 You can sprinkle pixie dust on our Peter Pan performers and help their voices take flight to Never Land! As our theater company has grown, so have our venues. In order to tell their stories, our youth performers need to be heard. A wireless microphone system will give wings to our performer’s voices, allowing our audience to comfortably hear and better experience the magic of our stories.

We reached our original goal of $3,600 in just 2 weeks! With three weeks left, our new stretch goal is $5000 for 4 complete microphone systems to hear our performers.

For over 14 years, Poison Apple Productions has helped kids take flight—letting them experience the magic of live theater through stage performances, scriptwriting, and prop and costume design. We are a volunteer-driven, non-profit 501(c)3 organization and believe that theater should be accessible by anyone. No child or family is turned away due to financial challenge, and we provide scholarships to many of our youth performers who range in age from 3-18 years old.

“Think of a wonderful thought”- each of our youth performers on stage (sometimes 20+ at a time) with a wireless microphone! Our first Kickstarter will help purchase the transmitter, receiver, and microphones for Peter Pan, Captain Hook, Tinkerbell and their friends from Never Land!

We thank you for reading and for your considered support towards live theater!

Risks and challenges

After our project is funded, the challenge will be to continue to purchase more microphones for future productions, as we would like to acquire a total of 15 units over the next 5 years - that's over $18,000 invested in equipment! And to maintain compatible systems with our already purchased microphones, to ensure they are workable and up to date with current systems.
