The Boomerang Theatre Company has launched its annual “100 Hamiltons” campaign — three guesses what means, my peeps.
All right, I’ll just tell you.
It means they’re looking for 100 donations of $10 apiece in order to support their 2010-11 season.
All right, I’ll just tell you what that means, too.
If you have $10 (and I know that not everyone does in these tight-waddy times), you’re encouraged to open that wallet and follow the directions on the email below, courtesy of Boomerang artistic director Tim Errickson:
100 Hamiltons is our once-a-year, 10-day campaign to get 100 donations of $10 (one “Alexander Hamilton”) to assist in supporting our 2010 season. Each donation goes directly to funding our 2010 Rep season of Venus Observed, Uncle Vanya and Endless Summer Nights. It”s a great way to do a lot, by giving a little.
But wait, there”s more! This year, we are adding a little fuel to the 100 Hamiltons fire. Each $10 donation is a chance to win a pair of tickets to see one of the hottest shows on Broadway this fall…La Bete!
American playwright David Hirson’s rollicking 1991 play La Bete is a comic tour de force about Elomire (David Hyde Pierce), a high-minded classical dramatist who loves only the theater, and Valere (Mark Rylance), a lowbrow street clown who loves only himself. When the fickle princess (Joanna Lumley) decides she”s grown weary of Elomire’s royal theater troupe, he and Valere are left fighting for survival as art squares off with ego in a literary showdown for the ages. The production is directed by Matthew Warchus (Boeing-Boeing, God of Carnage, Art).
Want to increase your chances of winning? Donate another Hamilton! $20 gets you two chances, $50 gets you five, $1000 gets you a hundred…
The 100 HAMILTONS campaign only lasts until August 22, so please donate today…
In the coming weeks… In addition to continuing our 100 HAMILTONS campaign, we’ll be featuring a sneak peak at Venus Observed, behind the scenes pictures of rehearsal, video features of the shows, chats with the design team and more. In the meantime, best thing you can do is give generously and tax-deductibly. Thanks!
