Adopt-A-Home And Help Bring A Play To The Stage

By Byrne Harrison

Rather than the typical appeal for donations, Maieutic Theatre Works is offering a chance to "adopt" a cast or crew member from its upcoming production of Cody Daigle's A Home Across the Ocean running Thursday, September 16th through Saturday, October 2nd. In addition to a cool certificate of adoption and mention on their website, anyone adopting one of the MTW adoptees will get two tickets to see the show.

MTW will be updating their adoption page frequently, but current participants up for adoption include:

ALEX BOND (playing "Grethe")
When Ms Bond is not on stage performing in shows like Off-B'way's Flamingo Court & MTWorks' Barrier Island, she's spreading tolerance one reading at a time with her book "Late Nights With The Boys: confessions of a leather bar chanteuse."

RACHEL DOZIER-EZELL (Costume Designer)
Not only is Rachel designing for the top theatre companies in New York City, like Milk Can Theatre Company, she is also the costume director for The New School for Drama.

DAN GALLAGHER (Lighting Designer)
He's quite the MTWorker, having designed our productions of Anaïs Nin Goes To Hell at the Connelly Theatre, The Oath at the Arclight Theatre, Look After You at the SoHo Playhouse, and Barrier Island at Center Stage NY.

An associate producer of the recent revival of Miracle Worker at Circle in the Square, you might have adopted her as a sound designer in the past, but this season she's doing the real dirty work, producing!

The Spiritual Warrior of the bunch, when he's not trying to get you to come to the show, he's out playing his Lakota drum or Tibetan bowl. Oh yeah, he wanted to make sure you've bought your tickets!

She started collaborating with us during Look After You at FringeNYC, and we've never let go! she's making a heart shape with her hands, but she really wears it on her sleeve.

Thank you so much for posting this Byrne! as you know fundraising is a never ending task for non-profits, and we are always trying new ideas that aren't just "show me the money."

I love your site and your willingness to promote theatre.

Always Grateful,
