General Manager found!
Super important to find a General Manager to handle all of the business aspects of producing a musical and we found a great one! Before we sign a contract with them, like with any business professional, we must pay a retainer. Please donate $20 (or more if you can afford it) today so that we can raise this money by next week and remain a part of the festival.
