Theater that Helps in The Pandemic

The Pressure Players are a nonprofit company of performers who are committed to keeping creative careers thriving in the midst of coronavirus. We're a company launched amid the pandemic focused on telling original stories with universal applicability, regardless of your origin.

Our launch project, scheduled to premiere in July 2020, is an audio adaptation of H.G. Wells' "War of the Worlds." Just $2,000 would help us:

1. Safely create, produce, and master the audio project- which we promise will keep you entertained and hopeful in a time where hope is difficult to find.

2. Compensate the creative and reputable people involved. At this time, the pandemic has many of them out of work and unable to provide for their families.

3. Launch a secure and safe website to build awareness of who we are and what we do.

For $20, we'll give you an online shoutout on our company platforms!

For $50, we'll give you a shoutout and a FREE copy of our audio performance.

For $100, we'll give you a shoutout, a FREE copy of our launch show, give you a 15-minute call with the cast, & list you as a patron on our website.

We'd love to have your support. In fact, it would change our lives. All the funds we raise go directly to the launch of our company's project and our first season. Help us create theater that helps you back, even under pressure.
