Risks and challenges

Welcome to INAPPROPRIATE: The musical's kickstarter page! We are so happy to have you here, and so appreciative that you've taken the time to look at our project. We'll be putting on a workshop, full performances of the musical INAPPROPRIATE at Los Angeles' OdysseyTheater this November 2013.

We're trying to be conscious of any areas where we might face potential issues during our time setting up the Los Angeles INAPPROPRIATE workshop performances. There are always risks and challenges that come with any project, and we'd like to fill you in on what those might be...

________________________________________________________________________
A group fistfight on the production side? -- Not going to happen.
Michael Sottile, Ray Leeper, Scott Prisand, Jamie Bendell, Big Block Entertainment, and all of the people involved in INAPPROPRIATE have been getting along extremely well throughout what can often be a difficult phase of developing a show.

The script has a hole? -- We'll fill it!
Luckily we have the writer, Michael with us to think about a new line!

Will there be production delays? -- Nope, we're going for it! Dates are set! The show will go on at the Odyssey Theater!
We need your help for this workshop production to be the best it can be!

_________________________________________________________________________
Everyone on the INAPPROPRIATE team is committed to making all aspects of the show a success, including, this Kickstarter. We will do everything we can to get you your rewards on time, minimizing delays and expediting the process involved with certain rewards. For any of the rewards that mention receiving tickets to the show, those tickets will need to be claimed within the scheduled performance dates during November 2013. If you cannot claim your rewards during that time, we will absolutely work with you to see a future presentation of INAPPROPRIATE, though we cannot guarantee tickets after the fall performance dates. We also will look to schedule the rewards for the phone conversation with the producer, dance class with Ray Leeper, and dinner with the creative team, within the time frame of the INAPPROPRIATE fall performances. These will be guaranteed through late November 2013, and we will do our best to accommodate you for any date set after the end of November 2013.

We look forward to hearing what you think. Please don't hesitate to ask us any questions!
