You are invited to help us make history by presenting our revolutionary production of the musical "1776" with an all female cast.
A special thanks to those who have pledged to support our Kickstarter campaign and helped us achieve our funding goal of $750. Our campaign will end on June 17 and we are able to accept additional pledges until that date. Please share this page with others you feel would be interested in helping us to make our dream a reality. All are invited to help us make history as we present the TONY Award winning Broadway musical "1776" with a "revolutionary" all female cast as a staged concert at the Tower Theatre in Bend, Oregon. Your Kickstarter pledge will help to offset the costs to mount this production. Our cast will be accompanied by a full orchestra and include some of the best singers in Central Oregon. These women will share the words of such men as John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson; men who risked being tried as traitors advocating their desire for a Declaration of Independence from England during the Second Continental Congress. Our concert is being presented to support the efforts of The Tower Theatre Foundation that is the heart of the performing arts scene in Central Oregon, offering a variety of live performances as well as educational outreach programs through area schools and community organizations. Our video was produced by Front Row Video Productions For more information on "1776" In Concert, please visit the Shore Thing Productions web site.

While our licensing arrangement with the rights holders of "1776" excludes the ability for either of these, we will be documenting the production with still photos which will be posted on our Facebook page as well as web site after the final performance on July 1.
Four things. The first is having loved "1776" since the first time I saw it forty years ago on tour. The second is having a great admiration for the incredible number of talented women in Central Oregon who are a part of our performing arts community. The third is being frustrated with the apparent lack of ability of our current U.S. Congress to effectively negotiate, compromise and accomplish much of anything. The fourth was reading this article on the PLAYBILL web site two years ago: http://www.playbill.com/news/article/141331-Tony-Winning-Musical-1776-Will-Get-All-Female-Staging-in-Kansas-City The rest, as they say, is history.
Reserved seat tickets for "1776" In Concert are $20.00 each and can be purchased through the Tower Theater web site: www.towertheatre.org.
Although we have reached our funding goal, our Kickstarter campaign will continue until June 17th and we are able to accept additional pledges until that date.
