Risks and challenges

With a large cast of 20 actors, singers, dancers and musicians, we're not doing this to make money.
All the artists involved in this production will split whatever profits the production makes AFTER expenses have been covered.

We are all involved in this production because we love telling stories and we want to contribute our voice to Vancouver's artistic landscape.

We're counting on your generous support.
