Actors & Artists As Activists

Please donate to our new campaign here!

WHO WILL BENEFIT

This funding will help  to pay the diverse and talented crew of actors and artists who are making socially relevant art to educate and entertain audiences.

WHAT FUNDS WILL BE USED FOR
 
We have now been granted space and 12 performances at the historical Theater for the New City in the East Village.  This is a blessing! We need the initial monies to buy materials to build sets, costumes,  and to pay our actors and stage crewe for their time and talents. We plan on doing future runs of this piece, and Melanie Maria's other plays, as well as making films-- which will mean more productions costs for camera rentals, editing, etc. You can check www.melaniemariagoodreaux.com 
WE NEED FUNDS IN THIS TIME FRAME

We need initial monies in November to buy rehearsal space and materials for the play-- ultimately, these monies go to pay the artists involved-- the actors, set designers, stage manager, and I will need to begin paying them by January 11th.

WHAT YOUR SUPPORT MEANS TO US
We have a strong crewe with a history of creating great work with only our hearts and the excellence of our art in mind. This financial boost from our community will make this a more comfortable endeavor, rather than an uphill struggle, and will show us that our community still sees and supports art and artists with innovative visions. We can only do this WITH YOU and FOR YOU.

HOW GRATEFUL WE WILL BE
We are fortunate enough to have a major illustrator creating our signs and marquee. We will be so grateful for your help that will ensure a beautiful poster of our show signed by the illustrator and cast members, mentions of your name or company in our play bill, while large funders can enjoy a homemade bowl of gumbo and personal conversation with the playwright herself.
