I’m sure you all have been hearing about this amazing project taking place on June 20th at 8PM called PROJECT1VOICE. If you haven’t let me introduce you to it now and encourage you all to support.
At 8 PM on June 20th nineteen (19) African-American theater organizations from New York to LA will make history as they present “1VOICE, 1PLAY, 1DAY”, a national one day benefit staged reading of the Alice Childress classic TROUBLE IN MIND. This inaugural event, by PROJECT1VOICE, seeks to make the country aware of the plight of African-American theater companies and to preserve their legacies and those of African-American playwrights. This campaign is shedding light on the need for assistance, both financial and in kind, for all arts organizations in this harsh economic climate. These organizations are fighting for their very existence. Please join us today and support the theaters in our network.
Remember without these organizations we will not have places for emerging directors, playwrights, actors, costumers and other theater professionals to hone their skills, We are losing the organizations that are at the forefront of cultivating our creative voices in the American theater. It is imperative that we spark renewed interest in the arts, the artists and the organizations that nurture them.
PROJECT1VOICE is proud to take on this challenge of trumpeting our artistic resources so that they can sustain themselves now and into the future.
