Some stories are meant to be told. Some are meant to be sung. And some ... are meant to be DANCED.
“THE CATERPILLAR'S WINGS - A DREAM OF FLIGHT" will blend THE BEST of DANCE and LIVE THEATER to tell the heart-warming tale of the first caterpillar ever to fly.
Ever since I wrote and illustrated my CHILDREN'S BOOK, "The Caterpillar's Wings", I knew it was meant to be a DANCE / THEATER PIECE. The combination of CHARACTERS, COSTUMES, MUSIC and MOVEMENT can reach an AUDIENCE unlike any other ART FORM.
But DANCING BUGS?!?
Sure, why not? We've seen SWANS and NUTCRACKERS strut their stuff on the stage. BUGS and BUTTERFLIES are the next logical leap, or grande jeté, as the case might be.
But I'm a dreamer, not a dancer, so I've needed to recruit an extraordinary CHOREOGRAPHER and a TALENTED TROUPE of DANCERS and ACTORS to turn this dream show into a reality.
On top of that, I've need to bring in SET DESIGNERS, PROP MASTERS, COSTUME MAKERS, PUPPET BUILDERS and last but certainly not least an incredible COMPOSER to create all of the amazing sights and sounds for this enchanting show.
Yes, it takes A LOT of PEOPLE to make a caterpillar FLY... and that's where you come in, DEAR FRIENDS:
Our show needs PRODUCERS - those wonderful people who believe in the project and want to help get it off the ground with their dollars and sense.
Your contributions will enable us to CREATE THE SHOW, and RENT THE THEATER for our big WORLD PREMIERE PERFORMANCES in Winston-Salem, NC on APRIL 30th, 2011!
You will also be setting us up to take our show out ON THE ROAD in 2012 for our North American "Believe in Your Dreams" Tour - where we'll share the MUSIC, MOVEMENT and MESSAGE with a wider AUDIENCE, maybe even in a city near YOU!
Of course, even if you can't JOIN US for the show, YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS will HELP to BRING the ENCHANTING STORY and PERFORMANCE to YOU.
EVERYONE who donates will receive an ELECTRONIC VERSION of the ORIGINAL BOOK, for a little more you can receive the AUDIO BOOK, the CD of the show, and your very own AUTOGRAPHED COPY of the CHILDREN'S BOOK that started it all. From there on you can get the DVD of the live show, as well as ORIGINAL ARTWORK and a LIMITED EDITION COFFEE TABLE BOOK from the show that YOU helped to CREATE.
Do it for the GOODIES, or the GOODNESS you feel in your heart, or BOTH ... but goodness gracious, DONATE TODAY!
Please... :) Thanks a bunch,
Ross Mihalko and The Caterpillar's Wings Creative Collective
BELIEVE IN YOUR DREAMS... AND YOUR DREAMS WILL BELIEVE IN YOU!
