March 4 is a pretty exciting day. Nerve wracking, marvelous, exciting, horrifying. Kind of like an avalanche. It’s beautiful from far away, but the closer it gets, the more you realize, ‘man, this thing is a huge.’ And then it hits you.
Now, for a while, March 4 meant the end of our Kickstarter. It still does, but that’s not all it means anymore.
Because as of two days ago, March 4 also meant my interview with the Mead Theatre Lab Program (aaaagh wahoo excitement blaarggh)
The long and short of it is, Jellyfish has a shot at performing at the Mead Theatre Lab’s space for a few weekends next fall, and in order to secure that spot, I have to have made it past round I and II. So. Very exciting. And a little bit scary…
Here’s the deal. Even if this project takes off at the Mead, I’m going to need $3k to finance it, most of which will go to actors and artists. So, if you want to see what the big deal is, help me get to $4000 raised on Kickstarter by Saturday at 5:oopm.
If you’ve already donated, thank you! You’re already helping. Tell your friends. Tell your families. Facebook it and twitter it. Pin our video, what have you. Because if we can get to $4000 by Saturday, I will make an openly viewable and comment-friendly google doc of the Immortal Jellyfish so you can all see just what is getting me so excited.
And $6k to raise. $4k to match our Kickstarter goal. I think we can do it. I think you can do it. I believe in you.
We’ve raised nearly $3.4k so far. That’s enough to fund A Bid to Save the World, and bolster Apotheosis, after online fees.
If we can match our Kickstarter goal, then Bid is funded, and both Apotheosis and Jellyfish get major boosts to their funding.
If we can meet our $10k goal in two weeks, then that’s $1k to Bid, $3k to apotheosis, and $3k to Jellyfish.
Our season will be fully funded by supporters like you. And most of that money will go right back to actors in the DC area.
So again, let’s look at $4k. For actors. For our season. For yourselves. Let’s do this.
“Oh god god it’s valentine’s day and I didn’t get myself or my significant other a gift!”
“Crap. It’s Valentine’s Day, and I don’t want to jog today off tomorrow. Because tomorrow is Friday. That’s like, weekly Valentine’s day to myself.”
Fear not! Avalanche Theatre Company may have JUST the solution you need. Like, 10 of them, for all budgets!
1) A Tweet about your loved one/ yourself.
Cost: $10. Twitter Immortality: Check.
2) A glitzy letter full of sequins!
Cost: $20. Sexy Letter to Self: Awesome.
3) A Handknit Scarf!
Cost: $50. Take that, February. However you pronounce yourself. My scarf is handknit by the Liz Hansen.
4) An abstract painting.
Cost: $50. Nothing says ‘I love you and/or myself’ like abstract art by Liz Hansen.
5) A thirty second video
Cost: $50. Except making a monkey dance for all posterity. Yours truly would be the monkey.
6) A digital image, done up by yours truly.
Cost: $50. I’m a very good artist.
7) A Poem!

Lookout, world! We’ve raised over 3000 dollars for Avalanche Theatre Company’s first full season, ‘What is Living Without…’
That’s $1000 per show! Thank you so much to everyone who has helped so far!
Most of our show budgets go to help pay out actors. What better way to say ‘happy Valentina’s day’ to an actor you know and love than by donating to a company that focuses on actors?
