    Azure-Crowned Hummingbird Level: OK, whoa! That's a big jump! Yep, we know, but our rewards take on a different character now too. In addition to everything offered at the $75 level, you have the opportunity to either meet privately with Victor and Kevin after any one performance you attend of The Mapmaker's Opera at the Festival or, if you can't get there, we'll do the next best thing and reach out to you via Skype (or other comparable service). Finally, we'll also send you, framed, one page of Kevin's own hand-written score of the show (he's old-fashioned like that and still uses pencil and paper, go figure!) Of course you've got complimentary Gold Level privileges in the MMO Club to look forward to as well. Remember, the MMO Club becomes accessible on the day we reach our campaign target!

    Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher Level: The first of two pledges at this level. Did you know that in addition to being a great screenwriter, lyricist and bookwriter, Victor is also an Artist? What about an original painting on a theme of The Mapmaker's Opera for your wall, and whilst you are looking at your new acquisition, sit and read a bound-copy of the Libretto from the Musical. And, yes, you guessed it, this is a single opportunity pledge. Will you hate yourself if you miss out?

    Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher (2) Level: Darn, Kevin can't paint. In fact he can't even draw a stick family, but he can write music. So, he's agreed to give one lucky person a soft-cover bound version of the entire original piano/vocal score to The Mapmaker's Opera. Please note: this original version of The Mapmaker's Opera musical will not ever be published, so if you want this, only you, one other person (further down in the pledge list) and Kevin will have the three complete original scores.

    Blue-Headed Vireo Level: Like the increasingly rare Blue-headed Vireo, at this level of pledge, we're offering a couple of very special things for the literary-minded amongst you (and especially if you have small children or grandchildren). To begin, you will receive • a first-edition, rare, and out-of-print, 1967 hardback copy of the children's storybook, 'Timmy's Christmas Surprise' by the famous Australian children's author, Mary D. Daly, (who, by the way, is Kevin's grandmother). What we love about this reward is that a certain four-year old little boy whose name is (wait for it...) 'Kevie', helps his paralysed friend, Timmy, find the joy of Christmas. The novel is notably illustrated by some of Australia's most famous oil-painting and watercolour artists • Kevin will compose for you a personal piece of music based on the letters of your first or surname as you prefer, mount the music in an A3/Tabloid-size frame and post it anywhere in the world. Limited to 7 people only (because of very limited copies of the book!)

    OK, so this breaks the previous pattern. For this level of pledge, you either have to be attending the New York Music Theatre Festival (NYMF) or live in Melbourne, Australia. If this is you, then why not consider a private dinner with Kevin and the show's leading lady on us? One important thing to note: we do need to limit this opportunity to only two pledges (otherwise Kevin will get fat!) We'll cater for all food preferences no problem. Of course, you do also get complimentary Gold Level privileges in the MMO Club at The Mapmaker's Opera web site.
