about the show

Hi. My name is Hope Salas and I am the writer, producer (by design) and performer of this original one-woman show entitled, HOPE. This show is slated to be mounted Off-Broadway, Spring 2018. And I am thrilled to share with you that this piece has been selected to be presented in the United Solo Theater Festival in the Fall of 2017 on Theater Row. Check it out here.

In order for these incredible opportunities to be realized, I need your help. My goal is to raise the additional $20,000 needed to pay for rehearsal space, the Off-Broadway theater venue, and my artistic team: director/choreographer, set and lighting designers, costume designer, stage manager, press and marketing, and so much more. I have 60 days to make this happen, and I’m inviting you to help me achieve this goal.

I have created this crowdfunding campaign and video as a way for me to extend an invitation to friends, family, colleagues and new acquaintances to walk with me on this journey, to watch its development, and to witness the birthing of this show and echo the same message: Yes! Yes! Yes! 

Through the power of YES, I have found my voice, the characters voices, and I have found YOU—my tribe, my friends, my people. How awesome and strong we are together! How thrilled am I to be able to do what I CHOOSE to do, in the way I WANT to do it, as a woman in the arts today! And with your support the power of YES will be manifested in the mounting of this important show and its timely message. How thrilled I’ll be to write you a thank you note, offer you a comp ticket to the show, invite you to a rehearsal, invite you out for nosh and a drink (on me) or send you one of the fabulous gifts listed under each donation level. 

Your generous support (financially and otherwise) is greatly appreciated.

If you can’t give at this time, please consider sharing this video with your friends and family and asking them to support a woman you know will deliver a hell of show. Go on! DO it! They’ll give a little or a lot and I’ll thank them from the bottom of my heart!
