After campaigns for movies, it’s now time for online theatre to kickstart their own.
For those unfamiliar with the hit sensation theatre company Starkid Productions, known for making musical parodies of Harry Potter, Batman, and some original stuff too, you definitely need to watch their plays, available to everyone on YouTube.
The Starkid Twisted campaign was launched last Friday and they’ve already reached their goal of $35,000; but there are still twenty-seven days to go and a lot of perks for those who donate (plus endless possibilities if they reach higher goals). You can get a special “Thank You” desktop for only $1 pledge or even VIP tickets to meet cast, crew and see the show for $200. Their perks also include digital downloads of the album, limited edition t-shirts, hand-drawn art from the production, and more great stuff.
The concept of live theatre within the distance of a click is definitely very appealing, and the talent, humor and music this group presents you with will probably get you hooked on their shows, and wondering what they will twist next.
