DIRT Gets Funded!!

A new theatrical/musical work in progress met its goal and then some in a recent Kickstarter funding campaign. It's a collaboration among three Spokane artists who have each attained a national reputation: best-selling humor writer Patrick F. McManus; composer, arranger and musician Olivia Brownlee; and touring professional actor, Tim Behrens. The show combines words, music and humor to create an original story in concert, scored for 7 musicians and one indentured actor!

DIRT contains original McManus stories surrounded by original, authentic, and wildly creative music, evoking folk, traditional jazz, Texas swing, American classical (think Copland), cowboy, barn dances, and other popular forms. The composer is Olivia Brownlee, a talented singer, musician, composer, arranger, and artist. The story telling is universal, accessible, G-rated, imaginative, intelligent, and most of all, funny.

And while they raised the $10,000 to cover base artistic costs and the score, they are still accepting contributions, and actively seeking Underwriters for the first Four Performances. Call Tim, at 509-993-7121 if you are interested.

A preview performance is scheduled for Saturday, October 13, 7:30pm, at the Lair Auditorium on the Spokane Community College Campus. (Tickets on sale in early September.)
