Rehearsals have been in full swing for months now, and in just two and a half weeks, Long Beach will witness the world premiere of LOLPERA (OMG!WTF!). We've been honing our dance skills, stacking television sets to the ceiling, singing, and laughing...a lot.
And thanks to your incredible generosity, we just purchased two projectors and were able to rent enough lav mics for all of our principle actors.
So thanks. Again.
Below is a link to our Facebook event page, as well as a link to the LOLPERA page on The Garage Theatre's web site (where you can buy tickets to the show you helped create).
We're still planning the day and venue for our Caturday event, so expect your invitations soon!
And thanks again for helping us to make the dream of LOLPERA a very real...and very real soon...reality.
Hugs and Kittens,
Jessica, Ellen, and Andrew
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Your support has helped us to reach our fundraising goal with over ten days left until our deadline. We are blown away by your generosity and overwhelmed by your support for original, independent theatre.
With so many days left, we also wanted to let you know that if you happen to meet or talk to anyone who would like to give, you can let them know that all funds raised from here on out will go directly toward elevating and enhancing our production design, allowing some dreams we once thought impossible to become reality.
It's hard to believe that what started in a living room in Long Beach over two years ago and caught fire in a makeshift workshop staged on another play's set is about to have its world premiere in just over six weeks. Of course, there are still obstacles to overcome (blasting a rocket ship into space, training a live cat--you know, the usual), but backers like you have given us peace of mind in knowing that every word of Ellen and Andrew's brilliant work will be heard by our audience.
And for that, again, we thank you.
Thanks to the generous support of backers like you, LOLPERA is just about to reach our $2000 fundraising goal!
We've spent the last few weeks rehearsing the music, and on Monday, we'll go in to the theatre to begin blocking and choreography. Opening night seems far away, but we're having so much fun that time is flying, and we know that September 30th is just around the corner.
While we're busy making sure this show is as awesome as we know it can be (thanks again to your generous support), feel free to take a moment and check out this update on LOLPERA's progress that appeared last week in the LB Post.
Thanks again, kittehs, and we'll talk to you soon!
