About this project
The Dawn of Quixote: Chapter the First has been invited to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland! Two solid weeks of shows, running from August 8th-22nd, are already booked and listed in the official festival program... now we simply need to GET to SCOTLAND!
Written and directed by Juli Crockett and starring Shaughn Buchholz (Scrubs) as Quixote, Christopher Goodson (Cold Case) as Sancho, and Lisa Dee (Evangenitals, Killsonic) as Dulcinea, the Dawn of Quixote is a philosophical and musical exploration of the first chapter of Don Quixote. Live original score is performed by Los Angeles art-country band The Evangenitals featuring lead guitarist Henry Bermudez, drummer David Hurlin, fiddler Andrea Baker, bassist Matt Ticciati, accordion squeezer Ari DeSano, and singer/songwriter Juli Crockett.

Our show is being produced in part by California Institute of the Arts, who will be supplying us with a venue & promotional support in Edinburgh. We need to raise the majority of the funds ourselves to cover transportation, room, and board.
Our TOTAL fundraising goal is over $40,000... so donations above and beyond the $9999 goal are warmly welcomed and highly encouraged! WE WILL ONLY receive your donations IF we hit our $9999 minimum goal... so please help us get there!
The focus of this Kickstarter page is to raise funds for the transportation of our cast, the band, scenery/costumes, and instruments. Other expenses include, room and board while in Edinburgh, construction of scenery, props, and costumes, and covering the basic needs of 9 brave souls willing to take 3 weeks out of their lives to make ART in EDINBURGH!
We're offering a variety of exciting incentives for donors to the the Quixotic Cause... from CD's to Singing Telegrams, personal postcards to signed posters. Some super exciting packages include: drum or tabla lessons from David Hurlin, a spiritual counseling phone session with Lisa Dee, a moonlight horseback ride with the Quixote crew, and even having the Ordained Ministers Juli Crockett and Shaughn Buchholz performing your next wedding! All reward packages come with hand-written Thank You notes, stickers, and other surprise goodies!
Each donation of over $200 & up include ALL prizes of the $25-200 range and a shout-out in the liner notes of the new and much anticipated upcoming Evangenitals album! It's PRIZE-TASTIC!
We will be holding many fundraisers, concerts, and presentations of the play & music in and around Los Angeles leading up to our departure for Edinburgh. All donors will get updates and invites to these events.
