BIG FISH IN THE SUMMER

We will likely be moving the production of "BIG FISH" into the summer months. Please fill out the form below in order to give us an idea of your availability. All members of the company, including members of the Pit Orchestra should fill this by Friday.


PLEASE FILL OUT THIS FORM.

POSTPONED THE MUSICAL: A Fundraiser for When the Curtains Rise Again

A newsletter will be coming out today to all of our patrons asking for their participation in our fundraiser "Postponed: The Musical".


In the months of March and April, we will lose $40,000 of revenue. While we are currently researching small business loans, we believe our #rrpaPostponedTM fundraiser will get us the resources we need to finish this production when schools open again.


RRPA cannot wait to bring our community the beautiful story of “Big Fish” but we won’t be able to without your support! This initiative is to raise the funds we need to finish producing the show. Our previously planned in-person fundraisers are inaccessible due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.


We are asking that EVERY member of the company, including Pit Orchestra Members, reach out to family members, friends, and neighbors and send them our PRESS RELEASE as well our official LOGO. You can even personalize your messages. We hope to sell 1,000 tickets to PostPoned the Musical via our ticketing website by April 1st! If we achieve this goal we will be able to finish producing the production of "BIG FISH" when we return to school. Help us achieve this goal. We know our reach is far and wide, and we need your support now more than ever.


We will also be posting this on our Facebook and Instagram. We ask that you share these posts in private and public groups and comment if you yourself have bought tickets. (I just purchased the seats I usually sit in with my family).


Thank you for participating! Let's make this happen and change lives and build futures!
