12th NIGHTed Summer Festival Showcase 2016

On the 12th Day/Night of Christmas My Donors Give to Me...

The opportunity to stage another Summer Festival Showcase with 12th NIGHTed, a farce of epic proportions shot out of Shakespeare's confetti cannon of sexual confusion, double sets of twins, & families trying to stick or get back together

With your support, we can provide....12 Nights a'daying, Maria a'milking, 10 scenes a'stealing, 9 ninnies laughing, 8 actors acting, Toby a'belching, 6 schwanz a'schwimmin', ONE Golden Ring, 4 calling cards, 3 menschy men, 2 rubber gloves and Earnesto calling in on line 3.

So 'twil be Christmas in July if we make our $2,500 fundraising goal toward the stretch goal of $5,000, the total production budget. I'm asking you to adopt an actor for $200 to pay their travel stipend, or underwrite one of the set pieces [3 folding screens] for $100 each, or adopt the Promotions Budget of $300, or underwrite the rehearsal studio tech week rentals of $360, or adopt the audition expenses of $400, or make a $500 contribution & the Set Budget or Costume Budget can be your very own.  For this AEA Showcase, the major expenses are travel stipends & audition/rehearsal studio rentals accounting for more than 60% of the entire budget. Insurance premiums, costumes, set pieces, promotion, administrative & printing costs account for the rest. And since we will most certainly go beyond our funding goals like we did last year with our Hatchfund campaign for The LEARS, any additional donations will increase the amount of the actor's honorariums who are donating their talents.

Make your tax deductible donation now. Without your support, 12th NIGHTed might not be able to return to January 5, 1967, for the gay, mod, swinging days of the sixties & the madcap antics of people in love. Please visit our site & make your contribution to help bring 12th NIGHTed to big belly laughing life.

      Monday June 13th, 11pm with Don & Donna Lobacz adopting orphan Cesario Vitale (Alexandra Bonesho) with their $200 donation, we're only $76 shy of our first goal of $2,500 that guarantees release of all donated funds to the project. We'll then try to match our giving total of $3,205 for last year's The LEARS campaign, and then work on funding our entire production budget of $5,000. Only 17 days left until the end of the campaign on June 30th, but I think we can do it.

      12th NIGHTed Almost Reaches First Goal Rehearsals Starting Next Weekend + Meet Famiglia Member Jonathan Barker This week our Hatchfund crowd sourcing effort made strides toward its minimum goal. We're just $406 from our first goal of $2,500. When that mark is reached, all donated funds are guaranteed release to the project. Following up on that major goal, we'll continue on to double that effort and cover the entire production budget of $5,000. We need your support first in getting over the minimum goal hurdle by donating at least a portion of that $406. Take a look at the perks of participation and Make your Donation Now by Clicking on the Link http://www.hatchfund.org/project/12th_nighted_summer_festival_showcase  Notice that our greatest need is in funding the travel stipends for our actors & production team at $200 each. They donate their time & services and we give them a travel stipend for doing so. For $200, you can adopt an actor or production team member. You can even request a specific person for adoption. It is a show about 2 sets of orphans after all in our crazy extended Italian family at the Palazzo Earnrighto... Choose to adopt one of these famiglia members....
