TOY THEATER FESTIVAL BENEFIT GALA



Come out now and represent for Great Small Works and for Toy Theater!
MAY 23, 2013
POWERHOUSE ARENA, 37 Main Street, DUMBO, Brooklyn




OUR INDIE GOGO CAMPAIGN IS FINISHED--AND WE SURPASSED OUR GOAL!
BUT YOU CAN STILL GET TICKETS TO THE BENEFIT EVENT, HERE:  http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/389137
Tell your friends!
Despite this great outpouring of support, and despite our consummate frugality, the festival still needs money.
There will be art for auction at the benefit too!



We invite you to join your friends and supporters of Great Small Works at the GALA TOY THEATER FESTIVAL BENEFIT on Thursday, May 23rd, at the powerHouse Arena in DUMBO, Brooklyn, to support Great Small Works' TENTH INTERNATIONAL TOY THEATER FESTIVAL, June 14-23 at St. Ann's Warehouse.

The guest performers at this not-to-be-missed event include master puppeteer BASIL TWIST, toy piano virtuoso MARGARET LENG TAN and the inimitable musicians RIMA FAND and SARAH ALDEN. The powerHouse Arena storefront will also be filled with an ongoing spectacle of intimate paper theater plays created and performed by LAKE SIMONS, ERIN ORR, CHRIS GREEN, TONI SCHLESINGER, ED VALENTINE, DEBORAH KAUFMANN, EVOLVE COMPANY, KEVIN P. HALE/PLAYLAB NYC, PAVI MEHTA, ROWAN DOYLE, JULIA SMITH--luminaries of the miniature theater world! Join us for an evening of sparkling wit, compelling ideas, and visions of the possibilities of puppetry and community for the 21st century! How could you not come?

You may now be asking yourself "How can I be sure to secure a ticket to this astounding array of giant spectacle on the miniature stage?" And we respond with joy, friendship, and Brooklyn cameradie: "Why, with a $25 contribution!"


But wait, there is more…. Have we enticed you? Have we inspired your interest in the compressed power of the miniature? Are you in a position to make an even grander gesture in support of do-it-yourself ingenuity, auto-generated spectacle art, and the world-wide community of toy theater visionaries? Well, dear friends, for a $100 contribution, we further invite you to a pre-benefit Donors Gathering meal, as well, with sparkling music and sparkling drink! 


We will be popping the corks for both events, as we said, at the powerHouse Arena, which is located at 37 Main Street, on the corner of Main and Water Streets, in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Doors for the Gala will be opening at 7:30, and for the Donor's Gathering, an hour before, at 6:30.
Thanks for your continuing support of Great Small Works and the community of artists, puppeteers, musicians--professional and amateur--who believe in the power of toy theater!

  4. Learning with the help of
    english learner laptop for kids is really a very innovative idea. As we as know that kids love to play with toys so they can easily remember things which are explained using them.
