A benefit to Support Molly Daniels because cancer at Christmas sucks.

My name is Jacquie and I’ve been performing since I made my theatrical debut in the eponymous role of my Preschool’s production of Goldilock and the Three Bears—I’ve been dramatic, off stage and on, ever since. I started Dented Can Cabaret a couple of years back to produce my one woman cabaret, Lies My Mother Told Me.

My friend Molly is a strong, intelligent, funny, caring, kind, thoughtful, creative, vibrant, and beautiful young woman. She was diagnosed with Leukemia in September and just finished her second round of chemo.

Her friends rallied around her but felt like they wanted to do more beyond well wishes and beach days—like helping her family get out here from New Jersey more often, helping with some of her daily bills, and keeping her in chocolate pudding. The holidays are upon us and because Cancer at Christmas Sucks we here at Dented Can Cabaret decided to make our Christmas show, Holiday on the Rocks, a benefit to support Molly and help her get through her illness.

This show features three actors, 4 burlesque performers, and a show girl chorus bringing a Christmas Review that can be described as Carol Burnett and Dame Edna hosting a TV holiday special, complete with comedy, an audience participation drinking game, and your favorite holiday classics--on the rocks and with a twist.

Two other performances of Holiday on the Rocks will help absorb the cost of producing this show, but our main concern is the cost of the venue the night of the benefit and some of the equipment rental.

We’re setting the “minimum goal” pretty low so that we can receive what generosity we’re able to attract.

Thank you in advance!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The risks are that the show doesn't sell tickets, but I'm a one woman social media blitzkrieg with a proven track record of success.
My performers are all incredibly talented and professional--we know what we're doing and we do it well.
The risks are rather low, no matter what we'll have a show!
