Greetings, Friends of Idiot String and The Peripatetic Players,
The Peripatetic Players are back at it again, and they need YOUR help!
In 2019, we created an original work based onThe Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. Our goal was to re-mount this production and adapt the other books in the trilogy into two plays.
This year we begin our quest again!
The Peripatetic Players are raising funds to re-start their quest across Middle Earth! This summer, we will be performing A Lord of a Ring in Suitcase: The Two-Part Trilogy (The Extendish Edition) across Bay Area parks and public spaces.
We'll be at a different park each weekend, offering several performances at each location. So you can see one show, two shows in two days, or both shows in one day! All performances are offered FREE to the public, and your donations help keep this possible.
Even the smallest donations can change the course of this play! Here are some examples of what your contributions can do:

$5 – Gives us Warm Fuzzies
$10 – Ensures our First Aid Kit is well-stocked
$25 – Transports the Players to (approximately) one performance
$50 – Creates a set of mini-costumes for the audience to wear
$100 – Subsidizes the average park permit fees for one performance
$250 – Provides us with printed materials, such as scripts, postcards, and posters
$500 – Buys paint and supplies to make our scenery merry and bright
The lighting of the beacons (aka the start of the fundraiser) will begin on March 13 and concluding on April 3 with a celebratory feast (picnic) at The Golden Hall in Rohan (Cedar Rose Park in Berkeley). Whether you pledge your support with a donation or a social media share, we hope you can join us!
