Our musical 210 Amlent Avenue has been accepted into the 2015 New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF)! This means the show will have its first fully-staged production this July, complete with professional actors, costumes, sets, and everything else you’d expect to see when you attend a musical in New York City.
But we need your help to get there! NYMF will provide us with a theatre and technical framework, but beyond that we are acting as self-produced writers, so we need to raise the entire cost of the production before we start rehearsals. We want to bring this show to an incredible audience of industry professionals and musical theatre fans, and your tax-deductible donation will help us get there! No amount of support is too small.
We’ve been developing 210 Amlent Avenue for five years and the piece has grown and evolved so much in that time. The characters, story, and songs have really matured and being selected by NYMF tells us that the show is ready to be seen by a wider audience. This is the same festival that launched the lives of plays like Next to Normal and [title of show], and we want to take advantage of this extraordinary opportunity! Please consider making a donation and joining us on this adventure.
* donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law.
We’ve crunched the numbers and will need $45,000 total to mount this production. We are so excited to have this opportunity, and you can help us get there!
Through NYMF, we are able to accept tax-deductible donations for this project.
