Anyone who knows me knows how passionate I am about playwriting and theater. And even if you don’t know me personally, hopefully that passion comes through in my work and the tidbits I’ve shared on my website. So I’d like to take this opportunity to ask for your help in supporting a new theater company that I’m particularly passionate about right now: Leviathan Lab.
Leviathan Lab’s mission is to advance Asian American performing artists by providing opportunities, resources and support for its company members. I’m proud to say that I’m not only a company member, but also the Co-Director of the Leviathan Lab Asian American Women Writers Workshop (LLAAWWW), the first writers group of its kind in the country. I feel truly blessed to be amongst a group of such talented, supportive and generous artists.
We have a lot of ambitious and exciting projects in the works this year, including a site-specific theatrical event written by LLAAWWW members, a screening of 10-minute films produced by our Film and New Media Initiative, and the Shakespeare Quartets. But we need your help to make it all happen!
On April 7, Leviathan Labbies will be participating in Run Leviathan Run!, a 10K race in Central Park to raise money for our upcoming projects. I’m lucky enough to have a husband who is both extraordinarily athletic and incredibly supportive, so we have teamed up for this effort. He’ll be running the 10K while I, along with fellow Labbie and teammate Dorim Lee, make sure we reach our fundraising goals.
We’ve pledged to raise at least $1000 and we hope you’ll help us realize our goal. All donations are fully tax-deductible, and no donation is too small – or too big! We hope that you’ll help us achieve all of Leviathan Lab’s goals for 2012 and beyond – this is only the beginning!
Please visit www.leviathanlab.com and click DONATE NOW under Team Reyes-DeCrow. Once you’ve made your donation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and say, “I’ve made a pledge to support Team Reyes-DeCrow!”
Thanks so much for your support and I’ll be sure to keep you posted on all these exciting projects! In the meantime, follow @LeviathanLab and hashtag #RunLeviathanRun on Twitter to get all the inside scoop!
