Donate to help create 'The Four Immigrants: An American Musical Manga' original cast CD!

Intern Intern - Friday, November 10, 2017

This summer, TheatreWorks Silicon Valley produced the world premiere of The Four Immigrants: An American Musical Manga, adapted from one of our books. The show opened to critical and audience acclaim, and just received the Theatre Bay Area Award for Outstanding World Premiere Musical!

Now, TheatreWorks is partnering with playwright/composer Min Kahng and director Leslie Martinson to produce The Four Immigrants original cast album—and they are looking for generous donors to help fund the recording costs. The professionally recorded cast album will not only allow audiences to enjoy the songs from the show, but will also aid Min as he meets with potential theatre companies about future productions. Your investment in the album is an investment in the future life of the show!

Every gift of $60 or more will receive your very own CD (or digital download)! But, there are so many more gifts—even VIP experiences! So whether big or small, donate by November 17 and in addition to your gifts, you will be entered into a drawing in which one lucky winner will receive a signed copy of The Four Immigrants Manga.
