"Starving Artist Productions exists to nourish audiences with delectable, world-class entertainment experiences utilizing only the finest regionally grown talent and resources."
So often we are content to use other cities and other cities' art as our barometer for success when we are graced right here in our backyard with world-class talent. In this case, the playwriting team of Duke Ernsberger and Virginia Cate, a mother and son duo (yep!), whose works have been staged throughout the country, but only one other time in their hometown. Now, help us bring their production DRACULA BITES to unlife for the first time in the Queen City!
Our campaign goal is only a starting point for the total costs associated with a stage production of this caliber. Here's a "big picture" look at what your total donations will cover during the fundraising period:
$5,000: entire cost of the cast and crew (including the director, stage manager, costumer, and lighting designer)
$7,500: all of the above, plus the costs of the material, design, and construction of the set as well as all the marketing associated with this performance
$10,000: all of the above, plus the space rental fees and the costumes/props
$12,500: all of the above, plus licensing fees, insurance, print material, and the Opening Night festivities
With your help, we can do this. Thanks for joining us on this journey!

Risks and challenges
As with any live production, we run the risk of not having an audience. :) But we're confident that, with the help of our backers, we'll be able to minimize the potential risk of low attendance and STILL create a fantastic production AND honor all of the rewards being offered.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
