SERVANT Students Seeking Scotland

$9,334 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 162 people in 5 months
Hello Friends and Family, our production of Carlo Goldoni's THE SERVANT OF TWO MASTERS has been selected to perform at the prestigious Edinburgh International Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland.  It is an amazing honor, and we are excited beyond belief.  However, as we have entered SERVANT as an independent production--as opposed to Regent University produced, there are a great many expenses we need to cover if this dream is to become a reality: rental of the venue, marketing, registration with the Fringe Festival, and all the costs related to reviving the production.  WE NEED YOUR HELP to get the production to Edinburgh, and to help cover student expenses. If we can get 400 hundred of our friends and family to donate $25 each we can remount this hilarious show in Scotland!

The Fringe is one of the most exciting theatre festivals in the world.  Our students will not only perform, they will be able to experience  productions featuring amazing artists from around the globe. The students  definitely have "skin in the game" and are fully committed to purchasing their flights, food, and discounted lodging has already been reserved in the heart of Old Town Edinburgh near our venue.

We’ve paid our registration fee with the Fringe Festival Office and our first installment payment on our venue rental (about $2700). We’ve two more rental installments to go—the next coming due on May 1. THAT’S WHERE YOUR HELP COMES IN. Our performance dates are August 4-11 ( Saturday to Saturday) and we'd love to see you in Edinburgh!  In the meantime, please consider helping us make this exciting opportunity a reality with a donation of $25 (or more if you can!).  We REALLY do need your help!  We know we have a great show featuring an amazingly talented cast and crew--a show that is perfect fit for the Fringe. Help us get it there!  Thank you and bless you for helping.  Check back periodically to see how we're doing.  As we get closer we’ll create a Facebook page so everyone can follow along with us. Please share our link—we're counting on you to help us SPREAD THE WORD!

We are in rehearsal! The cast and crew have reunited after an extended hiatus—and the show us back in its feet! We now have about 1.5 weeks to work and fine-tune it before we depart for Scotland. Thank you so very much for helping us realize this dream. We are still about $700 short of our GoFundMe goal, so if you know of anyone who might be inclined to donate to a project such as ours, please do direct them to our GoFundMe and website: www.servantoftwomasters.wixsite.com/fringefest
Thank you. Edinburgh is on the horizon!

Less than a week away from launch date for SERVANT remount for Edinburgh Fringe. We have raised $9,124 in GoFundMe thanks to AMAZING generosity of our family, friends, and theater lovers everywhere. Our cast and crew still have a few contacts to reach out to, so I am confident that we will reach our Goal before we leave for Edinburgh on the 29th. Thank you so VERY, VERY much for your support. As soon as I get back to Virginia Beach on the 10th we are going to work on your incentives--and overjoyed to do so!

A quick update: we will begin three weeks of rehearsals on July 10. I'm working on a MAN OF LA MANCHA up in MA, but am SO looking forward to taking another pop at SERVANT. We haven't quite hit our GOFUNDME goal, but we got very close--and we have now paid the guarantee on our venue in Edinburgh, and have just about everything we need to take care of our production and promotional needs (with a little help from our Scottish friends across the pond). We can't thank those of you that have contributed to effort enough. As we hit our rehearsal period, those of you that earned "incentives" will see some of those start to roll out. Of course, those of you that were Contribution Warriors will have to wait for some of those items until we return from Edinburgh. Thank you again. We're within a month from putting this lovely little gem back on its feet. Cheers!

We're getting close to Brush-Up rehearsals (July 10). T-minus July 29 and counting. All is proceeding on point. Our friends at MGA Academy are doing some of the pre-operation legwork for us and locating some of our props and lining up a carpenter who can take care of the minimal scenic needs we have. And, finally, we need to have posters and flyers printed up. We're still about $1200 short of our GoFundMe goal. Please encourage friends and family to visit us!
Cheers.
Michael
