From our Founder & Artistic Director Bonnie G
July 1st, 2021
Today’s the day! July 1. We’re trying to raise those last MUCH needed funds to help us revive our production of “Sherlock’s Secret Life” this September at the Southampton Cultural Center.
We have over $2,000 to go and I’m still holding on hope that you will help us.
I know it’s been a challenging year, to say the least. Lots of organizations and businesses are in much need of help to recover from Covid. And I know we all have lots of other things on our minds, including just wanting to kick back finally and enjoy our lives together again!
I also know about how life gets in the way of us wanting to do things. Was it John Lennon who once said “life is what happens when you’re busy making plans…”
Plus it’s summertime. Almost the 4th of July. Independence Day! We honor and celebrate that. As an independent community theater company we cherish the ability to be freethinking and independent in our approach and our programming. We also understand that with freedom comes that infamous burden of responsibility. Freedom isn’t free, on so many levels. On the grand scale of life we honor those who’ve sacrificed so much in the past to protect our freedoms. It’s why I started boots on the ground theater… to tell their stories. Keep them alive on and off stage, to reexamine where we came from and provide a possible view to our future.
We want to continue this mission, and bring you some of the best in local theater entertainment but honestly, without you it doesn’t work. Like putting on a show with no audience…
Isn’t it ironic that we’re an independent company but dependent on friends like you? That’s the way of the world. Especially for us smaller not-for-profits. We love Broadway but this ain’t Broadway. We’re a lean mean theater machine unique to Long Island’s East End and we hope you’ll help us.
Please make a donation today. Celebrate Independence of all kinds! I promise you won’t be sorry.
We welcome another new player joining our cast. Lance Schroeder is a Freshman at Pierson High in Sag Harbor and is a talented actor, musician. He’s taking on the role of the young Dr Watson. Thomas Schiavoni played the good doctor last season. Thomas is off to college this Fall and we wish him much continued success in his acting career.
“Sherlock’s Secret Life”. Sept 17-Oct 10.
Botgt is thrilled to present the New York premiere of
“Hostage” by Michelle Kholos Brooks. Directed by Mark Heidemann.
