Hello I am Sonia...The Girl Behind The Curtain. I create, produce, market, and sell.....SHOWS.

Welcome to my first Kickstarter!

I opened my production company last year in New York.  I filmed my first TV pilot- and opened my first stage show. Today- I am raising capital required for my theater production- TRUFFLES: Jazz, Murder & Dinner Theater!

  • Book By:  T. Adamson
  • Music & Lyrics By:  Jenni Lark
  • Created & Produced By: Sonia Carrion (The Girl Behind The Curtain)

In Italy's world-renown restaurant, Ciacco's, the wealthy Donati family is preparing to auction their treasured two-pound truffle and pull themselves out of financial crisis. However, festivities abruptly grind to a halt when the truffle goes missing and the restaurant's owner, Dante Donati, is found dead. Chef Bruno just wants his guests to have a good time. Carlo the waiter just wants to elope with Donati's daughter, Isabella. And the Donati's just want to solve the mystery before someone else falls victim to murder. Or at least before dessert. With their truffle empire at stake......you will never guess WHO DONE IT!  Dress in your finest, and take a seat at Chef Bruno's high-end, five star Restaurant.  Enjoy a 3-course meal or a lovely brunch, and help solve the mystery!

TRUFFLES: Jazz, Murder & Dinner Theater...

...is a stage show I created 2 years ago.  The Truffle World is quite unique and extraordinary.  A truffle is a mushroom delicacy, that can add up to $80 for a small shaving on pasta dishes in New York, and can garner up to $400k in high-end auctions around the world!  I was drawn to this insane concept, and dove head first into the world of truffle dealing, to create this concept of "food, love and murder" into a great show.

I have the pleasure of working with an amazing playwright and composer. Our cast and team are phenomenal, and because of our persistence, perseverance, and determination, we are opening for a SECOND run this fall.  We we welcome your support. 

KICKSTARTER GOAL:  $5,000 !

HOPING TO RAISE: ......Double That!  

(But why you ask!?)  My start-up costs are listed below.  

********************************

MARKETING- $5k 

PRE-PROD CREW- $2k 

REHEARSAL PAY- $2k 

COSTUMES & PROPS- $1k

********************************

TRUFFLES- opened last year- and we had an explosive 4 month run.  It was thrilling, exciting, and a huge learning experience myself and my company.  We opened in multiple venues- hoping to find a home, and overcome the many hurdles involved in theater production. However, through all the turmoil......we were provided a "killer" good time- and kept our audiences coming.  Now- TRUFFLES: Jazz, Murder and Dinner Theater is re-opening for the fall!  And we AIM to please!  Your support will assist in the success of Truffles for it's 2016 run!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

Risks and challenges

Truffles Dinner Theater will be launching very soon, and these funds will help us get there smoothly. Once our show dates are set, we are obligated to fulfill them with our ticket holders and venues. However, there are always challenges when it comes to live entertainment, and we will address them as they arise.

We appreciate your support. Gifts and rewards will be mailed out by the end of the year. For major contributors, we are prepared to plan and produce your private show! This will require coordination of dates, locations and menu, to ensure that you have an amazing murder mystery experience! Thank you for your support. Cheers! ----Sonia
