About this project

Hi, I’m Jeff Davis
My kids are actors in children’s theater. My wife and I volunteer quite a bit with kids. We think it’s important to nurture the development of the skills that theater helps to enhance.
I want to produce a play that will allow these actors to really express themselves. I’ve begun working on a script that tells a story through different styles of dance, because Dance is one of the purest forms of expression. It’s worthy of support.
It’s a story of fairies and wood sprites and creatures that will appeal to the actors as well as the audience.
I’ve assembled a team of people who know how to stage a show like this, and I’ve gathered the right young actors, dancers and singers to bring such a show to life.
But, we need your help. We need to raise funds to do it right, to make it worthy of the efforts that these kids will put into it. Sets, costumes… it all takes money.
Please help.
There will be some cool stuff available for you when you contribute, so please donate. Together we can make this show happen.

We'll use the funds specifically to:

Buy materials to build the special sets we'll need to achieve the look and scale of the fairy world.

Buy materials to create the costumes. These will be unique. No off the shelf stuff here.

Acquire a few special pieces of lighting equipment.

Publicize and promote the show. (tentatively planned for 10/31/12)

Film and create the mini-doc and DVD of the performance.
