AUGUST 4, 2019, 3p-7-ishp. BEACON HILL  (right before we leave on tour! WOOO!)

Come support theater simpletons in their endeavors to EAT! DRINK! BE MERRY! THEN HIT THE ROAD! (Help us cover ensemble salaries costs for the coming tour and projects for the coming year!! WE HAVE PLANS we'd love you to be part of! And gas we'll need to buy, STAT!) 

AND WE WILL RULE THE WORLD WITH GARLIC BUTTER! (OK - cilantro lime ginger sauce, too. And BBQ, ok!) 
This private fundraising party is for friends and fans, old and brand-spanking-new - we are delighted to have you [well done finding the invite!]

Kids welcome! Friends welcome, too!!

THE DEAL 
WE PROVIDE: Oysters to Grill, Beer & Wine, some good nibbles......
AND LAWNBOWLING!!!!! (at one of the best clubs in the US, with some of the best bowlers around. All for the price of your attendance! ) 

We encourage folks to bring something to share and a grillable to toss on the non-bivalve BBQ. If you have a hotdish or a special picnic salad or cake you want to bring, PLEASE do.  But we WILL have plenty to eat, and it is not a requirement - just a delicious community builder.

WE WANT YOUR PRESENCE! We have news we want to share in person. And hugs we must dispense, and thank you's we want to give in person. Support comes in many forms and your friendship and support means the world to us. 

COME! PLAY! Even if you can't stay long or can't bring a potluck offering; come have a cool beverage and an Oyster (or other snack) and enjoy one the most beautiful views in the city while supporting unique theater experiences in the Pacific Northwest. 

RSVP!!! We need to know how many oysters to get    :)         Llysa [at] theatersimple [dot] org
CAN'T ATTEND?? Might you consider sending your wallet? We find donating helps as much as your hug of support. And is currency that pays rent and bills. (Festivals tend to hold onto monies at least 3 weeks POST-event, and we cannot ask folks to wait that long. ALL HELP toward our $6000 goal is appreciated. And our $8000 stretch goal means Andrew and I get paid, too)

Want to volunteer? We could use a few helpmeets - email Llysa for details.

*due to climate change and a ridiculously hot summer, local oysters were NOT available in 2015. And - well, life and art squished us in 2016.
This year, however - OH YES!)
