Announcing The Cast of MURDER BALLAD

murder-ballad-blog

 

This past weekend we held auditions for the first shows of our 2015 season. We saw a lot of crazy talented local artists (as per usual) and we had some difficult decisions to make. But, we are beyond proud to announce the cast for the first show of our 2015 season, the regional premiere of the dynamite new rock musical, MURDER BALLAD!

 

CAST:

Narrator - Maria DePesa

Sarah - Sara Wabrowetz

Tom: Pascal Pastrana

Michael: Abe Curran

 

We can’t wait to get started rehearsing this show, and are even more excited to introduce it to the Northland. Things are about to get very steamy and very bloody in the Teatro Zuccone!

 

If you’re excited about this cast, this production, our 2015 season and the work our local artists create each and every year, take a few minutes to pledge your donation for GIVE TO THE MAX DAY. Every dollar donated in the month of November goes directly to paying the local artists who fuel our productions with their time and talent.

We’ve got a lot to be thankful for this year. 2014 was a great season – 6 mainstage shows, over 150 improv performances, thousands of people coming through our doors and the work of dozens of local artists on display on our stage. We’re going to be spending the month of November posting on this blog about all the wonderful people we worked with this past season, and how their contributions have made our theater company and the Northland’s theater community better, stronger and more vibrant. Be sure to stay tuned.

 

But, we’ve also got a favor to ask. As great as 2014 was, we want 2015 to be even better. Even bigger and bolder. More importantly, we want to pay those wonderful people better.  The local artists who fuel our productions with their time and talent do so for a stipend that doesn’t even come close to the true value of their work. And we want to take steps towards changing that.

 

We’re setting a goal of $5,000. That goal starts today and ends on Thanksgiving. AND EVERY DOLLAR DONATED BETWEEN TODAY AND NOVEMBER 27TH WILL BE USED TO PAY OUR ARTISTS.

 

We mean it. Every. Single. Dollar.

 

You can donate through PAYPAL, through CAUSES, through NETWORK FOR GOOD, even through the MAIL. Or, you can visit the GIVEMN site and pledge your donation for “Give To The Max Day.” Or just do it below. Couldn’t be easier. Hell, you can find us on the street and hand us the change in your pockets.

 

We say it again: EVERY DOLLAR DONATED BETWEEN NOW AND THANKSGIVING GOES DIRECTLY TO LOCAL ARTISTS. Please help us show the talented people who live and work in our community just how special they are.

 

 

 

 

All We Want For Christmas…

Renegade Theater Company is on vacation (except, of course for Renegade Improv) until the New Year. But before we sign off for 2011, we wanted to take a moment to thank the artists and audiences who have made 2011 our most successful season yet.

But we also wanted to take a moment to ask for your support. In order to continue to provide the bold, cutting-edge theater we’ve come to be known for, we need donations from people like you. All donations are tax deductible, and all donations earn our undying love and appreciation.

Donating to Renegade is easy. Just CLICK HERE and choose whether you’d like to donate through the mail, facebook, Network for Good or PayPal. And the best part is this…

EVERY DOLLAR WE RECEIVE BETWEEN NOW AND THE END OF THE YEAR WILL BE MATCHED BY THE A.H. ZEPPA FAMILY FOUNDATION!

So if you can, please take a moment and donate to Renegade Theater Company and help us create theater in this community for many years to come.

Merry Christmas from all of us at Renegade!
