Bring new and established work to the stage! Buzz22 Chicago, a theatre company, is mounting two productions and needs your help.
What we’re doing.
While we don’t always agree on how we’re going to raise our money, we’re all in agreement of exactly what we’re going to do with it. We’re putting up two shows simultaneously in Chicago called Quake by Melanie Marnich and Residue by Joel Sinensky.
We’ve already saved a lot on costs such as space and production rights by deciding to put two shows up at the same time in the same theatre. That said, the costs of a putting up theatre productions run high, and we just need a little more to help with the last of production costs such as rehearsal space rental, artist stipends, and costumes.
Why we’re doing it.
Quake, by Melanie Marnich, immediately captivated the attention of Buzz22 Chicago due to its unique structure and female lead character. We were also excited by the challenge of producing a play with a beautiful combination of contemporary realism and a fantastical journey.
Residue is a new play by up-and-coming playwright Joel Sinensky. Buzz22 Chicago is excited to not only have the opportunity to produce new work but also to produce the work of a friend and former classmate.
Together, both plays present the idea of young people on a journey to find their place in the world. As young artists, these are stories that we can relate to, want to explore, and are excited to tell.
Why you should support us.
Because each donation brings us one step closer to not only putting up the productions themselves, but also putting up the best productions possible. The better the production, the more we as a company are able to honor the hard work of the playwrights, the actors and the designers involved with each play.
