But time ticks on: just 36 days left... 35... 34... Christmas was wonderful and here comes the 2011! In just 8 days the Mirror Mates project on Kickstarter has been 39% funded!
Yes, we're doing well!! ...but we need your help! Kickstarter is an all or nothing proposition and if we don't reach our $4000.00 goal by February 1st we will not receive any of the money pledged. No credit cards will be charged and this form of the project will not go forward. Don't let that happen!
Please click on the widget below - read about the project, watch the video and donate! $1.00 will help! $15.00 be a big help! $115.00 will get you a pair of reserved seats and help an awful lot!
Tell your friends! Tell your friends' friends! Come to the event! It's going to be hilarious!
Be there! Tell folks that you helped launch the awesome "Mirror Mates: A Two Faced Farce" before anybody else knew about it! ~Who's brilliant now?
Wow! The very first living room reading of Mirror Mates went great! Everyone had fun and as a playwright I learned a lot about the piece. That's terrific! Now it's time to parlay that success into the next phase in the play's life. A more official announcement will be forth coming soon.... but this spring we will present a Staged Reading of this wonderfully entertaining farce for friends, relatives, industry and investors! (Potential and otherwise)
As we prepare for this reading - we will be rehearsing and workshopping the script! This involves - readings, editing, cleaning, polishing, sharpening and honing in on the jokes and through lines. Should be a great process!
Will keep you informed how it goes!
Many thanks to all who participated in the initial reading! What a great evening! Much Love, Bill
