Several students at UVU have a dream. Throughout the years we've studied and worked and volunteered and seen the cogs spin as they create the magic of a theatrical experience. That electricity, that contagious sense of achieving the impossible became our dream. We've seen the magic happen, we've been a part of those experiences, and now we want to create one ourselves.
Banding together, we've written, cast, directed, designed and are in the process of building a theatrical experience of our own! A modern comedic-tragedy that both makes you laugh and tugs at the deepest heartstrings. We've worked countless hours to bring this show together and we're on the precipice of a great piece of work, but we need your help.
Theater can take many forms and usually comes at a price. While all of the work by the students is being donated, the materials, the equipment, and space required for our production all have a cost. Your donation, big or small, will help us to purchase lumber, paint, paper, advertisements, educational displays, costumes, makeup, lighting equipment, music and sound effects. We're not trying to break the bank, but we are working to create a product that all of us are proud to share. Any money beyond the required expenses will be donated in part to the school to fund projects like this in the future, and in part to a local charity.
Through this project, we've learned a lot, and we continue to learn something new each and every day. Our skills are important to us, demonstrating those skills to the community, sharing our work with the people we love, and paving the pathway for students that come after us are all part of the importance of this project.
Don't forget to share this with your friends! We appreciate your donation and are excited to share with you the magic of our experience.
For your reading pleasure, we've included a brief synopsis of the show (rated PG-13 for mild language and some intense themes).
