“It’s the times that make the monster… But a wolf can change the times.”
When a horror literary agent gets laid-off, he latches onto a mysterious werewolf script and discovers he has more in common with the werewolves of history than he could have ever dreamed in this bloodthirsty new rock musical about the Hollywood underworld, the 2008 financial crisis and the Corporate Strategies of Vlad the Impaler. (WARNING: this musical ROCKS)
We just want to break even. Since we are charging a mere $16 per ticket (which is a GREAT deal to audiences) our safe estimated sales projection is $5500 which leaves us to raise the $7000 to cover our estimated budget of 12,500. We can't do it without YOUR help!
We are only setting our Kickstarter Goal at $5,500 in hopes of breaking goal before we open on Friday the 13th in June. The sooner we break goal the sooner we can redeem the backer rewards.
This project is ambitious with a capital A - in fact, it's our most challenging production yet. We have brought in a new choreographer (Michelle LaVon), rented out a luxurious theater (the Lillian Theatre) and have expanded our cast to 11 people all of whom need to be paid. EQUIPMENT: we need at least 10 wireless head-mics so the singers can be heard over the four piece rock band and a sound engineer to mastermind the whole operation. To further our costs, we need to PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE in order to fill our 99 seat houses which means online ads, print ads, and promotional materials - all of which raise the budget.

Risks and challenges
The benefit of this campaign is that it will prevent us from losing thousands. We are, however, prepared to put on the show anyway, should we fail to meet our Kickstarter goals. If we do reach our goal, there always exists the potential setback that we may fill less than the 40% house we projected, but even in that worse case scenario, there is no risk for the investors to lose promised rewards. If we reach our goals, our backers get their prizes no matter what.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
