Insurgent Theatre ain’t too proud to beg cuz their commitment to re-use, re-cycling, and re-ally affordable theater is more important than their pride. Here is a list of materials needed for their ambitious summer plans (check out insurgenttheatre.org to see what those plans are):

RAW MATERIALS
-1 x 4 lumber, lots of it. Approx 4 ft lengths or longer
-4″ diameter PVC pipe, we need 11 ten foot lengths.
-4″ PVC couplers, right angles, three sides, T-bones, etc
-Duct tape
-electrical tape
-loose pin hinges (common door hinges)
-silver paint that will stick to PVC
-8 to 10 yards heavy white fabric (for sewing into costumes)

SET PIECES (LARGE PROPS)
-a cot that folds up real small and brings the sleeper at least 12 inches off the floor.
-two identically matching desks, either white, or can be painted white, with drawer
-two identically matching straight back armless chairs, also white or paintable, should look okay with the desks
-2 rolling office chairs

PROPS
-2 matching unbreakable white dinner plates
-2 fake sniper rifles
-How-To books about basic electrical work, demolitions, or hand to hand combat. Especially with large audience-readable titles on them.
-shiny wrapping paper, to wrap a box the size of a hatbox or large shoe box
-4 large heavy duty canvas sacks, no printing on them
-4 inflatable pillows (to go inside the sacks and make them look full)
-old paint rollers/brushes
-an old, non-working cell phone

COSTUMES
-2 50’s style men’s suits (sizes TBA)
-black button up shirts
-black beret
-2 identical pair white high heel shoes, size 8 and 9.
-6 mother of pearl buttons
-2 pair nylons
-2 identical pair white button earrings
– fashionable medium to small sized long raincoat, film noir-ish.
