The Final Countdown! 32 hours left! Add-ons and Livestream!

Posted by Team StarKid (Creator)

Not much time left now! 

First off, we want to once again say thank you. This Kickstarter has had TREMENDOUS momentum behind it since day one, and that’s all you guys! You’re making this show happen and giving StarKid the means it needs to make another show! We hope you enjoy it :)

For the last four hours of the campaign on Friday, April 15, we’ll be broadcasting a livestream from our YouTube channel. That’s 12pm-4pm on Friday, April 15th! Join us! We’ll try to have as many cast members as have been announced!


We’ve gotten a lot of request for more take home items like t-shirts and posters, so that’s exactly what we’re giving you with these ADD-ON REWARDS!

$12 - Firebringer Kickstarter Poster - For BACKERS ONLY! We will not sell this online or at the summer season so get it here! This poster confirms that you helped Start the Fire!

$30 - Firebringer Kickstarter T-Shirt - Also for BACKERS ONLY! It will probably say something like “We Started the Fire” unless you guys can think of a better phrase which is ALSO a pop song reference.

$10 - Starship Requiem Script - If your backer number is 1227 or lower, you’re already receiving this! If not, you have the chance to get it now!

$15 - Starship Requiem Audio Reading - If your backer number is 1227 or lower, you’re already receiving this! If not, you have the chance to get it now!

$10 - A Very Potter Christmas Script - If your backer number is 2544 or lower, you’re already receiving this! If not, you have the chance to get it now!

$15 - A Very Potter Christmas Audio Recording - If your backer number is 2544 or lower, you’re already receiving this! If not, you have the chance to get it now!

How Add-Ons Work:

  • Go to Manage Your Pledge 
  • Increase your pledge in the Pledge Amount box by the total $ amount of your desired add-ons 
  •  After the campaign ends, you'll get a backer survey to fill out 
  • In that survey you'll specify which add-ons you chose 

REMINDER: If an add-on could bump your pledge into a higher reward tier, be sure not to change your reward selection to that tier or we'll send you everything in that higher reward tier instead of your add-ons! 

Let's finish strong! 

Can't wait to see what happens in this last day+change!  Don't forget! We've changed the rules and you can unlock a cast member every $1000 pledged! Four are unlocked now, SEVEN TO GO!  

Weeoooo! Fire Time!
