This summer I will be presenting a new musical I wrote called The 27 Club for The Capital Fringe Festival. This is my first year participating in Fringe so I figured why not jump in head first! I have an amazing production team lined up and we are rolling right along with auditions coming up May 11. The most important things to me in this project are:

A. Presenting a well crafted and fun look at the lives of the rockstars who died at 27. The things that tie them together, what makes them unique, why we have been fascinated with this idea for decades, and the legacy each of these stars left behind.

B. Having a ton of fun building a project from the ground up with an amazing group of artists and friends.

C. Paying those artists for their time and effort.

That's where you come in! We will be covered in part by ticket sales, but that doesn't begin to tackle all the expenses associated with mounting a new production including: Fringe festival fees, marketing, rehearsal space, costumes, sets, lights, sound, and of course paying the artists. I am hoping to raise $3,000 to help offset some of these costs and present an amazing production this summer!

Thank you so much for your help. Every bit counts!

Here are the details for our show:
