Default Texans fans activate! Bum Phillips Opera

We got enough fund raising to create the score to the Bum Phillips Opera.

Now we need to raise enough money to fund the production:

http://www.usaprojects.org/project/b...premiere_opera

about:

Quote:
Thank you again for helping us commission the Bum Phillips opera. The music will knock your socks off! Workshop A: Act One was presented by Long Island University from Feb. 8-10, 2013, followed by a presentation at the La MaMa Great Jones Rehearsal Studios in Manhattan. I am writing to share that the dates for the 2014 World Premiere have been confirmed! The world premiere of BUM PHILLIPS will be March 13-30, 2014 at The Ellen Stewart Theater in New York.

We still have a ways to go in order to produce the opera and we just launched a new fundraising campaign on USA Projects. This is by far the largest production that my company, Monk Parrots, has undertaken with a tremendous potential for broadening our audience while supporting our mission. But we cannot do it without you. Now is the time that we need your support more than ever. Please help us produce the world premiere by making a tax-deductible gift before the fundraising deadline: June 30,2013. If we do not reach the minimum goal by June 30th, then our project will not be funded. We also greatly need your help directing friends, family, and colleagues to the campaign site, as well.
It is tax-deductable.

And the website puts all the proceeds towards the production without taking anything out.

And you can get stuff back at different donation levels. Like having your name on the program.

If you have a spare $300, you can get an autographed copy of his autobiography.

If you have a spare $2000 hanging around, you can go out to Bum's ranch.

And if you donate, and let us know you donated in this thread, I will give you happy rep points because I can't do much more than that.

They are desperate to get this funding by the deadline, because if they get this funding, they get additional funding that makes it work.

Ultimately, I like to honor and support people while they are still alive. Getting this opera together would be a small way to honor someone who was important in Houston's history.

This would make its goal in a few days if they did the performance somewhere in texas. Houston's performing arts scene is 2nd only to NY and it would be a huge event here.

Is this or is this not the same project that I donated to that got me the personally signed book by Bum 'Coach, Cowboy, Christian'?

And by "Cowboy" he didn't mean those folks in southern Oklahoma.

You're a freakin' stud for donating!!

I mean if it's the same project and they need a few more bucks, they'll get it.

If it's a new project, they'll get it......... But I'll need some new swag.

OK, this is the deal.

Our last fundraiser created the words and music. The score. The staging.

They used that to do a rehearsal of it.

Now they want to produce it for a broader audience. So need more money for that part.

As for Houston, the producer is from Houston. He wants it to be here. They are hoping that staging it in NYC, they can get bigger level funding for a larger production in Houston, and then perhaps bigger than that if successful.

The $20,000 isn't the entire amount for the staging. They need that amount to show interest so that other grants go through. They don't get the fan cash, they don't get the extra money.

If anyone knows some opera big wig in Houston, the creative director is coming to town in August. He is trying to get interest in staging it here.

I do not know any opera peoples. Maybe someone else here does.

Default Re: Texans fans activate! Bum Phillips Opera

The director of the show wanted me to thank all y'all who have donated so far. He could see the activity coming from this message board.

Yay Texans Talk!

The more donations the production gets, the more realistic it looks to others for them to donate too. So you all have helped get this going.

He says that they very much want to get the show to Houston. That getting good reviews in NYC would help. They are also eyeing grants that would allow a touring show.

We can make this happen. Please consider a donation big or small to support this.

Bum is 89 years old. We can certainly raise $20,000 to make this happen, as a small way to honor him.

At the $300 level, you get that autographed book and other stuff. If you already have one of those, consider getting an autograph as a gift for someone else. Father's Day is coming.

Please donate: http://www.usaprojects.org/project/b...premiere_opera

Right now we are at $950. Let's bust a grand.

OK, here's my article about it.

Bum Phillips' life as an opera? Fans can make this happen.

Please use this to spread the word to other message boards/social networks.

We can do this if we work together. We've done things like this before.

Ultimately, I am hoping that there are enough people who really, really love Bum to at least get their name on the Production Sponsor list at their premier.

Default Re: Texans fans activate! Bum Phillips Opera

We are stuck at 11 contributors. $1200.

My post on this has been FB shared 128 times, and tweeted 26 times.

The challenge is to not just get people to share the info, but to actually act on it.

I hate hate hate asking for folks to donate money. At the same time, if we can't get this funded, we sort of suck. Bum Phillips is one of the most likable people in the world.

It takes about 5 minutes to make a donation. Be one of those people whose name is on the premiere playbill.

16 supporters.

$1490 raised.

They are still doing $ for $ matching gifts.

PLUS!!!! > They have improved the perks for donating starting at the $75 level.

And they added another visit to Bum's ranch.

Default Re: Texans fans activate! Bum Phillips Opera

Wish I could donate, but in a sort of financially tight period right now. I'll be in a better position in a month or so, but time is tight so not sure if this will still be available.

Is there any way that you can get this story to one of his former players? Heck, even one of the current Houston Texans players for that matter! If they could just donate an amount equal to a night out would make a big difference.
