What is LA VOCE TO ME?

LA VOCE TO ME is an original play about the interconnection of Hans Christian Andersen (author of the original story of The Little Mermaid), Howard Ashman (lyricist and composer for Disney's The Little Mermaid), and the local playwright Jeremy Pace. The experiences portrayed in the original fairy tale are echoed in the lives of these three men across time. Each of their own stories reflect the others in themes of love, sacrifice, death, and rebirth while also dealing with the gay experience, addiction, HIV and AIDS, and recovery.

What does LA VOCE TO ME mean? 

The phrase "la voce to me" is a lyric from the song "Pour Unfortunate Souls" in Disney's The Little Mermaid. Literally, it means "the voice to me" and represents the moment that Ariel's voice was taken in sacrifice by Ursula the Sea Witch. 

Impact of your Support

Participation in the Capital Fringe Festival 2013 is a priceless experience, but it still has its costs. This IndieGoGo campaign will allow us to pay for registration and insurance fees required by the festival as well as costumes, set, and modest compensation for our actors and crew. 

In return, you will be rewarded based on the level of your support. From written recognition of your name or a name in memoriam in our program, to an invitation to share your own story in our LA VOCE TO YOU project, to a handmade piece of art or jewelry, to a Q&A coffee session with the writer, and even a bound copy of the original script. Check the right hand side of this page for a list of potential rewards for your contribution. 

Boosting the Signal

While financial support ultimately pays the bills, this is a play about sharing our stories and regaining our voices! If the idea of this play touches you, please boost the signal and share it with others.
