The Robots are coming. Are you ready?
The actors are acting. The director is directing. The robots are...shhh...don't tell anyone but the robots are on a smoke break. (You just can't get good help anymore.)
Yes, rehearsals are in full swing for Strangeloop's fall show, R.U.R.: Rossum's Universal Robots, and the futuristic, sci-fi world we are creating for you — where robots will type your letters and other lesser robots will clean up your streets — is A-MAZING. But in order to make this show "more than so much grass" we need GOOD help. We need your help.
Just a little further to go. Our Indiegogo campaign ends in less than 40 hours and we need you to help us meet our goal of $1,000. That money will make sure everyone comes out properly costumed with hats and robot bits all in place, that when a prop gun is needed that prop gun appears (instead of a piece of gun-shaped aluminum foil) and that actors aren't forced to rehearse in cardboard boxes (because we couldn't make rehearsal space rent). Plus, everyone knows, robots ain't cheap.
As a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, your tax deductible contribution, whether it's $5 or $500, will help us pay for production costs. We cannot wait to bring this show to you, one we know will be a crowd favorite, but we need your help to make it happen. Click here to support the show.
You can also support Strangeloop and the robots in other ways. Help us spread the word about the show and invite your friends, family and even your frenemies. Point them to our Facebook Event for all the details. And while you're all on Facebook, make sure you check out our Robot of The Day and share your own robot-related news. You can also buy your tickets in advance at Brown Paper Tickets. And finally, make sure you hug a robot today. You might not think it to look at them, but all they really want is a little bit of love.
The robots take the stage September 7 through Octobert 6, 2013, with discounted preview performances on Sept. 5 & 6 at 8 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays at The Side Project Theatre, 1439 West Jarvis Ave., Chicago.
See you on old Rossum's Island!
We beg to remain, for Strangeloop Theatre. Yours truly.
