CTown presents a workshop presentation of HELP ME TO MAKE IT as part of ICE FACTORY 2013.
Dear Friends and Family,
We return to Kickstarter this spring to request funds to cover the development costs of our current project HELP ME TO MAKE IT.
Last year CTown was awarded one of two slots in the inaugural Archive Alliance Residency, a new exciting partnership between The New Ohio Theatre and IRT Theater. The residency provides some rehearsal space support at IRT Theatre, a workshop production slot during their 2013 Ice Factory series and a space in the New Ohio’s Mainstage season in Spring 2014. This long-term, in-kind support enables us to fulfill our artistic vision. What it does not do, however, is provide any financial assistance to pay for our artist and collaborator’s time and any production materials necessary for our upcoming workshop production in The New Ohio’s Ice Factory this July 17th – 20th.
HELP ME TO MAKE IT weaves together stories about several generations struggling from inside the architecture of contemporary families. As questions arise about fidelity, sexuality, gender, and the myths created to help us comprehend it all, the characters try to make sense of themselves and of familial love. These stories hinge on how personal moments of everyday existence add up to lifetimes of monumental compassion, devastating betrayal, and inevitable transformation.
Here is the Ice Factory Workshop team:

As you can see we have once again been blessed to assemble an unbelievably talented team. The majority of the funds raised during this campaign will go to giving these artists everything they need to experiment with the fist full scale workshop of what we hope will become a new epic piece of theatre!
Heading into our 10th Anniversary season, we once again look to YOU, our CTown family, for your generous support!
(Geo, Boo, Jordan, TJ, Lee, and Amanda)
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Help Me To Make It is slated to perform in Ice Factory 2013 between July 17 and 20. The piece is cast and rehearsals will be underway when the project is fully funded. We have budgeted to cover all expenses that we are sure of and built contingencies to ensure that any unforeseen expenses can be covered. We have a strong network of industry contacts for assistance with unforeseen productions materials. If we loose an actor during the process to another job, we have a pool of 'frequent collaborators' (listed on our website) that will step in to assist with seeing this workshop production through to the final performance.
