Listen up swibs. This virus is cussin with our money. Seacoast Rep's money.
Nobody cusses with our money.
This isn't your regular Seacoast Repertory Theatre fundraising team. This is Tha Nite Crue. This team is all about takin' lives and takin' bribes. The bribes are donations, see.
Are you brave enough to join Tha Nite Crue, lootin, shootin, and dootin the right thing (which is soliciting donations to a theatre that will be profoundly impacted by the most widespread and serious public health crisis the world has seen since 1918?). Rise and grind implies sleep. This is all grind baby. We already rose.
Our end is $5k. Not great. Not terrible. $5k keeps about a third of The Rep's core staff employed for 30 days even with no shows going on. That core staff raises more money which keeps more people employed. More people employed means the theatre spins back up faster once this whole thing ends. Theatre spinning back up faster means we can get more ticketholders in town to visit our friends in the shops and restaurants before the show. It means our folk back on the boards, doing what they do and getting paid for it.
How are we gonna get it? Straight Nite Crue action, baby. We're gonna post through it. Good posts, bad posts, posts on your grandmas wall. Pull out them Glengarry leads. Haven't been on Facebook? Log in my dude. Haven't been on Insta in a minute? Get your MF angles ready. You showin off, but it's alright. Twitter? Get them followers. LinkedIn? Stay off it, let the nerds do that.
When there's COVID-19 and the streets get mean, and the night is dark, and the fraidy cats whine, Tha Nite Crue holds the line.
This bread, lets get it.
