Why should I help you guys reach $13,000?
Every new dollar that comes in, helping us reach $13,000, directly helps to make our show better. How?
- A publicist would help us immensely. We are good at promoting our show, but we're no publicist. A publicist means critics attending performances and getting reviews in newspapers and magazines. Ergo, we help build our company's name as well as fill the theater with audience members. (Getting a publicist was something we always thought not possible. Now, having a strong marketing and publicity budget is within our reach!)
- Having money to hire a stage manager. (A stage manager is the glue that holds a production together. Our stage manager will be working their a** off for 7 weeks, and we'd rather not resort to slave labor.)

So, What's This Show About?
King’s River is an original full-length play which tells the intertwining stories of individuals in the town of King's River, a fictional town in the American South. We watch the trials and tribulations of a jazz trio struggling to define themselves, in both their own lives and in their art. We watch the rise of a young politician, as he begins to brave the turbulent waters of modern American politics. We see the loneliness and yearning of an eager young Marine, soon to deployed, searching for a connection of any kind. And we watch the tension seethe between a father and son, as they vie for the same woman. These are just some of the stories of King's River. They have never been told before and can only be shared with your help.

How Does This Kickstarter Thing Work?
We have 30 days to reach our goal of $6,500. By pledging money to our show, you will receive rewards based on how much you can give. Kickstarter is all-or-nothing, meaning if we do not reach our goal within that 30 day period, we do not receive any funding. If we go over our goal, it only helps to make our show better!
Where's The Money Going?
- $3,600 goes directly toward renting our performance space for 3 weeks
- $140 goes to mandatory rehearsal insurance
