

As some of you may know, my play "the boy in the high heel shoes" has been accepted into the Thespis Venus/Adonis Theatre Festival! I am absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to cast, direct, stage-manage, and hire lighting and sound board operators to make my piece come to life.


"the boy in the high heel shoes" is a one-act play about a young boy and his point of view of the world from on top of a playground slide. we learn about his life at home with a disapproving, alcoholic father; we learn about his mother, who has passed away; and while discovering things about himself and the world around him, he falls in love with the moon.


This opportunity is truly amazing, however, there are many logistical things that I have to think about. How am I going to be able to afford all of this? I am responsible for making the set, finding the costumes, renting rehearsal spaces, etc. etc. That's where the world comes in! I'm making this page to kindly ask YOU for donations of all shapes and sizes. Anything helps. Really. To me, a donation is more than just "funding." A donation is knowing that people are supporting me, and that is what I believe is most important. This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity, and I know that this piece of theatre can make an impact on many peoples lives. So, with that said, if you do feel inclined to donate, just follow the instructions on the page. I am so so so grateful for this opportunity, and, of course, am so so so grateful to all of you who help the cause!


Peace, Love, and Namaste,
-Matt
