The Bridgeport Theatre Company’s current fundraising drive is thiiiiissss close to success. Or utter failure. Their Kickstarter campaign, as of this writing, has attracted 51 backers who all together have pledged $4,370 of the BTC’s $5,000 goal.
But if you know how Kickstarter works, you know that if they don’t reach that $5,000 goal by deadline, poof! goes all that money, and the BTC gets nothing.
They have five days to fill that deficit, or the poof! scenario plays out.
Checkout the Kickstarter link to see the incentives the troupe is offering. There are the normal rewards, like tickets and autographs, but for $1,000 you get a walk-on role in the production of “Hairspray.”
Deductions are tax deductible.
UPDATE: They surpassed their goal, collecting $5,840 in donations! Three backers pledged $500 or more. Well done!
