We made them laugh and cry, and we made a little money for two of our favorite local causes.
When we set out to put on this show, our first objective was to create an opportunity for the readers, to make space for the strories of motherhood to be told. Secondly, we wanted it to be a damn good show for the audience. And finally, we wanted to do some financial good for Northwest Arkansas. Check, check, and check. Specifically, two checks:
We are extremely proud of these numbers. Why?
We donated more than 100% of ticket proceeds.
That’s something to tell your mama.
Thank you, Northwest Arkansas for supporting these important causes, and for playing Show with us on your gorgeous Sunday afternoon. Thank you to our many generous sponsors. And thank you to the very best cast ever.
At least until next year.
If you missed the show, you’ll have your chance to see all the amazing readings. The videos will be posted here in a few weeks. We’ll keep you posted.
