Charlotte Chases Her Dream

The Philly May Show is the brain child of Elizabeth Millington who's experience and credits speak for themselves and can be viewed via her 'LinkedIn' page: in/elizabethmillington.

A sell out show at the 'Judith Wright Centre' in Brisbane in 2013, Philly proved to provide a lot of laughs, thanks to an eccentric script, paired with outstanding comic delivery of its lead actor Caitlin Dooley.

Now Philly is back, and Charlotte is joining her, at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.  She is beyond excited, not just because she had such great fun the first time around , but of course because she understands now, after pursuing her acting for 3 years, that opportunities like this do not come every day.  She has been training hard, has gained more experience, and as I've said before, despite being well aware I have some minor stage mum qualities, this is absolutely what she wants.  This is her dream.  This is her sport... I guess you could say, this is equivalent to her being able to travel to another state at a representative level.

Brian and I are very proud of her determination and would love for this to happen for her.  

This funding campaign is to assist in the costs which I feel I should break down as best as possible at this early stage:  Air fares for her and I. 
As Caitlin (Philly herself)  was hoping to start a campaign of her own, we'd like to include her in ours, as a Thankyou to her for considering Charlotte (there was obviously an option to cast a Melbourne child for the show); accommodation close to the venue; assistance with promotion and merchandising.... And in respect of complete honesty... Covering the costs of being off work for 10 days with no annual leave (I work casually and only receive 3 weeks holidays a year, which don't tick over until the 16 May... worst timing I know).

On the chance this is a successful campaign, your money would not be wasted.  It would be used to consider the possibility of an after party in Brisbane later in the year of which we would like to celebrate with those who were able to help.  Maybe fresh headshots so the girls were able to utilise the exposure for future opportunities.

I've never been great about asking for help... But when its about my daughters dream, I'm prepared to put my pride aside... And would love if you spare a dollar two.

Lots of Love and Thanks in Advance

Carrie and Charlotte.  xx
