To cover the increased costs associated with first musical production, Next to Normal, Two Muses Theatre has turned to the Kickstarter online fundraising website.
Based in West Bloomfield, the women-focused theater company was co-founded by Farmington Hills resident Barbie Amann Weisserman and West Bloomfield resident Diane Hill.
According to the Two Muses Kickstarter page, "Funds will be used to pay for a music director, musicians, additional lighting equipment, audio gear, musical score rental fees, and considerably higher licensing fees."
The drive's goal is $6,000, and donors will receive recognition and rewards, depending on their level of giving. A pledge of $3,000 or more provides the donor with a special command performance of any show from Two Muses' 2013-2014 season.
