help bring a new musical to the stage!

I write to you from snowy Michigan, with thoughts of comfort and joy and a partridge in a pear tree—and a humble plea for your help. In brief:

* I’ve written a musical!
* It’s a collaboration with award-winning playwright Tanya Shaffer, along with many other brilliant, hard-working people in theater.
* Now we’re raising funds for the premiere production, and you can help get us there. (Psst: there are rewards involved, too.)

We’ve decided to raise $80,000 to produce a four-to-six week run of The Fourth Messenger in early 2013. We hosted our first fundraiser in July and raised $35,000 in contributions, bringing us almost halfway to our goal.

Here’s where you come in: we’re raising the rest through an online IndieGoGo campaign. A generous donor has promised to match each contribution dollar-for-dollar up to $20,000. That means if you give $10, we get $20, if you give $50, we get $100, and onward and upward! The donor will deposit the matching grant every time we pass a $1000 benchmark, so you can watch online as our tally grows. Because we’re fiscally sponsored, your gifts are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. And of course, we’ve got perks that we’ll send you for various levels of contribution.

It doesn’t take a village to bring a musical to life—more like a small nation. Thank you for being a part of ours.
