One Month to Go and PEP Needs Your Help!

In addition to the substantial individual contributions PEP has received thus far, we were fortunate to receive two foundation grants, from the SHEA Collaborative and the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation. However, we find ourselves with a budget shortfall of $5,000 and just four weeks left to go before Our American Ann Sisters premieres at Live Arts on December 4th. We are so proud of the progress we’ve made:

  • We have raised 95% of the $63,270 budget we established to take us through the premiere at Live Arts in December.
  • We now have a finished script we’re working with.
  • We redesigned our website and have been documenting our process on a blog with multimedia samples.
  • We completed the two playwriting workshops with the community.
  • We are underway with our collaboration with Shannon Worrell, a local musician who’s created original music, designers Mark Schuyler, Jenny McNee, John Scheidler, Thadd McQuade, and filmmaker Billy Hunt.
  • We will be conducting a FREE workshop for performers interested in our process at Live Arts November 17-19.

We believe our work is setting an important precedent in our community. We believe Charlottesville is capable of supporting a groundbreaking professional company of theatre artists, but we need the investment of community members such as as yourself to pull this off. Can you help us reach our goal? Any amount is appreciated!

  1. Nice post. I learn something toheugr on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content material from other writers and practice a little one thing from their store. I’d choose to make use of some with the content on my weblog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a hyperlink on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Grade A stuff. I’m unquestionably in your debt.

  3. This is so funny because I have a teen and then three ages 4 and under and the similarities are endless. No one picks up after themselves and my teen has rediscovered the benefits of being helpless.

  4. ah sim? propoe-me portanto ficar com menos 4h de tempo livre por dia para andar a chuva e ao vento a espera de transportes que funcionam mal, basicamente porque um visionario qualquer acha que isso é que é vida?

  5. – Jenn…. Fridays are usually tutu night here at my home. Tutus and wine, actually. Thanks for the compliments! I am a fan of that new light fixture in your bathroom as well…. we would likely make a good decorating team!

  6. The more I read, the closer I come to the conclusion that we are not all Americans.Sorry O-man, there is a black America, white America, brown America, yellow America, red America, etc. And each, excluding white America, are fighting for scraps or jockeying for the position of ‘model minority.’ It’s sickening. There is no UNITED States of America.

  7. Sake / Zapatero-Rajoy o Rajoy-Zapatero, se trata de la misma moneda con sus dos caras. Amigos, queremos ir a mejor o empeorar. Psoe y PP, deben descansar en el banquillo, si queremos garna el partido que ralemente importa. La Libertad.

  8. I agree with Frank. The constitution allows me to keep and bear arms. They can also have my guns when they pry them from my cold dead hands. What we really need to do is replace ALL the senators and representatives in congress and keep doing so until they realize exactly who it is they work for.Congress works for We, the people! They have forgotten this.
