Dear Backers,

Thank you!  We just completed our Pry House campaign and raised more than we asked for.  I am honored by your support. If you're in the neighborhood on October 20, please come to Keedysville, MD for "House...Headquarters...Hospital...Home." 

Thank you.

Kitty

ps - if you pledged an amount that gets you a reward, it'll be on its way soon!


Update #2

"House...Headquarters...Hospital...Home"

Comment

Dear Backers,

Thank you again for your support of this project.  It does appear that we have met our goal, but of course, if there's anybody out there who still wants to contribute, there is time!

The performance is one month out.  I've spent a few really lovely and peaceful mornings at Pry House this week, and I'll be there again this afternoon and tomorrow afternoon.  Today, dancer Sean Miller is joining the cast.  I'm very excited to have a man in this work, and so looking forward to his artistry.  Tomorrow, Emily, Mariel, and Amy will finish up learning the barn dance section of this piece.  We will also -- weather permitting -- figure out what exactly we're doing with the approximately 200 yards of black ribbon remaining!  The final transitions are about to be built, our music is coming to completion, and the postcard is out (see the image below)!

Please, please, please come to the performance!  Wherever you are, come on over to Keedysville, MD on October 20.  Bring a friend!  

Thank you!

Kitty

Update #1

Pry House project update

Comment

Hey Backers,

We're halfway through our campaign and just past halfway towards meeting our goal.  If just 43 people pledge $10 each in the next 16 days, we'll meet our match!  Please spread the word so this campaign succeeds!

We rehearsed yesterday at the Shepherdstown Train Station (photo attached of dancers Amy Hatzis, Mariel Procter, and Emily Tharp).  Pry House is in the midst of activities commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Antietam.  I'll be heading over there today to see the site in full action: living historians, soap making, the barn actually set up as a hospital.  When we are there rehearsing, the site is very quiet. I usually feel the remnants of what happened there in 1862, the residue, the dichotomy between a site that is so inherently beautiful and the horrors that it also contained.  If you're in the area, and don't mind detouring around and through Sharpsburg Heritage Days to get out to Pry House, check it out!

By the way, we will be having a man join the cast!  Welcome Sean Miller!

Thanks again for your support!
