This blog is all about financially supporting taking my 1st musical, The Unwitting Wife, to debut next month at the Tiberias International Theater Festival. If you’d like to save time and just throw money, that’s absolutely fine with me. Just click this link: http://tinyurl.com/rebeccatotiberias Make sure to type in ‘REBECCA’ in the last box. BLESSINGS AND THANKS!!!
The work that needs to be done before I take my first musical, The Unwitting Wife, to debut at the Tiberias International Theater Festival is immense. I have often likened this experience to a giant, animated, Monty Pythonesque foot that has landed smack dab in the middle of my life. Taking a musical, especially your first, from concept to international festivals in five months is not recommended by anyone, least of all me. But we must listen to the Universe…and the Universe is being so very persistent!! There have been several points along this journey that I was about to give it all up. Each time, something has happened in the eleventh hour to save the day. I call this phenomenon Dramatic Hypertension. It’s a little crazy making, but it’s also fascinating and fun.
I am a woman of Faith and I believe that the Universe will continue to provide. But since you can’t know what I don’t tell you, I have to publicly ask once more for financial support. The Unwitting Wife is a story of love and friendship between women. The three characters are lesbian, bisexual and straight. Already, simply based on the stories surrounding this show, I have been approached by dozens of people with their personal stories of ‘coming out’. I have made great friends and I know I am a great friend to these people who haven’t had a lot of people take the time to listen and love. I am so thrilled by the potential of this show and its capacity to touch people with its matter of fact representation of the many relationships that exist in the world.
The next two weeks are all about getting the cast album recorded and promotional material designed and manufactured. Oddly, every person I’m working with insists on trading money for their services. Daily, new expenses are identified. I am far from my financial goal. It’s time for me to put it very bluntly:
If I have touched your life in any positive way and you can spare a dollar, a thousand or any amount in between, PLEASE click on the following link and donate. In return, I will take this show and perform in front of as many people as I can, in hopes that it will entertain, educate and inspire. I believe we look for ourselves in the world. I know this because of the countless times I’ve looked for myself in vain. SUPPORT ART! ART SAVES LIVES!
Ok, I’m out of boldface and calm again. Oh crap!! I forgot the link!! Here: http://tinyurl.com/rebeccatotiberias Just make sure to type in ‘REBECCA’ in the last box. To all of you, please know that my appreciation of you is unconditional. I just have to pay the ever increasing bills.
All the best,
