Hard for the Money

July 21, 2018

Ticket sales will begin in mid-August and 25% of our net proceeds will go to benefit Dress for Success Twin Cities.  More detail about their amazing work and why we want to support this non-profit will be posted in the near future.

Auditions are happening and we are so grateful to everyone who has or soon will share their stories with us.  We are still accepting submissions through July 31.  Please consider sharing your story.  If you know anyone who might want to share theirs, please spread the word.  Because this event is intended to amplify the voices of a wide variety of people, and Minnesota is more diverse than our Sven and Ole jokes would indicate, we especially encourage anyone who feels their story is not seen in the mainstream.

Have an inkling to join us, but not sure where to start?  Have questions before making a submission?  Contact me at sally_vardaman_johnson@yahoo.com.
