Default Please support the Bum Phillips opera...yes opera

Wade on his Twitter account is asking fans to help financially support an opera that is inspired by the life of Bum Phillips.

The Luv Ya Blue era, I suppose, is both a triumph and tragedy of operatic proportions.

They need to raise a little over $5000 by 4/29. They are 50% funded for the first part of the project. I will personally be embarrassed if we can't raise that much money from the 4th largest city and surrounds to honor someone we love so much.

I wrote about it here. "No word if there would be casting of Bud Adams in this opera. Most of the best operas have some sort of devil character."

But the best link to go to is the direct site.

You can donate any amount. It is like a Kickstarter project...you donate any amount from $1 to whatever. If they fund the project by the date, they charge you. If they don't, you get your money back. The way that the site processes payments is through the Amazon merchant system. It takes 10 minutes tops to do.

If we all work together, we can make this happen. Do it for Bum. Do it because Wade asked us to. This thing needs to exist.

Just be thankful they aren't doing a Jerry Glanville opera.

More info:

They are planning on holding this opera in both Houston and NYC.

Right now there are 22 supporters of this project. 22 people in the entire planet who want to see a opera honoring Bum Phillips.



I would be sad if we couldn't get any more supporters than that. The interface to donate to the project only takes a little bit of time.

The Producing Artistic Director of the project, Luke Leonard, is a Cy Creek grad who now lives in NYC. He has met with Bum about the project, and Bum is good with it (his only condition is that it was handled respectfully). Bum sees it as an opportunity to promote the Bum Phillips Charities he works with though his church.

Thanks Bill!

I'm afraid the timing of this is tough--draft week is a hard week to have a deadline.

I was told that if we get this first part funded, and they get the opera completely put together, that is the point where the theaters are interested in making it a part of their seasons.

Really, it takes hardly any time at all to do the online donation. It is all handled through Amazon payments. And the donation doesn't go through unless they make their funding goal.

What makes this sort of personally annoying to me, but just how it is, if this were a Chuck Noll opera, it could get funded instantly. /old wounds.

Nah, people don't suck. People have lives.

There are now 36 supporters.

We are running out of time given the way the non-profit fundraising site works.

But a lot of people have told me that they are interested in doing this, they just haven't done it yet.

Here's the link.

2 days left.

65% funded.

$3483 to go.

If we don't make the big $ push today, it may not happen because people don't do much web stuff on the weekend.

The donation/signup process is easy. Takes less than 10 minutes.

HAHAHAHA Bill!

It is the Steph and Bill Bum Phillips Opera telethon!!!!!

Since this morning a few more signups. We're at 39!!! Let's make it past 50. I bet if we get past 50, we make our goal.

If we don't make this happen, then Bud Adams and the terrorists win.

NO! This aggression will not stand, man.

Yes.

There will be opportunities down the road. I'm not sure if there will be the gifts that came with the crowdfunding.

Here is the production company's website: http://antiquatedplay.tripod.com/Mon...s/indexMP.html

If you want your donation to be associated with that production, I suggest emailing through the link and finding out about that.

Luke, the artistic director is very nice and I'm sure he would love all the help he can get.
