have fourteen days to meet our goal of raising $3,000 toward Studio
301's production of RENT at UC Davis, and we are almost 75% of the
way funded! So many thanks go out to the 39 friends, family members,
colleagues, and even just well-wishers who have pledged $2,208 over
the past 46 days.
of the actors, designers, stage managers, producers, and directors
here at Studio 301 are getting ready to embark upon rehearsals, with
our first rehearsal on Sunday, April 1. We are looking forward to an
enjoyable and enlightening process that will culminate in our eight
performances, running from May 10 to May 20. And we are looking
forward to seeing you in the audience!
I'm sure you can see as well, we have also had our first publicity
photoshoot for RENT. A small taste of these great pictures can be
seen as our Kickstarter cover page, featuring Michael Roscoe as Roger
and Malia Abayon as Mimi. Very special thanks go out to
photographers Uyen Cao and Andrew Kam, and Studio 301 publicity
designer Stephanie Moore – as well as all the staff at Burgers and
Brew in Davis for being so kind and obliging in letting we theatre
folk take pictures in their restaurant.
these final two weeks of fundraising on Kickstarter, we wish to
encourage all of you to continue spreading the word to friends,
family, co-workers, and anyone else you know who may be interested in
supporting the arts in Davis. If we keep going at the rate we have
been, we should have no trouble in meeting our goal...but we can only
do it with your help!
you, and we'll see you at the show!
