This is a call to our fundraising campaign. We have 34 HOURS left with $2,900 to go. Read on and hopefully I can convey a smidgen of how important this is. I am only an actress ;)
You have your family. Then there’s your “family”. Then there’s your “faaaamily”.
In 2011 I found my “faaaaaaaaaamily” that has shown me there are no rules, no boundaries, no boxes, no limits. I have never felt sexier, dirtier, younger, lovelier, hornier, older, more desperate, more lonely, more charged, and more loved. In a single season they took me from lost to found, inside to outside, so scared to so hungry for more. We’re still here and I am so grateful/nervous: because realistically every show is a triumph and every show is a struggle.
To quote from an amazing/essential “faaaaaaaamily” member Kaitlin Huwe: “watch this video and if our mission resonates with you, or you’ve seen a show that you loved, or if you love me…please support this young budding company”
If it speaks to you or any part of you that WAS a theater person or any part of you that WILL BE a theater person or any part of you that is secretly DESPERATE to be in the actual presence of people in love / despair / rage / triumph / confusion / hope please donate. Please donate so you can laugh with 50+ other people, cry with 50 other people, gasp, guffaw, and stare wide eyed into a living breathing face that just might stare straight back in the desperate attempt to connect.
My mother is always racing against time to catch a performance before it leaves existence forever. THAT is something so incredibly special about theater. These people, these characters, situations, moments, emotions, expressions have a time limit and it is the present. They are here and they are gone but the impact of their existence resonates long after their passing. I can still remember the first time I cried in an audience, so touched by Emilia’s desperate cries at the death of Desdemona, knowing she has lost her best friend and feeling so guilty she couldn’t do more. These moments won’t happen unless they are supported into fruition, and we need help.
If you can help us in any way, no matter how big or small, hit the link below to donate. If you can’t donate but you might know someone who can please share this with them. It would mean so much to me personally, and to everyone involved with this ensemble.
And no matter what: My deepest, sincerest, jazzed out of my mind invitation to come and see a show and share this wonderful world with me because THAT is what it is all about.
Thank you for taking time to read this and check out our campaign.

"Make me a willow cabin at your gate,
And call upon my wallet within my jeans;
Write loyal cantons of contemned love
And sing them loud even in the dead of night;
Halloo your name to the reverberate hills
And make the babbling gossip of the air
Cry out ‘ILLYRIA!’ O, You should not rest
Between the elements of air and earth,
But you should totally donate to us!”
