Hello from We Happy Few land. The past month has been a crazy whirlwind of meetings, decision-making, and overall planning. We have a few very special announcements to make!
- Kickstarter helped us to kick ass. Fact: we made our goal and then some (special thanks go out to our 54 backers)! Because we didn’t ask for the entire budget for THE TEMPEST on Kickstarter, we are still accepting donations via the yellow “donate” button on the top right of our webpage. We are in the home stretch in terms of being prepared to stage this show, but fundraising the last little bit means that we’ll be able to have great costumes, a safe environment for actors on stage, and quality set pieces. If you’re interested in donating, see item #2!
- We’re super cool. That’s the truth. But you know what we’re not? We Happy Few is not a 501(c)3 non-profit as identified by the government. In order to offer benefits like tax-deductible receipts to donors, as of the middle of March we are part of the Fractured Atlas community! They’re super cool too, which makes a great partnership. This allows us more time to focus on making great theatre, which is the coolest.
- We have a lot of things in the works. In fact, because you are wonderful and want to read about us, we’ll reveal to you now that we’ll be performing ROMEO AND JULIET at the Capital Fringe Festival this year. But more on that later…
Last year, the inaugural WHF year, was a great success but we’re not resting on our laurels. Oh boy, do we ever have plans. What does that mean for you, dear audience? Plan to attend our upcoming show, follow us on social media (which I’m sure you’re already doing), and watch for announcements about all things WHF.
