features the exploits of 5 summer camp counselors as they embark on their first taste of adulthood. Be a part of our journey to FringeNYC 2010!
Thank you so much for visiting our Kickstarter page and for supporting this project!
As many of you may know, BUNKED!: A New Musical (written by Bradford Proctor and Alaina Kunin, directed by Seth Sikes) been accepted into the 2010 New York International Fringe Festival! We are beyond excited for the opportunity to produce the show that we've all worked so hard on for the past year, and we are currently in the process of fundraising to make this possible.
Focusing on five summer camp counselors each embarking on their own journeys of self-discovery, BUNKED! gets to the heart of the angst and awkwardness of not knowing where you belong and how to live up to the expectations that are being thrust upon you. As the end of summer approaches for these five teenagers, hearts are broken and mended, life-long friendships are cemented, and decisions are made that will impact the counselors' lives forever.
BUNKED! is a project worth fighting for. There's no lack of passion or perseverance on our part, but the truth is that self-producing a musical is expensive. We would like to raise at least $3000 to help defray the costs of actors, sets, costumes, or body mics etc., and that Kickstarter is the place where we can convey our excitement and convince people that BUNKED! is worth supporting.
