Hi friends! 2017 has already been a long and strange year, huh? When I was visiting my family this summer I watched my step-dad jump from one rail tie to another on an abandoned train track and thought, "That reminds me of the chimney sweeps in Mary Poppins," and then, "They're amazing dancers... what could they do if they unionized?"

My goal this year is to write songs for a musical that I've been calling Mary Jordan: A Marxist Musical. I definitely don't want to do this alone, and I want to use it as a vehicle to highlight oft-marginalized voices. Voices that are queer, and POC, and poor and white, and differently abled, and above all else, voices of people who are struggling to come to terms with this election and its fallout. I'm reaching out to people across the political spectrum: let me know if you'd like to share your thoughts!

Subscribe if you're interested in hearing these songs as they progress! My end goal is a web series or full length film starring mostly women, POC, and poor whites/other marginalized groups. Any thoughts and comments are greatly appreciated, as this is baby's very first rodeo. 

Much love,

Sarah

P.S. Where is your money going, if you choose to invest? To purchase my rompers, of course! Just kidding: my goal is to save this monthly money (whatever amount it ends up being) and use it to pay my actors as close to a minimum wage as I can. Comedy often lacks diversity because the only people available are the people who can afford to not work: I want to allow people to work AND make art at the same time. Hopefully art that is woke AF. Wake me up and call me on things if you see me falling asleep again.

A Personal Ditty!
$1 or more per month
Yep, I'll write you a little song the next time I see you. Topic of your choice (I would do this anyway, but don't tell anyone). JK ALL OF NEW YORK KNOWS. That's why you're here.
You Get An Original Artwork!
$5 or more per month
I can't promise that it will be good, but you will receive an original sketch that I draw to accompany this music! Think lots of black and white. Strong lines. Actually, exclusively black and white. Baby didn't have time for color theory. Should be equal to the number of songs, aka I have no idea how many there will be, lol. 
Insider Look at the Script and Notes!
$10 or more per month
You will be able to read drafts of the script as I write them, and will have access to my notes via Google drive as I do research for the characters! I'm hoping to talk to tutors, single mothers, college students, trans men and women, conservatives, people going through depression, and more. Let me know if you want to help with research, and you'll get access to these notes, too. I'm keeping them pretty restricted so Nazi's don't break in and delete them. 
Make a Cameo!
$20 or more per month
You'll have to get to NYC for the filming, but you can have a shot for your acting reel of you reacting to one of the main characters! (You choose the scene/song) 
You Play Mr. Banks!
$100 or more per month
Just kidding. But seriously-- help me find a talented white dude who is an amazing singer and dancer and can play Mr. Banks. Important role in this. I'll pay you? We'll figure it out.
Goals
4 of 50 patrons
I would love to reach this number so you can follow my progress and give me feedback! The more the merrier, as a good Marxist would say. When I reach 50 patrons, I will invite you to the park for pie and performances of the Poppins pieces. This goal is brought to you by the letter P.
