GOAL #2- If we can reach $5,000 by the end of the campaign, we will be able to allocate some funds to help make the set better than ever! Thank you all so much for your generosity. We are so thankful and thrilled that our first goal was a success!
The Importance of Being Earnest is a story with an opulent world of the play. Mauckingbird, known for its gender bent adaptations of classic tales wants to tell the story right. The characters in the play dress smartly, with style and elegance. Oscar Wilde penned a brilliant commentary on class and social status, and, in terms of physical production, The Importance of Being Earnest is Mauckingbird's biggest endeavor to date. The story is a seminal work that fits directly into the company's mission and Mauckingbird has been looking forward to presenting it.
The money raised through Kickstarter will be used exclusively to help nationally recognized Mauckingbird Resident Designer Marie Anne Chiment provide the appropriate beautiful costume creations and physical settings to aid in the telling of Wilde's classic tale of love and mistaken identity.
Risks and challenges
Mauckingbird has enjoyed a loyal and diverse audience since its inception in 2008. The company has always supported itself primarily through tickets sales and generous personal donations. The Importance of Being Earnest is the closing production of our sixth season of critically acclaimed theatre. To our knowledge, we are the only theatre company in the nation looking at classic texts specifically through a gay lens. We have every intention of continuing our efforts as Philadelphia's premiere LGBT theater company.
In order to keep our ticket prices affordable (No ticket has ever been over $25!) we need your support to ensure the highest production values and quality in all areas.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
