A Special Thank You: DISCOUNT at 54 Below!

December 10, 2019

As a special THANK YOU during this final week of our extended PitchFunder campaign, for ONE WEEK ONLY, we're pleased to offer a $5 discount on tickets to the Class of 2020's performance: "From The Desert With Love" at Feinstein's / 54 Below on Friday March 13th at 11:30pm! Use discount code "DESERT5" between December 10th and 17th. ASU receives half of the proceeds from this event toward future showcase trips to NYC so it's a great way to support the class of 2020 and future Sun Devils! We hope to see you there, and thank you again for your support of ASU Music Theatre Showcase 2020!


And now for special "ENCORE!"...

December 06, 2019

Thanks to your incredible support, continuing incoming donations, upcoming events, increased interest in our Showcase, AND our special performance at 54 Below, we are extending our PitchFunder campaign until December 15th!


THANK YOU for your incredible generosity. We are 57% of the way toward our goal and bringing in more than $1000 per day since our fabulous Holiday Cabaret earlier this week. If we keep it up, we can reach our goal thanks to generous people like you!


We are so grateful for your continued support in our efforts to get to New York and show the world what ASU is all about!

Go Devils!


Three days to go!

December 03, 2019

Dear friends,


Thanks to your support and our successful Holiday Cabaret at The Phoenix Theatre Company, the ASU Music Theatre Class of 2020 has raised over $6000 toward this year's showcase in New York City!


We are in our final push to raise as much as we can toward our goal of $14,400 by this Friday.


This annual fundraising effort helps cover the $1200 cost per student to attend showcase, an integral educational opportunity for their field. There is no amount too large or small to give. Any donation goes a long way toward providing the students this integral educational opportunity.


Please join me in supporting our students today by giving any amount to our PitchFunder campaign.


Thank you for all you do for ASU students. We are grateful for you!

Friday is "Sun Devil Gratitude Day"

November 14, 2019

Greetings ASU Music Theatre fans!


Thanks to you, we are a quarter of the way through our campaign and about a quarter of the way toward our goal!


Tomorrow, Friday November 15th is Sun Devil Gratitude Day, when we thank YOU, our donors, who make everything possible.


As a token of our gratitude, the students will offer a LIVE performance from class on our Facebook page this Friday at 10am (Phoenix time).


We hope you will join us on-line for this special "thank you" performance from our 2020 Showcase students. Thank you for giving to our PitchFunder for the ASU Music Theatre 2020 Showcase in NYC!

We are off to a great start!

November 08, 2019

Dear Sun Devil Music Theatre fans,


We are off to a great start! In just a few days we've reached nearly 20% of our end goal! PitchFunder projects that raise 30% of their final goal in the first week are more likely to succeed. That means we need to raise about another $1500 this weekend and we think we can do it! Please share our PitchFunder link with your friends and let them know how important the ASU Music Theatre Showcase is for our incredible students.


This month you can see ASU students, alumni and faculty on stages all around the valley performing in productions at ASU, The Phoenix Theatre Company, Hale Theatre, Stray Cat Theatre, and more. We are proud of the talent we bring to Arizona.


Thank you for your gift to support our students' ongoing success and learning. We are very grateful for you!
