WE DID IT!!!
May 18, 2017
Hi! I'm Brad Baron! And I wrote a play called Last Ditch Playlist!
I'm touring the play to Washington DC, NYC and, you guessed it, Philly. This is a campaign to assist in not only making Last Ditch Playlist at the 2017 FringeArts Festival feasible, but to also make it as great as it can possibly be.
Donations to my Last Ditch Playlist campaign also directly support the FringeA-Thon event on May 20th in Philly...so your donation is supporting two causes in one!
WHAT IS LAST DITCH PLAYLIST?
Simply put, it's a new play! What's it about? Well...
How do you put back together a broken heart? Climb inside Aaron’s head where all his memories are shuffled like songs in a playlist. Dance through these memories as he reflects on his rocky romance with Wes and searches for the right words to say. Told in a series of non-chronological vignettes that scan memories both real and invented, Last Ditch Playlist is a modern mixtape eulogizing love lost and found.
WHAT IS FRINGEA-THON?
FringeA-Thon is an epic outdoor, 12-hour dance-party-marathon supporting FringeArts as well as the cultural community in Philadelphia. FringeArts presents world-class, contemporary performing arts that challenge convention and inspire new ways of thinking.
Raise money for the arts community, then dance your “art” out at FringeA-thon which includes an exciting line-up of DJs, themed dance hours, pop-up dance performances, dance competitions, and a coordinated dance finale by all of the fundraising participants. Dancing 12 hours is not required, but we challenge you to try!
John Jarboe, artistic director of The Bearded Ladies Cabaret, host and curator of Get Pegged Cabaret, and general spectacle-maker will be the MC for the evening, coaching dancers through the entire 12 hours.
Melanie Cotton, local choreographer and dancer will be leading the step-by-step, communal group dance finale.
12pm-12am Blue Cross RiverRink at Penn’s Landing
HOW DOES IT BENEFIT THE ARTS COMMUNITY?
FringeA-thon offers a unique opportunity for local arts organizations, individual artists and other non-profits to become beneficiary partners. By participating in FringeA-Thon, beneficiary partners will dance to raise funds for FringeArts as well as their own organization or special projects.
Participating in FringeA-Thon as a beneficiary partner allows non-profit organizations and individual artists to spotlight special initiatives or projects using FringeA-Thon as a fundraising vehicle. FringeA-Thon will provide an online fundraising platform and a great 12-hour event to market your project or organization.
Beneficiary partners will create a team and recruit dancers to fundraise for their cause. All partners will receive a 75% split of all proceeds raised by their team (including the $25 registration fee). It’s a low impact way to raise additional funds while supporting the cultural sector of the city.
