The Electric Baby Financial Summary
We made a splash with our debut production, The Electric Baby by Stefanie Zadravec in January-February 2016!
Don Calamia, a veteran theater critic in SE Michigan, wrote: "With their first show, Kickshaw has already mastered the art of creating excellent, thought-provoking theater. It’s one of the best opening productions by a new company I've ever seen."
Here is a breakdown of what it cost to produce The Electric Baby.
The Electric Baby Expenses
Kickshaw honors the trust of its donors through mindful management of resources.
Until we have built a solid foundation for Kickshaw, we are working as volunteers. By borrowing equipment and hiring exceptionally skilled designers, we produced The Electric Baby for $39,000, which was $6,000 under the projected budget.
The largest expense - 52% - went toward employing the 19 artists it took to create the show.
Kickshaw supporters are job creators!
The Electric Baby Income
Generous donations from our founding investors made up the largest portion of our production budget, enabling us to produce a stunning piece of theatre, and stay in the black.
Our marketing efforts, while done on a shoestring, resulted in over 600 tickets sold.
As our reputation and visibility grow, we expect ticket sales to soar!
