Pork Filled Productions is pleased to announce the addition of a special Preview performance of A Hand of Talons on Wednesday, April 27 at 8 pm (a week from now!) Join us at the Theatre Off Jackson and be among the very first audiences to get a sneak peek at the latest chapter in the the New Providence steampunk saga . Preview tickets are Pay-What-You-Can both online and at the door, so just name your own price and grab yours today at BrownPaperTickets!
Thanks to our generous Kickstarter donors, Pork Filled Productions is excited to add Sunday, May 15 as another low cost performance for its world premiere run of A Hand of Talons, running at the Theatre Off Jackson (409 7th Ave. S., Seattle), April 29 to May 21, 2016.
“We blew past our fundraising goals and expectations,” says Roger Tang, Executive Director for PFP. “Since we achieved our added $4,000 stretch goal, we are able to make all of the tickets for our Sunday, May 15 matinee at 2 pm only $10, as a part of our goal to make theatre accessible to everyone.”
This special $10 Matinee on May 15 adds to the variety of budget options already available to our audiences, which include Thrifty Thursdays ($12 on May 5, 12, and 19) and two Industry/PWYC Nights (Pay What You Can on May 2 and 9). Our regular ticket prices are also fairly affordable at $18 General and $15 Student/Senior at the door ($15/$12 in advance).
For generations, the Yao clan has ruled the criminal underworld in New Providence with an iron fist. But as the family empire threatens to crumble, Wilhelmina Yao must do whatever it takes to win at in a high-stakes game of power and betrayal. Descend into the hazy underground gambling den of the Fortuna Mews to explore the dark world of steampunk noir in this thrilling third installment of the New Providence series, presented in association with the Theatre Off Jackson.
Tickets can be purchased at Brown Paper Tickets, at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/web/2490244. Running time is two hours with one intermission. A Hand of Talons is rated PG-13 for intense situations and stage violence. For more info, email PFP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Spinning off from the long running sketch comedy group the Pork Filled Player, Pork Filled Productions stretches the boundaries of Asian American theatre. Reflecting the imagination and creativity of modern Asian American artists, Pork Filled Products reworks traditional Asian American theatre to embrace the full spectrum of genres, from steampunk (The Clockwork Professor and The Tumbleweed Zephyr) to supernatural comedies (Big Hunk o’ Burnin’ Love by Prince Gomolvilas), to mistaken race farces (Yellow Face by David Henry Hwang) to crime family con games (Fast Company by Carla Ching) and yes, even Kung-fu zombie Shakespeare (Living Dead in Denmark by Qui Nguyen).
A Hand of Talons is supported by 4Culture and Seattle’s office of Arts & Culture and is an Associated Project of Shunpike. Shunpike is the 501(c)(3) non-profit agency that provides independent arts groups in Washington with the services, resources and opportunities they need to forge their own paths to sustainable success.
We are so excited to announce that A Hand of Talons has achieved our initial fundraising goal! Thanks to the generous support of our 45 backers, we have currently raised an incredible $3,530! We are so grateful to our fans for believing in our show and helping us to create this amazing steampunk universe on stage!
But we still have 4 days to go, so we want to push ourselves to make the very most of this Kickstarter campaign. We are setting a new stretch goal of $4,000 to help make attending the show more accessible. While we already offer several nights with discounted prices, including $12 tickets on all Thrifty Thursdays and two pay-what-you-can Monday Industry Nights on May 2 and May 9, we still want to push ourselves to do whatever we can to make sure that cost is never an issue for folks who want to see our play.
If we can achieve our new $4,000 stretch goal, we will be able to discount all of the tickets to our Sunday matinee on May 15 to a mere $10! Our matinee time slot has proven very popular for those audience members who often don’t have the means or ability to attend events in the evenings, so your extra donation would really give those patrons a helping hand to get out and go see some theater.
Our campaign ends on Wednesday, April 13 at 2pm! We still have plenty of fabulous Backer Rewards to share, so please spread the word and let’s keep our luck rolling! And be sure to get all the latest news on the show on Facebook, Twitter, or www.porkfilled.com.
