Gadfly Theatre Productions
Fundraiser for PATRICKS CABARET

Gadfly Theatre Productions Gadfly is raising money for PATRICKS CABARET.

Queer & Feminist Theatre For All

Gadfly has an immediate need to raise $1,500 more for Eli Effinger Weintraub's Crown of the Holly Queen. This show combines magic and myth with an all-star Twin Cities theatre scene cast for one incredibly play that serves as a great queer alternative to the standard holiday fare sweeping through the Twin Cities in December. A queer alternative does not mean jade and cynism though--this hopeful play is full of romance and shows the strength of chosen family. All money raise by December 1st will be used for this production. 



Gadfly Theatre Productions produces queer and feminist art that everyone can laugh, cry, and relate too
. We are currently starting our EIGHTH season of highlighting stories and voices of LGBTQ+ people and marginalized women. We are still finalizing details and putting the special queer polish (glitter, it's just glitter) on our upcoming season. It is true that we have vacated the Fox Egg Gallery, and it's also true that we're saving for a bigger, more accessible space.  We are ALSO producing a full season and building a proper, working Board of Directors! Whew!

It'd be a shame for Gadfly to slow down now, and we're not planning too! We've got a beautiful season 8 in the works, and it will include:
TWO mainstage shows (winter + spring respectively)
TWO Drunk Queer History events
ONE Sober Queer History event
and of course, our annual one act geek festival. 

Your donation is critical at this time.  We're working hard to increase visibility for our artists as well as increase artist's and contractor's stipends and all of that requires contributions from the community that has kept us afloat all of these years. We're ready to root and make a home not just for Gadfly (although that too!) but for all of the other artists and community/activist groups we've had the pleasure getting to know this season. We're building a Board of Directors and we're still making great art and giving space when able. Money raised now goes to literally just two places:
1) Paying for rights, rental fees, and artists for our upcoming shows.
2) Allowing our artistic directors to spend time building a board to ensure a sustainable future for this organization.

We are beyond ecstatic to create a space that produces passionately progressive work, and to create that work ourselves. Visit our website http://www.gadflytheatre.org/ for more information about pending events. Thank you in advance for your generous gift to this unique and radical theatre company.

*Please note that all money raised DOES go to Gadfly Theatre Productions except for a small processing fee used by GiveMN and Patrick's Cabaret to ensure that your donation is tax deductible. We have changed fiscal sponsors, so it says "Patrick's Cabaret" where it used to say "Springboard for the Arts." We are fundraising for our own work, but it is their 501(c) 3 that allows us to do so while we work towards having our own. Thanks to Patrick's for doing that for us, and thank to YOU for donating to our eighth season.
