In honor of the one year anniversary of the Newtown massacre and its 26 victims,
4 days of powerful theater centered around the themes of gun violence and gun control with the goal of creating discussion and inspiring action.
December 12th--15th, 2013
At The Workshop Theater, 312 W 36th St New York, NY 10018
The Stop Gun Violence NOW Theater Festival was a big success!
44 actors, 17 playwrights, 11 directors, and 2 designers presented their work.
More than 200 audience members attended the shows.
We raised more than $2,000 for our 5 sponsoring gun control organizations:
New Yorkers Against Gun Violence
Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America (Greater NYC chapter)
Organizing for Action (NY Chapter)
Newtown Action Alliance
Harlem Mothers SAVE
We held 5 panel discussions with 24 incredible panelists that gave our audience members practical solutions for gun violence prevention.
The SGV NOW Theater Festival was produced by Chrysalis Theatre Company.
Through a fundraising campaign, Chrysalis raised $6,540. We still need to raise another $4,000 to recoup our production expenses. We were very pleased to be able to give 100% of the ticket proceeds from the festival to our sponsors, who do incredible work every day to prevent gun violence and make a safer world for our children.
Now, we need your help.
Please take a moment to watch our fundraising video, and please consider making a donation:
For $30 or more, you'll get the festival t-shirt with our logo on it!
