A big thank you to the community for your support of Panache and Fun Home. We are happy to have received the award for Best Musical for 2018 at the Star News Awards. Congratulations as well to Rebekah Carmichael who won Best Supporting Actress in a Musical for her role in Fun Home, and Cathy Street for Best Newcomer!
Hello Panache friends. We have been asked by a few of you about our plans for our next season. We think it is important for you to know about an issue that has greatly impacted our company. If you have not heard, Brown Paper Tickets, the company we used for online ticket sales, has failed to pay us for our last production, LIZZIE:The Musical.
We are not alone. Hundreds of small theatre companies across the country have also been impacted by nonpayment, voided checks and the banking fees associated with them. Brown Paper Tickets owes us thousands of dollars for our production of LIZZIE that we counted on to pay the team that brought you this incredible performance: our musicians, performers and crew.
Without this money not only is our future uncertain, but more importantly, those who worked so hard to bring you LIZZIE have not been paid. We have filed a case with the Attorney General and the BBB, but it does not look promising. We need your help. Can you help support the future of Panache and our LIZZIE team? You can make a tax deductible donation here.
Also watch for an upcoming release of a joint project, War of the Worlds, with Big Dawg this week. We will do everything in our power to get through this and take care of those who have worked so hard for us. We thank you for your support of Panache and look forward to moving past this tough time and to entertaining you in the future.
