What happens when an NYU freshman from Kansas moves in with a dysfunctional Italian-American family from Queens?

Hadley Smith arrives at NYU from Kansas and there's no dorm rooms left- so what happens?  That's the premise of "Perfectly Normel People" (sic), a comedy and coming-of-age story that opens with our present day protagonist in his 40’s, recounting his freshman year of college living with the lovable, but loud Normellino family from Queens, NY.  From there our audience is launched into a memory play that takes place in 1981.

Our show broke box office records at the 2012 Piccolo Spoleto Festival in Charleston, SC where one reviewer raved: "When a theatre presentation is funny and smart, fast-paced and wise, word spreads like wildfire, especially at Festival time. "Perfectly Normel People" has all those elements and more."

Now we need your help getting our play, cast, crew, set, props and costumes all the way up from Charleston to the Big Apple and the amazing New York International Fringe Festival, where the show will play Off-Broadway between August 9th and August 18th at the 248-seat Players Theatre in historic Greenwich Village.

Transporting, feeding and housing 15 people for that length of time, as well as all the costs of mounting an Off-Broadway production do not come cheap, so ANY monetary support you can lend would be sincerely appreciated (we do have some pretty cool rewards for those who donate $35 or more :+)

Ultimately, our dream is to get an EXTENDED Off-Broadway run of "Perfectly Normel People" and who knows from there? This is going to be an exciting and challenging adventure.  We hope you can be a part of it!
