UPDATE - To clarify, since the rewards can't be edited once some have been purchased - anyone who donates at or above the $10 amount will receive a "thank you" e-mail from Shane and their name will appear in the Plan 9 program. Even those who buy props and posters. Sorry for the confusion!
How It Began - from Shane Silman, director.
Years ago, while revisiting Ed Wood's undisputed masterpiece, 'Plan 9 From Outer Space', for the 19th time, it dawned on me that the backdrops and situations presented were uniformly simple enough that you could feasibly produce this story as a live action play. With all the hilariously bad dialogue, cheap sets, and terrible special effects intact.
Where will the money go? The main two, which have been completely hashed out at this time, are:
- $1200 to the venue for rental costs - this is our highest expenditure, and includes all costs associated with rehearsal space, etc., as well as actual performance space.
- $600 for promotional costs - printing, advertising, etc. This includes the cost of having the poster designed, and we want a beautiful poster so that your rewards are as awesome as possible.
The rest will go to prop design/prop purchasing, costuming, and stage design. The more we get, the better everything's going to look. If we can raise $3000 from this, we can put on a HELL of an amazing show. If not...well, we're probably going to have to put in a little of our own money to make it happen. We're determined to keep ticket prices incredibly reasonable - ten dollars - so the more we raise here, the more the actors can get paid.
So help us out! We're trying to create a new sort of theater experience here in Columbia, and we think it's going to be something incredible for everyone involved. And if there's a reward you'd like to see here that ISN'T included here, drop me (Nick) a message. I'll see what I can do to make it happen.
