The Cherryblossomplayers:LLC theatrical troupe is seeking monetary funds to complete their current (2013- 2014) season!

Setbacks, continuing revamps of the company, and royalty/ rental rights have hindered our budget of late. We, as a troupe, have negotiated a new contract to continue in our current rental space for another season: so consistency is good! But it also comes with regular, monthly bills. We've switched our big summer musical and need a stronger advanced budget. We desire some recess lighting/ footlights/ and spots that we can keep in-house rather than paying sometimes expensive rental and security fees for each production (3 main-stage and at least 3 fundraising concerts or events per season). And, hopefully, we plan to improve sight line visibility (one of our audience members' biggest concerns) by acquiring a foldaway, portable, metal stage valued at $1,800.

Our goal is to raise a roundabout $3,900 to both continue our season in the next 3 months' time and to retain a balance to start up next season! In retrospect, that goal is not too far-reaching. 39 people donating $100 each, for example, will make us our goal. Unlike most other North Jersey community theatre troupes, we are privately funded and most staff members are purely volunteer-based. We are self-sufficient, we are innovative, and we are not afraid to "roll-up our sleeves and get dirty" to get the job -- and the Art -- done as needed!

We do not hire off-Broadway set designers, we do not have a trust fund established that we refer to annually, and when most other troupes would temporarily fold due to insufficient funds, we have remained active for 9 years (the last 3 as an established LLC-small-business). We have still produced shows with only $10 left in our business checking account! We are dedicated and we are artistically fearless! Please, please consider joining our troupe environment and donating to us now.

A typical North Jersey theatre budget might run you as much as $10,000 per production. We run our shows on an average of $800 - $3,000 per production. Considerably less than any other privatized Arts troupe in the area! Our ticket prices are fair (the lowest in the county, even next to some public school drama clubs), and we've never in 9 years charged membership dues to performers. Your donations will be wisely spent -- not lining the pockets of a producer. Our Executive running board and staff ARE the producers..and the directors..and the actors..and the crew!

Join us!! Thank you so, so much in advance. Cherryblossomplayers:LLC/ 2013 - 2014 season! Good day...
