Kickstarter launches an amazing story by the creator of “The Wizards of Oz entitled Pearl and the Pumpkin. The story is based on the 1904 book and subsequent Broadway musical by W.W Denslow and Paul West. It was updated with new comedy and music by Daniel Freedman and produced at The Dramatists Guild in New York City.
In addition to this, the show will be performed with wonderful costumes including a very magical 18 musical numbers. The creator of this story is very excited to present this campaign to all people in different parts of the world. Apart from this, they also believe that this will be a very exciting production for the theater venue. It has been their desire to have a huge venue show and they also think it would be wonderful for a video production.
Pearl and Pumpkin has 3 main sections. The first one is the scary Halloween party and pie contest. The second one has lots of surprises as Pearl Pringle and Joe Miller are leading on separate hijinked nautical adventures. There is even an underwater ballet. After a devastating storm, they land on Denslow Island Bermuda. Dreams come true as, King Denslow helps them return to Littletown. Furthermore, they have the hugely talented and professional Choreographer and Director Andrea Andresakis heading the production. She has recently directed “Spandex” on Off Broadway as well as production of “Evita”, “Grease” and “Seussical”.
Aside from this, she directed the Pearl and the Pumpkin at the Dramatists Guild on Broadway. They also have a Tony Award winning Producer interested in the show and many talented actors. The lead role in the show of Joe Miller was played by Andy Sandburg, who was a student at Yale University at the time. Since then he has gone to win a Tony Award for his producing.
They are very hopeful for their stretch goals including $45,000 sets and props as well as DVD manufacture, $40,000 larger orchestra, $35,000 additional music rehearsals and $30,000 additional costumes and lighting.
