As many of you know, running a theater company takes mad cash. We here at No Redunds love the cash and as I mentioned briefly in the past, we are planning on having a fundraiser later on this spring. Many things have yet to be decided on this, but I recruited some promising fundraising talent from the other non-profit I work for: Big Brothers Big Sisters (Volunteer Today! Or suffer the CONSEQUENCES…) and we had a little brainstorming session tonight. Among other things we discussed the broader theme of the fundraiser and how perhaps it should be help launch the KUNG FU HAMLET: WORLD DOMINATION TOUR!
Matt and Chowie and I had talked about centering the fundraiser around Great Moments in Kung Fu Theatre History, so that’s kind of what we’re going for as far as the structure of entertainment for the thing. Right now everything’s in the clay phase, but we might be putting a call out for submissions to the cause at some point in the future. Matt’s got dibs on Kung Fu Waiting For Godot, and I might be tackling Kung Fu Death of a Salesman, but we’re certainly going to want to work some of the Greeks in there, and maybe we’ll do one or two Shakespearifications (Chowie is thinking Shakespearified Dude, Where’s my Car?), you know, for the kids. Anyway, that’s what’s up.
Unfortunately, because of the meeting I missed the damn Daily Show, and I even set my VCR to record it, but for some reason it decided not to, now I will have to kill it.
