Pull some strings and support Rogue Artists Ensemble in 2013
It’s time for our yearly fundraiser drive and we need your help! We're expanding our community involvement, gussying up Shakespeare, finally completing our splintery passion project and more…. So read on, lend a hand… or a rod… or a shadow puppet light.
Premiering this summer, HYPERBOLE: bard remixes Shakespeare all over Los Angeles!
HYPERBOLE: bard is an original, family-friendly performance created by Rogue Artists Ensemble that recreates a collection of William Shakespeare’s most famous scenes through clowning, masked movement, puppets, and music. We want to bring this whimsical, fun filled show to students! We want to provide free performances for the community! We want to give Shakespeare the makeover he never asked for! And we need your support to make that dream come true.
But that's not all the Rogues are up to...
This October, PINOCCHIO leaps to the stage like you've never imagined!
PINOCCHIO is one of the most complicated, thrilling and beautiful projects the Rogues have ever tackled. This is our unique adaptation of the beloved fairy tale centered around a hoarder, a dead blue girl, and a maniacal wooden boy as they discover just what it means to be alive. Pinocchio can only survive by facing his fears… by facing the terrible Dog Fish.
Pinocchio can become real, but only with your help!
And remember since Rogue Artists Ensemble is a not for profit 501(C)3:
DONATIONS TO ROGUE ARTISTS ENSEMBLE ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE!
What We Need & What You Get
We need to raise $12,000!
The money we raise here will help expand our education department, support our free HYPERBOLE: bard shows this summer in Los Angeles, and make a major dent in our production costs for October's production of PINOCCHIO.

Never will truer words be said than when you tell your friends that you brought to LA: “…a feast for the senses.” –Variety
There are many ways to contribute.
The best way to help the Rogues is with a financial contribution. But we understand that that's not in the cards for everyone. If you can't donate, help get the word out to someone who can and you’ll be a Rogue Champion.
Share our campaign on Facebook or better yet send an email blast out to your friends and family! We’re also always looking for volunteers too (click here) Link - http://www.rogueartists.org/get-involved/volunteeringemployment/
Thank you so much.
Your support over the years and into the future means so much to us, it's hard to express in words. Words alone don't touch upon the immense feeling of gratitude that we have for you, our artistic community. The time, laughs and tears, and contributions that you have shared and will share with us throughout our continuing history has touched our hearts deeply, and inspired us to continue our mission:
To create Hyper-theater, an innovative hybrid of theater traditions, puppetry, mask work, dance, music, and modern technology. Through a collaborative development process, with an emphasis on design and storytelling, the Rogues create original, thought-provoking performances. We cultivate unique audience experiences that appeal to multiple generations of theatergoers in order to expand the boundaries of contemporary American theater.
