About our funding – All of our events are free of charge, in some cases that is because it costs us nothing to put them on. We have recognition group status with the City of Greenbelt which allows us to use space in the Community Center for free (when it is open). Some events, however, do have paid facilitators. These are professional musicians or entertainers, for example, that deserve some coin (it’s not a lot) for their hard work and expertise.
Our way of funding these events is the “pay it forward” model, we collect enough money in advance to pay for an event, and then donations given at that event pay for future events. We used to pass the hat around and collect cash – but as you might imagine that is harder to do since we moved online.
So we are adapting – and have an online donation below – clicking the paypal buttons below allows you to make a secure donation so that we can continue to fund fabulous fun events like ….
Improv in Tiny Boxes … With Host Ian Blackwell Rogers
Our first event on June 5th was a smash! We were not sure how things would go over zoom. Thanks to our brave beta testers to get the ball Rolling and of course our fabulous host.
Some of the notable quotes from the evening…
“I haven’t laughed so hard since February”
“were you ingesting LSD by smoking?”
“I put a whole bunch of holes in this cheeze and it still doesn’t taste swiss.”
“I Normally never find anyone alive to fall in love with”
And many more….
Ian Blackwell Rogers is a DC/Baltimore area actor who has been doing mostly Shakespeare and other early modern plays. He has a background in improv and lots of experience with theatre games and exercises, and is eager to see what can be adapted to this new world where we live in little boxes from the shoulders up.
