Only Two Weeks Left!!

As some of you may or may not be aware, Oddfellows Playhouse is in the midst of its very first kickstarter campaign.  We only have two weeks left to raise money to help make this the highest quality production for the young actors.  Your support of William Shakespeare’s Land of the Dead:  True and Accurate Account of the Zombie Plague of 1599 goes directly to help highschool students have access to a professionally produced show and spark their creativity for the rest of their lives.

Kickstarter is all or nothing.  If we cannot secure at least $3,500 by Tuesday, October 30 then we will not be able to get the funding.  WE NEED YOUR HELP TO KEEP RAISING FUNDS!!
So far we have had 26 awesome backers help us to raise $1,175!!

Your donations would help us to support the cast of students (in grades 9-12) in the show.  Oddfellows provides scholarships to students49% of our students last year—and funding allows us to continue to give kids access to the arts.  

Check out this video of the cast rehearsing.  These are the very kids you will be helping!

Your donations also go to support all the individual artists and professionals who make this show possible!  Oddfellows uses local artists on all their productions and Land of the Dead.  This full-scale production, with dozens of zombies included!- will have professional  costumers, fight coordinators, directors, makeup artists, set designers, sound designers, and more!  We also couldn't make this happen without them OR YOU.

We had 12 days left and $2,325 left to raise.  

By making a contribution to this campaign, you are helping to make the difference in our community, with our artists, and our young actor’s lives.  You will help us to bring this show to audiences from around the state.   Click here to donate and check out our video.

And help us to spread the word on twitter (OddfellowsPlay, hashtag #SaveShakespeare) and on Facebook (
