THANK YOU for Visiting my FRAT HOUSE Crowdfunding Campaign! Please press PLAY (above) to WATCH THE VIDEO for this campaign!

I am Darryl Reuben Hall. As an Independent Playwright looking for a breakout season, this is my first production to go NATIONAL! I am so excited! My show, Darryl Reuben Hall's FRAT HOUSE, is making its National Premiere in the Atlanta Black Theatre Festival performing: Friday, October 4 at 10:00 p.m. and Saturday, October 5 at 2:00 p.m.

I CAN'T DO THIS ALONE! This is enormous pressure but I'm looking forward to it... along with your help. Together, this will be quite a journey! I am grateful to call you friend. So to you and the constant support of 'older' friends (those who've known me since in diapers (lol)), I give a huge THANK YOU and much LOVE. Especially to Mom and Dad!

My works are my voice. I write because it's my purpose. I write because it is my vision. I hope that people everywhere will find my works creative and enlightening. Having performed on Broadway and Off-Broadway to Film and TV to National and International Tours, I hope to be an entertaining Blessing!

NOW, ON WITH THE SHOW! Having played cities in Florida, FRAT HOUSE will feature celebrities T’ Keyah Crystal Keymah (In Living Color, That’s So Raven, and Cosby), Tony Award winner Melba Moore, and Broadway performer Darryl Reuben Hall... (Hey, I know that guy)!

SYNOPSIS: Thomas, the son of a Pastor, leaves home to attend college and joins a fraternity against his father’s advice. Filled with high –kickin’ ‘Steppin’, soul –shakin’ gospel music, and a powerful message... Darryl Reuben Hall’s FRAT HOUSE will make you laugh, cry, and shake your groove thang! This family-oriented Gospel comedy celebrates the richness and traditions of colleges and universities everywhere!

FUNDING PURPOSE: Truth be told, I truly need at least $30,000! If you're unable to support financially, your Prayers and Blessings are just as rewarding! Funds collected will be used for: Production Costs, Set Design, Materials, and Construction; Marketing, Transportation, Administration, Costumes, Housing in ATL (Traveling from FL), Props, Stipends, and more. 

TAX-DEDUCTIBLE: Your contribution is tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. If I DO NOT reach my goal of $15,000, I will NOT receive any of the money raised. So, that makes it...

ALL OR NOTHING!

If I do not reach my goal, credit cards will not be charged either. Additionally, credit cards will be charged on the last day of the Kickstarter if the campaign reaches its goal.

FRAT HOUSE will also feature some members of the Divine Nine fraternities and sororities: Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, and Iota Phi Theta Fraternity.

REWARDS/PERKS You ONLY receive perks listed at the funding level of your contribution! The higher the pledge, the more perks you receive. Perks include but not limited to: A tax-deduction, a Sincere 'Thank you', Name listed in the Frat House Hall of Fame at www.darrylreubenhall.biz and Stage Aurora Hall of Fame on Facebook, T-shirts, Souvenir Programs, Posters, 2014 Frat House 'Greek' Calendar of cast members/fraternity or sorority, Complimentary ticket(s) to Stage Aurora productions located in Jacksonville, FL; and more. 

CRITICS LOVE 'FRAT HOUSE'! Impressively choreographed, energetic, and lots of fun. And the concluding gospel finale that followed brought down the house' -says Entertaining U/ Alun Montgomery

Risks and challenges

MY TRUE GOAL IS $30,000! Additionally, as Founder of Stage Aurora Theatrical Company (a 501c3 theatrical non-profit), this is a challenge but I will continue to call on our supporters, audience, and conduct further fundraisers until my goals are successfully achieved.
