For the past 8 years, each summer BBP has produced a full-scale musical completely free for everyone to attend. We started in our backyard in Maple Grove, but as we grew a larger yard was needed! So we are now doing shows in a backyard in neighboring Dayton, MN. It’s a great yard for our outdoor productions with a sloping audience seating area, lots of space for parking, and a large flat ‘stage’ area.
This year we are doing Seussical The Musical !!
Which brings me to our dilemma, the stage area is just bare dirt, no grass or other ground cover. You can imagine how it affects our actors (and the costumes) if it rains. And if it doesn’t rain, the dust raised by the cast can often obscure the audience view of the show! Also, while the audience area slopes up, there is a level spot in the middle that prevents some from seeing the actors on the ground.
So, we need to build an actual stage, to get the actors off the dirt, and help give a better viewing experience for the whole audience.
So that's where you come in! If you can help with a donation of any amount, we can build a stage and Get This Show Off The Ground!
Risks and challenges
We have our stage design ready to go and a crew of workers lined up including some Eagle Scout candidates! Should we require permits for the stage, we will have to work with the city to get those approved by JulyLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
