RELAX! ALICE is an original Spookfish Theatre Company production inspired by Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
Spookfish Theatre Company needs your help!
Our recent project "RELAX! ALICE" was just announced as the New York Times headlining show for the Midtown International Theater Festival going on this summer in NYC. Our show, which enjoyed a successful workshop performance this past fall, will be premiering professionally at the June Havoc Theater with performances held over a span of three weeks beginning this July.
This is where you come in.
Spookfish Theatre Company is a group of young, independent theatre artists who consistently self-produce quality artwork that has gained notoriety in the downtown New York theatre scene. We have been able to produce such works thanks to the donations and support from our family members, friends, colleagues, fellow theatre-lovers and the like. Any donation is graciously accepted and wildly appreciated, and would contribute to a number of costly production aspects involved in creating and presenting a successful play.
All donations will go towards funding everything from costumes, set pieces, and props, to paying our actors and designers, renting rehearsal space, creating postcards and programs, et cetera.
Please help us reach our $7,000 goal! For more information about the project and how contribution will help, CLICK BELOW!
