CFPC has been invited by Villa La Pietra in Florence, Italy to bring our production of The Merchant of Venice over for a performance as a part of their Season, a summer celebration of creative collaboration and exploration. The Season has featured artists like Jon Batiste & The Stay Human Band, Judi Dench, André Holland, Tarrell Alvin McCraney, Kathleen Turner, and many, many more. Now, CFPC will join their ranks. There’s just one small thing: We need to raise the money to get there!
The villa has generously offered to house the cast of Merchant, made up of Domenica Feraud, Madeline Mahoney, Constantine Malahias, and Peter Molesworth. All we have to cover is plane tickets, props, and costumes (approximately $3000, all things totaled).
We are offering close friends and past supporters of CFPC the opportunity to make donations towards these costs at a variety of levels, including:
Angel $500+ This level gets you a gift from Italy, an invitation to a dress rehearsal in NY, a postcard from Florence, your name listed on CFPC's Website & program, and access to our Travel Blog.
Gold $250-$499 This level gets you an invitation to a dress rehearsal in NY, a postcard from Florence, your name listed on CFPC's website & program, and access to our Travel Blog.
Silver $100-249 This level gets you a postcard from Florence, your name listed on CFPC's Website & program, and access to our Travel Blog.
Bronze $1-$99 This level gets you a shout out on Facebook & access to our Travel Blog.
No matter how much you choose to give, know that all of us at CFPC are honored to include you in our travels as we seek to fulfill our mission: energizing the immediate cultural landscape through nurturing meaningful artistic collaborations. We are thrilled to share this opportunity with you, and will continue to post updates, behind the scenes info, and pictures of our process on our instagram (@cueforpassion).
Thanks for your help!
