Hi everyone! We are Richard Lam and Crystal Lee, two Toronto-based theatre creators who together form Puzzle Piece, a theatre company dedicated to creating shows that are fresh, exciting, and meaningful. We're raising money to support our first show: a brand-new modern adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupery's classic children's novel The Little Prince that we're calling The Little Prince: Reimagined. 

We've been working on The Little Prince: Reimagined for a while now, and we're almost ready to put it on stage! We have a great script, a gorgeous staging concept, and an incredible team that features director Jon Lachlan Stewart, designer Anahita Dehbonehie, and puppeteer/performer Kira Hall. We're taking the show to Sudbury, ON, for four workshop shows in early February 2019, and performing the world premiere of our adaptation in Toronto from March 22-April 13, 2019. We have all the ingredients for a truly special production, and we just need a little help to make sure they come together!

Your support today will take us all the way through our development to our opening night in Toronto. It will help us travel to Sudbury in February, pay our artists for their work, provide materials and space to build our set and staging elements, and give us space and time to perfect the show in Toronto before we open.

We're so excited to bring a new life to the timeless story of The Little Prince. With your help, we know we're going to make a show that's touching, fun, and totally unforgettable.

Hello again everyone! It's been a little while since you've heard from us, and we have been BUSY! In the last few months we've rehearsed the show, and done our workshop presentation in Sudbury. The show was incredibly well-received by audiences there - we were blown away by the warm response we got. (We've attached a few pictures so you can see!)

It's the home stretch now - we start performances in Toronto on March 22! We're also about 92% of the way to the fundraising goal we set back in December, so we're asking one more favour: If you could share our campaign with your networks one last time, it would really help us with the final push.

If you want to help further, you could top up your donation with an extra few dollars - if everyone who donated gave us $5 today, we'd be finished!

Making this show has been an absolute dream, and it's all because of you and your support. We are so excited to share our work with you!

If you'd like to stay in touch with us, and the project, please check out our website at www.puzzlepiece.ca

From the bottom of our hearts - thank you!
-Richard and Crystal

Our campaign isn't even a week old yet, and the response has been INCREDIBLE! In just six days, we are over 40% of the way to our goal.

Thanks to everyone who donated - your support is already going to good use here at our puppet-building party! What's this huge thing we're folding? You'll have to come to the show to find out!

Thanks so much to those who have already donated, and if you have time, please share our campaign with your friends and family!

-Richard and Crystal
