Last chance!

April 01, 2019

Hello everyone,


There's less than 24 hours left in our crowdfunding campaign! As we count down the final hours of this campaign, we'd like to express our deepest gratitude to everyone who has supported this production so far! This week, our cast and core are taking a well-deserved break, but we will be back reenergized and rejuvenated as we wrap up this PCN season. On April 7th, we will be getting critiques from Akbayan alumni, and I am so excited for our new members to meet some of the past PCN coordinators! Stay tuned to our official Instagram page @akpcn for more updates and photos from our rehearsals!


We have less than $750 left to raise for this campaign, and we can hit our goal with your help! Please consider donating and reaching one of our giving levels, as the gifts offered will not be available at any other time! Please also share our campaign with those that may be interested in supporting by forwarding this e-mail or posting our link to your social media:
