This one’s from James :
So you know how in my bio I’m all like “I want to produce plays!” (in so many words)? Well, I’m doing it!
Our production is called “MONUMENT,” a piece about an architect tasked with building one final and lasting structure for all of humanity. It is a devised piece presented by the Drexel Players, Drexel’s student theatre organization, and directed by Cara Blouin.
This piece marks a step forward for the Drexel Players. We have never self-produced a show of this size. Also, this is our first piece in the Philadelphia Fringe Festival. We are extremely excited about this opportunity, but we are still looking for contributions from our friends, family, colleagues and peers.
So with that, I’d like to invite you to be a part of the creation of this production by contributing to our IndieGoGo campaign and taking advantage of our perks, some of which include:
- A quality framed print from our press photos!
- A personalized 5 minute video thank you card from members of the cast and crew!
- Personalized weekly video updates for 5 weeks leading up to the show!
- Even the chance name one of the characters in the piece!
To learn more about our project and how to contribute, please visit our IndieGoGo page HERE.
I’ll be updating on the blog about our progress in the near future. It’s a really exciting time for us and I can’t wait for the piece to get rolling.
MONUMENT runs Sept. 13 +14 @7pm, 15 @1pm and 6pm, and 16 @1pm. The Rotunda is located at 40th and Walnut, Philadelphia. Tickets will be available online through TicketLeap by mid-July.
