Long Island City, NY October 23, 2012 -

With support of restaurant and bar owner, Kenny Matvya of The Blvd in Astoria, friends, family, and a few introductions by OurLIC, a very talented and determined Sarah Bennett and her Ophelia Theatre Company are preparing to perform THE CAST PARTY December 6, 7, 8, and 9, 2012 at the Secret Theatre.  This will be their second production in 2012, and it sounds interesting for those who love theater and performers.

THE CAST PARTY  production, written by Bennett who also owns the Ophelia Theatre Company,  is rehearsing nightly at The Blvd on the patio. It is also raising much needed money on Indiegogo.

"The Cast Party: A Survival Story" synopsis:

An off-off Broadway theater group have closed their latest and possibly final play due to dried up funds. But when news that a young Broadway producer is attending their cast party, the band of colorful misfits band together in an attempt to make all their dreams of stardom come true. However, when too much alcohol is consumed, conflicts arise, secrets are revealed, and the evening is destined to take an unexpected turn.

A little bit about Ophelia Theatre Group:

We are a young group of rough and tumblin' rapscallions from Cali who decided to hitch up and head out east to the bright and shiny beacon, NYC, to see just what kind of mischief and magic we can stir up in the theatre biz.

Biography: Sarah Bennett

Born out of Lake Elsinore, CA as the brain child of Cali native, actress, playwright and our fearless leader, Sarah Bennett; we just recently embarked on a mass exodus to Astoria, NY to continue our growth and dedication to bringing quality stage performance to our community and beyond. Our tight-knit company is comprised of roughly 40 active members and together we have produced works by Neil Simon and Oscar Wilde, musicals such as Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and a Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, and are currently working on original pieces for your viewing pleasure.



We are a theater group originally from California that decided to make the long trek to the New York to make some original dents in the vast landscape of diverse theatre that already exists in this remarkable city. We want to stake our claim and provide you, YES YOU, with original works. Stuff you haven't seen that is both interesting and entertaining!

The Cast Party: A Survival Story touches on what it is to be a part of an independent theatre group that barely survives show to show. This story taps into what it is to be stuck in a hate-love relationship within your own social circle and the essential part those people play in shaping who you are. PLUS, THERE ARE NINJAS! 

Synopsis: The members of a small theatre company have just performed their last of last performances. When an up-and-coming producer attends their cast party they, in an attempt to impress him, make complete fools of themselves. AND when new guests arrive and excessive amounts of alcohol are consumed, the members of the group reveal more about themselves than they had in the entire run of the theatre company. 

The Ophelia theatre group has been presenting quality productions for nine years, BUT this is the first time that we have put together a fundraising campaign of this magnitude. It is with the absolute faith that you will love this show that we have decided to put together this campaign. Also, we're short on cash.  

Maybe you're asking yourself, "Why is this production any more important than all the other campaigns on Indiegogo and other online fundraising websites?" Well, we are glad you asked and have many arguments for that, BUT the biggest reason to support us is that this is a fun, interactive, original production; how could you not? We know you have a lot of choices in campaigns to support, but not as many campaigns are as cheeky as we are! ;-)  

What We Need & What You Get

We need $4025 and this is where it is going! 

  • Venue (5 performances): $1875
  • Lighting trees and stage lights: $1000 
  • Tech Stuff (Fog Machines, Strobes, Etc): $250 
  • Printing (Programs, Posters, Scripts, Postcards): $300 
  • Costumes: $200 
  • Props: $100 
  • Consumables (Like Dry Ice, Cups, Real Food): $100   

Okay, we have a ton of incentives for you!!!!! Please check them out. They are showed to the right of this text, on the side bar! 

If we cannot reach our goal we're still gonna make it happen. Only we're going to have to do it with a little less pizzazz! We will probably skimp first on lighting equipment, set, and eating (just kidding). This is an ambitious endeavour, but what little you can donate we can still use and will go towards making all of the other equally important aspects of this production possible!

The Impact

If you support us in this project we will not only be able to put up our original production of The Cast Party, BUT we will be able to continue to grow as a theatre company in Western Queens, NY.  With your support we can be active representatives and advocates for theatre being performed locally AND we can challenge the concept that you have to go to Manhattan to see quality theatre. 

Every theatre company has to begin somewhere. Please help us make this campaign a successful one.
