Our world is small and big and fantastic and every story has its place and time and needs. Your donations TODAY help create WORLDS that only existed in our dreamer heads.
The opulent world of Emma Woodhouse is Not a Bitch with its sparkling cider and fancy hor d'oeuvres, YOU helped make that. The dry, dry and the wet, wet of Rain Follows the Plow, YOU helped make that. The diner with coffee and pancakes and pie in#Leaves. YOU helped make that.
What world will your donation today help make? We don’t know for sure, but we know it will be small and big and fantastic.
Tonight, we’re back to doing what we do best. Telling you stories. Check out the small and big and fantastic world of Leaves and check us out through November 23 at the Playwrights’ Center.
We aspire to create work that serves as a critical shelter for new ideas and hard conversations. This philosophical space that we work and play in allows us, our guest artists, and our audience an opportunity to view themselves, their community and the world from another angle.
In order to maintain our umbrella, we rely on ticket revenue and your kind donations to rent physical space for script development, rehearsals, and performances. Your donation on Give to the Max Day will go to fund the vital tools it take to make new work.
And hey, bonus! If you donate to Savage Umbrella between 10am and 11am tomorrow, Springboard for the Arts will be providing a per donor BONUS. Whoa.
While you wait for that awesomeness, let’s all snuggle together (under our e-umbrella) and check out this teaser for Rapture, Tanner Curl’s latest project!
A tenth of the world’s population suddenly disappears. The media emerges with a theory that those who vanished were artists, and the global event is dubbed The Artist’s Rapture. Rapture follows those left behind and their struggle in the aftermath.
By making a donation to Savage Umbrella as part of this year’s Give to the Max Day you are directly supporting the livelihood of every artist who joins us to make something. We are committed to compensating artists for their contributions to our productions as much as we possibly can. Consider the direct local impact your donation will have on the economy of our community.
Also, you get to be a benefactor of Blake E. Bolan's latest work, These Are The Men.
A reimagining of the Oedipus mythology, These Are The Men examines the love, hope and beauty hidden in the darkness of one of ancient Greece’s greatest tragedies. Through the blossoming relationship of Oedipus and Jocasta, we explore the intersection of time, fate, and freewill. Is ignorance of the past (and future) truly bliss?
As Give to the Max day approaches, we wanted to give you a little taste of the work your donations will directly support. In addition to supporting new, fresh, and independent art you are also supporting our commitment to offer sliding scale ticket pricing. That means no one gets turned away for lack of funds. Ever. With that in mind, please consider Savage Umbrella in your Give to the Max Day planning
While you think on it, check out this teaser for our upcoming workshop of June by Hannah K. Holman.
Set in pre-Stonewall America, JUNE explores the roles we play and the secrets we hide. Will June be able to keep it together, or will things start to get out of control? If she’s not careful, somebody might get hurt
