GREAT NEWS: our concert version of CAMP WANATACHI was such a wild success that we're on to our next installment: we've been offered a two week run of the full length production of CAMP WANATACHI in New York City in early 2011! The concert was incredibly successful in getting the word out about the show, raising awareness about Mercurial Productions gallery show "Jesus In Our Lives," and refining the music and story of CAMP WANATACHI. We are so excited that we are ready to take the show to the next level.
We've been so fortunate to have received support from our 60 generous backers so far. If we can make our goal to reach $10,000 by June 30th, going into production for our full length version of CAMP WANATACHI will become a reality!
*All donations made after June 21st that include a reward for TICKETS to the show or INVITATIONS to the INVITED DRESS will be made applicable for our production of CAMP WANATACHI in 2011! As well as MEET AND GREETS, CDs and so on... READ ON FOR MORE ABOUT CAMP WANATACHI!
CAMP WANATACHI is a spirit-soaked hormone-charged new musical comedy about two 13 year old girls who fall in love at Christian summer camp. Produced by the star of Disney - ABC's Legend of the Seeker, Bridget Regan, and Ian Pai, co-founder of Blue Man Group and Musical Director of Fischerspooner, this genre-mashing musical tells the story of two young girls, the sexy bulimic Titi, and Jana, earnest and religious. Surrounded by an ensemble of eccentric characters, including a suicidal goth, a manic cheerleader, and a foxy counselor from the boys side, Titi and Jana learn that they can experience the love of Jesus through one another.
Fresh off its critically acclaimed run in the 2009 NY Fringe Festival, CAMP WANATACHI’s upcoming Benefit Concerts + Dance Party will star its creator, Natalie Weiss (of Unicornicopia), and feature a book co-written by Bekah Brunstetter (two-time winner of the New York Innovative Theater Award for best new play), the sex-glitch beats of Machinedrum, a live orchestra, floor-to-ceiling projection walls and a summer camp themed after party.
On June 3rd and 4th, a concert version of CAMP WANATACHI will be performed to raise awareness and funds for its sister project, a gallery show entitled "Jesus In Our Lives." Spearheaded by the experimental arts and advocacy group Mercurial Productions, "Jesus In Our Lives" utilizes photographic, video, performance and interactive components that give a voice to young lesbians and promote frank discussion about the intersection of homosexuality and Christianity at Ramiken Crucible Gallery in 2010.
We have assembled an outstanding team of musicians, technical crew, lighting, costume and sound designers, choreographer, casting director and director who have agreed to forgo payment for their contribution to the CAMP WANATACHI benefit concert. But we need your help to make the concert a reality. Your donations will help us with everything from renting the space, music equipment, costumes, printing and publicity materials and so on.
From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for your time, consideration and if possible, generosity.
