The Long (and Awesome) Road to Chicago

Philadelphia Improv group Deleted Scenes formed rather promptly at a New Years party rolling into 2010.  Six members strong they performed their first show on January 8th 2011,  in Quakertown, PA.  A lot's happened for the group since then.  They've participated in well over 25 performances in the past year, and really come to be great friends amongst themselves and their fans.

Feeling as though they had explored long-form improv as thoroughly as six students could, they began to adopt strange and unusual, sometimes taboo, practices in their act.  The most successful of these practices is the integration of puppetry.  Back in August, the members of Deleted Scenes descended upon several Arts and Crafts stores in the Greater Philadelphia area and went off in their own direction and made puppets that they felt reflected their personalities.  The results were uncanny.

College Improv Tournament

This is where we must humbly ask for your assistance.  In October of 2011, we participated in and won the Regional round for the Chicago Improv Festival's College Improv Tournament in the Mid-Atlantic Region.  This places us among 15 of the best improv teams in the entire country, and we have the chance to prove our love for improv at the Nationals in Chicago on March 10th, 2011.  Improv doesn't pay much and we six men don't have the kind of income to afford air-fare (and a hotel) so we've elected to drive ourselves in a minivan nearly halfway across America, from Philadelphia to Chicago, puppets in tow. We've shopped around for hotels, and have a complex itinerary for when we get there.  The biggest item on our minds is simply travel expenses to and from Chicago such as gas and hotel rates. This looks to be an excellent and exciting adventure, and we'd love all the support we can get. As you can see, we'll reward you handsomely and creatively for your generosity.  Thank you in advance for your kindness and support! We'd be lost without you.

Your friends,

Deleted Scenes
