PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN THIS YEAR'S MPF


WE ARE CASTING FUNDERS FOR THE MPF
Over the first 12 years of the Maine Playwrights Festival, we have presented over 100 short plays, and conducted full productions and staged readings of a number of full-length plays. Many of these scripts incubated at the MPF have been produced at other festivals across the country. THe MPF provides playwrights, actors and directors with the invaluable experience of bringing brand new plays to life, and audiences with the dynamic and exciting chance to be present at the birth of these theatrical pieces. Due to the size and scope of this event, we need to raise $3,000 to help support this year's edition and are looking for you to help keep the MPF firing on all cylinders.

Please visit our Indiegogo site and contribute to our campaign today - we have only 3 DAYS LEFT to raise these funds!

Your contribution toward our $3,000 goal helps make it possible for Acorn to provide this important service to our community by helping with overhead costs for this vibrant and exciting new works festival.

Our $3,000 indiegogo campaign goal bridges the gap between our anticipated expenses and our anticipated ticket sales and sponsorship revenue. This funding will be divided among all the essential aspects of the Festival: publicity, technical and directorial staff, tech materials (such as costumes, props, paint, lighting gel, and glowtape for backstage safety), and venue rental fees.

Here's what your contribution helps us to pay for at this year's MPF:

Your $25 donation prints ~50 playbills to tell our audience about the plays and playwrights.
Your $50 donation purchases ~5 sheets of lighting gel to paint the stage with color.
Your $100 donation purchases an ad to spread the word about the Festival and fill the house.
Your $300 donation covers the rental cost for one performance.
Your $500 donation covers much of the cost to design and print publicity materials for the festival.
