THE STORY:

You've supported us every step of the way. You were there for our impromptu plays in the backyard. You were there for there for the grade school pageants and the high school musicals. You were there for the experimental undergrad productions, and you celebrated with us when we got into grad school. Thank you.

Because of you, we're now ready to enter the professional world.

This fall we will enter our final year of training in the Brown/Trinity MFA program in Providence. Over the past two years we have grown as individual artists and as a company. Together we have produced six full length shows and dozens of original works.  We've toured productions of Hamlet and Cymbeline to high schools and community arts centers all over Rhode Island. And next spring, we'll get the chance to share our work with agents, managers, and casting directors in New York and L.A at the Brown/Trinity Rep MFA Class of 2016 Showcase.

The showcase is an evening of programming featuring all members of the class of 2016 in selected scenes, and it is our introduction to the professional world. The connections that we make through Showcase will launch our careers. But we can't make showcase happen without you.

Brown/Trinity covers the theatre rental and staff on location, but students are responsible for the costs of travel, housing, and meals during the trip, as well as headshots and wardrobe. Airfare and lodging alone can be hundreds of dollars. We're aiming to raise $20,000 which will be divided equally among the fourteen actors to help off-set the expense of the trip.

Any amount you can give will help us reach our goal.* We're sending letters and e-mails out to over a thousand friends and family members. Your gift of $10, $25, or $100 dollars may seem small, but that is all it takes for us to accomplish our goal. Let me be clear, large gifts are welcome! Very large gifts are very welcome. But know that anything you can give is truly appreciated.

Thank you for your continued support!

*This is not a fundraiser for Trinity Rep Theatre or Brown University.  Donations will go to help pay for expenses of MFA students, and therefore they are not tax deductible.
