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!
Pirate Portraits from our photo booth at the Port Costa Town Wide Yard Sale … Ahoy!
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.
