THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO HAS MADE THIS AN AMAZING WEEK FOR RADIOHOLE! We’ve met our goal in JUST ONE WEEK! You’ve inspired us! We’re shooting for the moon-pie!
$10,000 - A sous chef and maître d'hôtel
We can’t wait to have you for dinner but there’s a whole lot of slicing and dicing to do and reservations to wrangle. Reaching 10k will allow us to hire a sous chef to keep the kitchen cooking, and a maître d'hôtel to ensure everyone is seated in style.
$12,000 - More Shows! More Seats!
We'll expand our table from big to really big, adding more place settings and more shows to bring even more of you to the table!
NOW SERVING, the latest show from Radiohole, is a delicious mess, and we need your donation to make it good to the last drop. Join Emily Post aficionados for a four course exploration of the American Dinner Party in an intimate evening of formal dining. What will come to pass is surreal mayhem in true Radiohole tradition: an uproarious, bacchanalian, feast.
We will be performing NOW SERVING at The Collapsable Hole in January and We urgently need your help to raise critical funds RIGHT NOW!
Donations from individuals are THE SINGLE MOST important funding source for us - since this money comes from people who appreciate what we do and have no agenda for how we spend the money, it gives us the freedom to be wildly experimental and sincerely authentic.
PLEASE MAKE A DONATION TODAY and help us make this dinner party possible!
A LITTLE HISTORY:
In early 2018, we started to discuss what to do for our 15th show and our 20th Anniversary. It was the dead of winter, the results of the November elections had begun to sink in and things felt… well, a little depressing. None of us really wanted to do much more than take refuge in the company of good friends, eat and drink. And that, in a nutshell, is how NOW SERVING, our latest show came into being.
NOW SERVING is a way for us to fulfill a desire to bring things home - our Radiohole home. It’s a way to invite both friends and strangers in for an intimate experience that is lush and tactile with careful attention to detail.
NOW SERVING is dinner theater but gleefully twisted as only Radiohole can do; it’s a formal dinner party and a bacchanal, a lesson in the rituals of etiquette a la Emily Post and a big, beautiful gooey mess.
Seven audience members will join us at the dinner table for a ritualistic four course "dinner" in an intimate atmosphere while 15 more enjoy hors d’ oeuvres, cocktails and a birds-eye view of the evenings proceedings from the gallery seating above.
We began developing NOW SERVING in the winter of 2018 culminating in two "work-in-progress" performance parties. Since then we've been polishing our silver, sharpening our knives and we've added an extra dash of misandry to the menu. With your generous support we'll be able to bring it all together in a spectacularly theatrical evening of wining and dining.
Radiohole is an ensemble comprised of Erin Douglass, Eric Dyer, Maggie Hoffman and Amanda Bender. Together they create dangerous, irresponsible highly theatrical performance art from cultural and physical trash. Because, in today’s world, that is the only responsible thing to do. www.Radiohole.com
Risks and challenges
As many of you know, Radiohole is a small, truly DIY company. Everything we do - writing the shows, designing and building sets, performing, administration, getting the audience beer before the show, and mopping up after is done by us. And we like it that way. We think that is an important part of what makes us who we are and the work we do unique. In a world where the imperative is growth, we actually strive to stay small. But funding isn't easy for a small company. We don't have a corporate name on our theater or the names of our wealthy patrons on the seats. So, our biggest challenge is to stay small and keep making the big (at heart) shows we make. To do that, we depend on folks like you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
