Not everyone was born wanting to have kids.  For me, it was a struggle to get to a point where I was ready.  I wrote a one-woman show about my experience, called "Unexpectedly Expecting."  It's a comedic romp through my misgivings about having kids after having spent 15 years of my adult life pretty dead set against it.

To bring my show to life, I’m reaching out to my network to help raise funds, which will help cover a portion of my overall expenses, including:

  • Theatre Space for the performances July 11-13 & 18-20
  • Rehearsal Space
  • Director
  • Lighting Technician/Sound Technician
  • Stage Manager
  • Photographer for the publicity materials
  • Make-up artist for the photo shoot
  • Graphic Designer for the postcards
  • Printer for the postcards
  • Videographer to film the show and make DVDs available
  • Box Office Attendant/House Manager
  • A few props
  • Liability Insurance for the theatre

If you are unable to contribute through a monetary donation, but would like to volunteer your talents or your time to help bring my show to life, please feel free to contact me separately by June 1st at angie@angielight.com. Your support in any way is greatly appreciated!

Dates: July 11-13 and 18-20 at 8pm.  (Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays for two weeks)

Location: Elephant Stages Studio Theatre 6322 Santa Monica Boulevard (enter at 1076 Lillian Way) Los Angeles, CA 90038

*Please note: this show is intended for audiences ages 16 and up.*

**If you make a pledge of $25 or more and are planning to attend the show, you will be contacted once the campaign is funded to reserve your ticket on a specific date.**

***Limited seating available for each show!***

Risks and challenges

Since this is a one-woman show, overall production coordination should be relatively low-risk with a minimally-sized stage crew. My biggest challenge will be physical – I’m setting an ambitious goal to pull off a performance at 8 months pregnant. Even so, it’s been a two year goal for me and I'm determined to make it happen! I hope my life story will entertain and speak to a lot of people!

I have budgeted a total of $3,500 in fixed hard costs for this performance and planned for a 10% contingency to cover unknown expenses along the way, for a total project budget of $3,850. I am asking my support community to help me realize $3,000 of my budget, with the remainder funded through personal savings.
