Lightswitch Theatre Company (LTC) needs help!!!
We are creating theatrical experiences and the theatrical experiences we want to create cost money. Full transparency of costs is outlined below in descriptions of the first season of productions.
Our productions for season 1 as of right now:
The Listen Experiment by Skyler Matthias - What does it mean to truly listen? Who do we listen to and should we? Six participants share an experience together. Imagine a mix between an escape room without the escaping and a theatrical experience where the participants are the performers. We invite participants into the space to share an experience with each other that they will never forget.
RvW by LTC - Directed by Alexis Cory. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. LTC is responding in the only way we know how: telling stories. RvW is a devised immersive experience exploring the stories of the women impacted by the decisions of those in power.
Where's Tommy? by LTC - Lead by company members Taijee and Skyler Matthias. A devised piece based on the book The Sum of Us by Heather McGee. Little Rock’s prejudiced past persists to this day in the system as well as the language. Where’s Tommy stares back at the past to explore the present to prevent a future where history continues to repeat itself.
What will we spend the money on?
- The Listen Experiment - $630
- RvW - $950
- Where’s Tommy? - $1250
- Additional Company Productions x2 - $1000
- Pop Up Productions and Art Installations - $500
- Website and Business development - $650
LTC abstracts familiar spaces and stories to bring light to a topic and spark conversation. We create playgrounds for unpredictable moments through site-specific, immersive, and experimental theatre. We ask participants to dive in emotionally, mentally, and sometimes, even physically with their experiences, so that we may all take ownership over the stories we share.
