Halfway There!

There are 8 days left in our Hatchfund campaign to raise money for “Let the Dog See the Rabbit”. We’ve already raised over $4,000 and need $2,000 more to reach our main goal of $6,000!

If you’re interested in donating, consider doing so this Saturday, the 25th. Hatchfund will be matching all donations dollar-for-dollar that day up to $225. PLUS we’ll be honoring your donations at the next perk level. Donors at the $25 level will receive the $50 perk (the secret recipe to our signature LRS cocktail) and donors at the $100 level will not only receive two complimentary tickets but they will also receive the $250 level incentive: an invitation to an exclusive post-show reception with the LRS co-directors and cast of “Let the Dog See the Rabbit”.

We hope to see you at the show, May 13-21!

Support LRS!

On Wednesday of this month we launched a fundraising campaign on Hatchfund, the artists-only funding platform. We are seeking to raise $9,000 to close our funding gap for LET THE DOG SEE THE RABBIT. It’s an ambitious figure for an ambitious piece of theatre: we have a cast of 13 actor/dancer/creators, a 9-person production team (all 22 are from Philly!), a stunning performance space, and the gumption to pull it off.

Will you help us? Tax-deductible donations can be made on the Hatchfund page. Please consider sharing our campaign on Facebook or Twitter.

Thank you so much for your help. We look forward to sharing the final product with you in May!

Rehearsals Have Begun!

Today was the first rehearsal for LET THE DOG SEE THE RABBIT.

We’ve been workshopping this piece for over a year now (using the working title WILD) and have begun our final development period before the premiere! We have gathered together an exciting team of 13 Philadelphia actor-creators and an amazing 6-person production/design crew.

The piece is an exploration of “looking at looking at” animals. We agree with Levi-Strauss when he opined “animals are good to think,” but now we want to know why? What is it about animals that make them an endlessly fascinating subject? Today’s rehearsal involved embodying rabbits (not so easy for those in the cast over 6 foot), groups moving in flocks, and exploring all the nooks and crannies of the Sanctuary space where we will be performing.

Rehearsal updates will be posted here, but check our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts for pictures!
