Thanks to our fantastic donors and supporters, we met our challenge grant goal!
Through our spring & summer fundraising campaigns, we met our matching challenge of $4000 from the East Bay Fund for Artists! In face, we exceeded the goal by about $400, which will cover the associated costs of credit card and fiscal sponsorship fees. Hurrah! and THANK YOU!
You’re the wind in our sails.
Not only do these dollars help the Peripatetic Players to sail around the Bay this summer, the matching funds from the East Bay Fund for Artists at the East Bay Community Foundation will help Idiot String (the Peripatetics’ parent company) create a new play in Port Costa in 2019.
It’s all because of folks like YOU!
Thank you to all our generous supporters of the matching campaign who donated online or by filling out yellow slips or swiping a card at our shows… to those who pledged a Player for the Third Annual Particularly Obstinate Obstacle Course… and everyone who helped us meet our match!
And thank you also to everyone who gives at our performances. Your kind words and smiles put the wind in our sails, and the dollars that you drop in our hats keeps our shows accessible to all!
Here’s what it takes to put on an SPPP summer tour…
- $4500 pays artists (actors, designers, director and technicians)
- $1500 creates sets, props & costumes
- $2500 helps us get the word out
- $3500 pays for park permits, truck rental, and insurance
- $1365 covers banking fees, office supplies, and other expenses
That’s $13,365 for the whole summer tour — or about $1215 per show. Yay, math!
Is it too late to donate? It’s never too late! We’re still counting on donations throughout the summer to meet our overall budget for the tour. If you’re moved, you can donate right here, right now! Or, come to a show and drop some dollars in our hat. In either case, we hope to see you soon!
A rousing Thank You to all who have supported Shiver We Timbers!, our 2018 summer tour — including donors to our Particularly Obstinate Obstacle Course, all those who have donated online, our site hosts and sponsors, and everyone who stopped by our pirate photo booth at the Port Costa Town Wide Yard Sale on May 26.
Thanks to you, we’re already 71.78% of the way to our funding goal of $4000! Huzzah, math!

Your support makes it possible for us to bring free theatre to parks and public spaces around the Bay Area! Think of it this way… rather than buying a ticket, your donation is a lot like handing tickets out to people in your community. Feels pretty nice, right?
And that’s not all…
Your contribution is worth double, thanks to a grant from the East Bay Fund for Artists that matches all donations through July 15, up to our goal of $4,000. This grant will help Idiot String create a new play for Port Costa in 2019.
Whatever the adventure, the Peripatetic Players and Idiot String aim to connect people through joyful shared experience and participatory fun. When we create our shows, we’re also creating the world we want to live in: one full of imaginative play, shared stories, and do-it-yourself delight.
Haven’t donated yet? Want to chip in some more? Here’s a button!
We have shows through August 23 — four more performances — but just a few days left to pledge your support for Aesop Amuck via Kickstarter.
As of this moment, we need just $555 to reach our goal, and we have until Monday night, August 17, to do it. Can you help?
Your support helps keep FluxWagon in her finery, transports her to each performance venue, ensures we’re insured at each location, provides pay for the Peripatetic Players — and keeps our performances *free* to the public.
We’re so grateful for your help and have some sweet surprises for our supporters. Please give if you can, and come on out to see a show!
Thank you to everyone who has donated to Flux Fest ’15 and to our Kickstarter campaign!
We’re now just over halfway to our Kickstarter goal of $2500, with 10 days to go. If you’ve been meaning to throw in your support, now’s the time! Click here to go to Kickstarter — if only to watch the video. If you’ve already given, THANK YOU! Here’s a list of our wonderful supporters!
Because of your generous support, we’ve been able to add some bells and whistles to FluxWagon, like her new trapdoor and Aesop-appropriate paint job.

New this week: animal portraits by the excellent Megan Hillard! (Stay tuned for photos of those after this weekend’s shows in Hayward and San Francisco.)
Your support is also invaluable to less photogenic but essential endeavors, like making insurance payments, buying gas, and renting trucks to tow Fluxie.
You also help ensure the Peripatetic Players can get paid! They’re super photogenic, actually.
