HERE'S WHAT THE LETTER SAYS...

 

Dear ____________________,

 

As I’m sure you know I have been training for a career in musical theater most of my life! Well. Good news! I’m on my way as part of an exciting new musical, HUMANITY’S CHILD,  that will premiere off-Broadway next summer! Of course, I really hope you can be there to share this career-launching moment with me. Here’s everything you’ll need to know:

 

These are most challenging times, especially for those just starting out in the world or struggling to balance careers and family life. Many share deep concerns about a dissonant and dangerous future.  We are ten of those young women, all 20-something performers who use our art to affect social change and we have an extraordinary opportunity to do just that! Humanity’s Child: A Musical for Today is literally just that: “for today!” It emerges from real life and the experiences of young people, like us, as they march for their lives (#MarchForOurLives), and especially young women as we navigate the complex world of gender relations in the 21st century (#MeToo). We share a common concern for the future of all of “Humanity’s Cousins” in our generation, those that follow and those that have come before. In Humanity’s Child, we play ourselves! We speak for all who share our concerns and we offer a deceptively simple strategy: speak up for what you know is right and do it from a place of joy and optimism.


 

We respectfully request your kind assistance in getting us there. Your generous donations help pay for rehearsal space, transportation, advertising and marketing, and other essential things necessary to succeed.

We will be rehearsing and preparing over the next months in NYC  for mid-summer performances at the prestigious New York Theater Festival 2019, July 29, 31, and August 3rd, and then a series of regional events and shows in the fall.

Your tax deductible donation, in any amount, will help amplify our voice.

We would be honored to include YOUR NAME or Business in our NEW YORK PLAYBILL in whatever category is most appropriate for you. (Since we are all “Humanity’s Cousins,” we hope you will enjoy our “Family-based Donor Categories!)
