Help Produce Eden in Babylon

$4,500 goal

Campaign created 8 months ago
Having completed a working draft and demo to my new musical Eden in Babylon,  I am seeking funds to cover the costs of copying numerous hard copy scripts, CD's and postage costs, in order to get the musical to theatre companies accepting original musicals in English-speaking countries.  I also need to raise funds for rental of a local 400-seat house where I can mount a four-night trial production of my piece.  The theater rents at $200/night, and I will have to pay the staff provided $15/hr throughout tech week, when I move my cast into the theater.  There will of course be many other costs involved in getting this show off the ground, but I am trying to give you a ballpark idea of what's going to be involved here.   

Eden in Babylon  is a musical exploring the effects of homelessness on the youth of today's America.   I myself spent many years struggling on the streets and in unacceptable group living situations, before finally being able to secure a dignified, affordable dwelling space -- with privacy and security -- in a culturally conscious, Art-positive community.  It is here in this small University town in North Idaho that I have been able to create a full length musical -- book, music & lyrics -- depicting what the realities of homelessness are like for the young people of 21st Century America.  So this project is not only near and dear to my heart; it is of tremendous import, and timely in its potential to help bridge the ever-widening Class Gap in America today.  Please support this worthy cause, and help me get this show on the road.
