Normally, I’m not a huge fan of Kickstarter projects, I don’t why, I guess I’m just a bit ‘bah hum-bug’ at times. This, however, seems like a a decent one. Firstly, it’s a Crowley production, and I’m always in for a bit of Uncle Al. Secondly, productions like these are expensive as hell to put on:

We at Eleusyve Productions are currently working on our 4th full length rock opera based upon the seven planetary theatrical rituals that comprise Aleister Crowley’s Rites of Eleusis. The Rite of Sol, our current project, will be stage over several days in Seattle WA, with additional promotional performances else-where as our schedule and finances permit.

For those of you who are playing along at home, this is our second attempt to get funding for this project. Sadly, we did not reach our first goal. We’ve decreased the amount of funding we’re going to need, as we’re going to have to move to a smaller venue.

The money we collect through Kickstarter will be used to cover the cost of theater rental, insurance, sets, props and costumes for the production.

Watch scenes from The Rite of Mercury, The Rite of Venus and The Rite of Luna on YouTube.

If you can afford it, sling these cats a dollar. I was pretty impressed with their earlier productions, and I’d like to see more.
