Update #3

WE DID IT, thanks to YOU!!!

Comment

We did it, thanks to YOU ALL!  Wow, we're humbled and blown away by all of this.  We're drenched in gratitude, soaked to the core.  THANK YOU!!

We're starting to distribute posters and postcards, send out press releases, and we're trying to stop long enough to absorb the moment...bowled over with this outpouring of backing for the show.

Many people have been asking if they may still back The Origin(s) Project on Kickstarter now that we've met our goal. Yes, of course!  We have 9 DAYS REMAINING so feel free to keep spreading the word! We are discussing how to use the additional funds to share the show with a wider audience. We're now looking into creating professionally filmed DVDs for distribution among educators, social workers, adoptees abroad, adoptive families, etc., streaming the plays online, publishing the scripts, etc. The additional funding will go towards costs of music rights, editing, and distribution. You all AMAZE US!!! THANK YOU!

Look for these Remount postercards around town (gorgeously designed by Heewon Lee, brilliantly photographed by Charissa Uemura).  If you would like a batch to distribute (especially to students, Asian Americans, adoptees & adoptive families, and to outlying areas of Minnesota and Wisconsin), please let us know :
