New Theater Company

$485 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 10 people in 26 months

As many of you are aware over the last ten years I have directed and produced many musicals and plays for a variety type of theater companies ranging from community theater to college theater to professional theater.  When I first starting directing (while still in high school I should mention!) I began my own community theater company with the help of my best friend back on the North Shore of Massachusetts called Centerstage Productions.  This was and still is one of the best moments and proudest achievements in my life.  I tried to keep that company going, but due to college as well as the increased cost of owning your own company I had to let it go.  I then started my own college theater group in Boston and have been directing shows there for the 6+ years.  I have come to the point in my life where I truly want to be able to develop my own mission and vision for a theater group again that welcomes people of all ages and experience.  Theater has gotten me through a lot of hard times in my life and still to this day is the one thing that makes me smile no matter how much work it is.  I have put on many great shows and have gotten to meet some of the most talented people I know.  It is such a privilege to be able to meet new people and aspire them to do amazing things in theater.  With all of this being said, I have decided to begin again my venture into creating a new theater group in Boston.  I know there are many groups in Boston that people could be a part of, but from the many people I have directed in Boston I have found that there is still a lack of community theaters since the area has so many professional theaters.  I am looking to all of you to help me in this continued venture. I call on all the people I have worked with and hopefully the many people that have had a great experience with theater with me.  As you can imagine theater is a very costly endeavor from the production costs to the show rights itself. I am hoping to use any money raised to first go towards finding or renting a theater space. Please know that I already put a lot of my own personal money towards these theater endeavors and I would never want you to think that I would not help fund my own company.  I hope that many of you will be able to see into your hearts and be able to donate to this great cause. Please know that every donation counts, no matter how large or small.  I also encourage you to leave a comment of an experience you have had in my theater companies or with theater in general to show how important this is.

Hello All,
It has been some time since I have shared an update. We are still far away from our goal, but we have a lot I store in the coming months to hopefully raise more money. If you have not already donated and are able to, we would really appreciate it.

We are making some great headway to the goal! I can't thank the people that have already donated enough. There is still time to donate or share this post!

Here is a picture from the first show my best friend and I did. This is where it all began!

DNActors was my reluctant gateway back into the theatre world, and I'm so glad I took the leap and auditioned for Jekyll and Hyde on a whim, not knowing what to expect! My college experience would not have been the same without you or your group. I'm now a poor teacher, but I want to try to do what I can to give that gift to someone else. You're a blast to work with, and I have yet to find anyone as obsessive or thorough or brilliant as you are, and I sincerely miss it! I wish you the best of luck moving forward! Hopefully I can come out and see something sometime!
