Help Found Stages create innovative stories that can be shared with audiences digitally during COVID-19!

About the Project

Social distancing has completely changed theatrical and community events. At Found Stages, we're envisioning new ways to connect through storytelling regardless of distance!

In 2018, we launched our first text message play - a theatrical story sent to audience members' phones through text messages over a series of days. Now, we're building on what we learned in that first experience to create a whole new text message play, based on a well-loved classic work.

Your support will fund the artists involved and the technology required. Plus, your donations will provide free access to this digital experience for first responders and others!
