It’s crunch time for Prizery all-or-nothing fund drive

SoVaNow.com / May 05, 2014
Only three days remain in The Prizery’s campaign to raise $25,000 for the Summer Theatre season — an effort that is playing out on Kickstarter.com, the popular crowd-based, all-or-nothing funding website for creative ventures.

To qualify for the money, The Prizery must hit its $25,000 goal; if it falls short, contributor pledges are voided. Through Sunday, The Prizery had reached 58 percent of its target — raising $14,720 from 68 donors.

The Prizery has until midnight Wednesday to meet its goal.

The campaign, “I Dreamed A Dream Project,” is intended to raise funds to support the considerable costs of staging “Les Miserables,” the stage version of the Victor Hugo novel that has been adapted several times for film. The most recent movie version yielded an Oscar for Anne Hathaway for Best Supporting Actress.

The local stage version will debut July 11 with eight shows during the month. Also on tap with the 2014 Summer Theatre Celebration at The Prizery: “Hairspray,” with 13 shows and a June 19 debut.

To contribute to the “I Have A Dream Project,” visit http://www.prizery.com and follow the links to the Kickstarter campaign, or call The Prizery at 434-572-8339.

I think our little theater needs to hold off throwing such a large production. Raise funds over the next few years and then do it. I know the county need the culture little theater brings but our pocketbooks can not support such things at this time !
