For the past two years Marc Arthur has been developing a production of Peter and the Wolf that he’s thrilled to announce will soon be realized. He has brought together an amazing cast of mostly child actors and ballerinas, along with a production team that he’s honored to work with, and a beautiful 120 seat space in the lower east side in New York where the piece will be produced this March. Based on Prokofiev’s original musical concept, in which characters are represented by musical instruments, this performance uses painting to represent characters. Actors will paint live as they perform a theatrical version of the story.
Producing a show like this is costly and Marc has no outside funding… he’s relying on individual donations to cover all of the budget. So we’d like to point your attention to the fundraiser running to make the dream possible on Indygogo to raise $10,000 over the next 2 months. All donations are tax-deductible through Marc’s partnership with Fractured Atlas. And the best part is that, if you donate, you’ll get some delightful rewards in return! So please make a donation today – any amount helps.
This is your chance to be part of the process. Spread the word.
