A Dad trying to help out his daughter

Thanks for all the support.... In case you missed the show today, my baby daughter has her first real job up in Washington, D.C. at one of the most acclaimed childrens theatres in the country. They have a shot at winning a $25,000.00 grant from Pepsi to put on the C.S. Lewis classic, " The Lion,The Witch and The Wardrobe" next summer.  They can win if they get enough votes and rank in the top 15. I,ve attached her e-mail that explains how you can help..I think a lot of you can relate to my situation... We always try to do everything we can to help our kids... Thanks


Here is the information about the Pepsi Refresh project that I was talking to you about!


Imagination Stage is in the running for a $25,000 Pepsi Refresh grant to help create this summer’s world-premiere of The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe in collaboration with The Washington Ballet. This production will combine theatre, dance, music, and puppetry in a way most children have never been able to witness! Aslan will be a giant lion puppet, much like the puppet currently  being used in Broadway’s War Horse.


To make this production possible, Imagination Stage needs your vote. The top 15 organizations with the most votes in our category will get the $25,000 grant - please help us be one of them! We dropped back to #20 this morning and would really like to break the top 15 this week!


Go to refresheverything.com/imaginationstage to see our promotional video and read more about this project.


There are three ways to vote –


·         Visit http://www.refresheverything.com/imaginationstage

·         On the grey toolbar click ‘Sign-in’

·         Login using Facebook or create a Pepsi Refresh Account

·         Publicize your vote by sharing on your social networks (Facebook, Twitter, etc.)

You can also vote by texting 110484 to PEPSI (73774)!


I know that you and I disagree on the importance of the arts, but I KNOW that we don’t disagree on the brilliance of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe! Thanks, Daddy, for helping me spread the word!
