A message from our Zombies.

Hello out there, all of you undead friends,

Since our last update we have had 11 new individuals and families give to our Oddfellows Shakespeare Kickstarter!  Thank you to everyone who has given so far—however, it isn’t over yet!

We have 8 days left to our campaign and need EVERYONE’S help to spread the word, to encourage your friends to give (we love eating meeting new people) and for you to give.  Remember this is an all or nothing challenge!

Our production is 2 ½ weeks from opening night and we continue to want to give the kids the best experience possible.  What does that mean?  It means saturating their creativity with all the tools to help them perform, to give them confidence when the go on stage, and to help them in their lives.  Theater just isn’t about reciting lines on a stage—theater is about learning to understand the world through new eyes; igniting that spark to create; learning to work with a  group towards a final goal; and, most importantly, learning about yourself at an age when everything can seem confusing and mysterious.
We have raised $1,530 so far and need to get to $3,500.

Check out this awesome video from two of our young actors:

Your donations go to directly support students just like them-- some on scholarship, some looking for a place to express themselves, to learn and grow, and for some, a place where they can be happy and feel comfortable.
