BSD Surpasses Kickstarter Goal


Two hundred eleven people came together in support of the Backstage Drama Kickstarter Campaign.  Launched late December, the BSD team had 30 days to raise $10,000 for additional production and marketing for the series.  The pledges came in fast and furious on the last few days and the team surpassed it’s goal by more than $2,500.00.  BSD producers expect production to take place mid-April as schedules are finalized and crew and talent secured!  Check out the Kickstarter page here.
