About Juniper Productions
When I started Juniper just over two years ago we were a playwright-centric organization. Not a surprising starting point given my own writing background. Now, as we start our third year, we are making a strong commitment to Philadelphia's emerging directors.
Juniper has created the #DirectorOpportunityFund campaign to celebrate and support Philadelphia's freelance directors.
As an independent producer, I recognize how vital and essential the director's vision is to the whole process from auditions to opening night.
It begins through the careful casting choices she makes, the process she establishes in the rehearsal room, and the sheer work of detail. She thinks about all the dimensions– the, feel, the pace and the space of it all. I have learned that the decision I make of whom to hire as a director is the first and most critical decision I make.
Given how important this decision is, I am thankful that we enjoy a wonderful and collaborative relationship with Jill Harrison and Directors Gathering.
When we are looking for a local, emerging director to work with, Jill is my first call Jill created (DG) in 2014 in order to diversify and develop the directorial voices in Philadelphia and elevate these voices through director-centric programming and opportunities. One of these continued opportunities is provided by Juniper. Since 2017, Juniper has hired eight (DG) directors for our productions and readings.
Juniper will be providing $6,500 in fees and stipends to Philadelphia directors in the coming year. This is the money that we are seeking to raise to provide fair fees for directors for three productions, as well as a stipend for an assistant director.
Patreon is Juniper's most effective way to raise friends who are supportive of our work. And to receive funds to pay our associated artists.
Why? For Juniper and the artists we work with, we receive the gift of financial stability and sustainability month in and month out.
And for you? As a Patron you will become closer to this incredibly hard, joyful, and devotional work of making theatre. Through my blogs and our in-person events, you will have opportunities to meet our theatre artists, get to know what's distilling in our big brilliant production pipeline, and - after this campaign is concluded - to raise a glass to the directors and the other theatre artists you are directly supporting.
In the Juniper spirit of collaboration we invite you to find a contribution level, and check out all the perks that go with it. We suggest $10- $20/month over a year for individuals and $3/month for a year for our artist friends.
Thank you in advance for celebrating and supporting Philadelphia’s directors.
This is all vital and bold work. And we can't do it without you.
P.S. Double the impact of your dollars! Thanks to the generous folks at the Deupree Foundation all Patreon contributions made through November 30th will be matched.
