About this project
Hello, we are a group of college students who major in different focuses in theatre and the arts. The most difficult part of attempting to make it in the theatre world is gaining notice for your talents. We want to put on bare: A Pop Opera so that as students we may gain this notice in the theatre world before we graduate and to put what we have learned to use. What makes this production unique is the fact that it does not fall under any specific college program. This means that any student that is willing and able to audition for this production will have the opportunity to get noticed in the theatre world. Everything will be student run, from sets, costumes, props, acting, directing etc. -- every facet of this production showcases new talent.
bare: A Pop Opera is the story of lovers and roommates, Peter and Jason, as their world falls apart during their senior year at St. Cecilia's Catholic Boarding School. Dealing with religion, homophobia, drug use, teen pregnancy, as well as bullying, bare deals with social issues that resonate with all of us. It is an enriching experience from start to finish.
We need help to make bare come to fruition. $9,700 covers the rights, rehearsal space, performance space, and materials that will all go in to making this incredible opportunity for aspiring artists become a reality. In the end, you could be funding more than just a project, but somebody's future.

Risks and challenges
We acknowledge the difficulties and problems that can be faced when putting on any production in theatre. However, the people that are involved with this project have an incredible passion for this production and are driven fully to see this come to completion. The biggest issue we could come to face would be not having enough money to see the project through. We have a rehearsal space lined up and our performance space will be rented once we have funds. Your contribution will be the biggest thing you could do to help us make our dreams true.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
