HIP HOP!!! FREESTYLE!!! MADNE$$!!!
Y’all know what it is!!! Rapscallions has been doing its thing at Voodoo for a little over a year now, and I am very proud of how much the team has grown in that relatively short amount of time. What started as a niche/specialty show with around six members has grown into a weekly staple at Voodoo with its own dedicated fanbase and over 20 members on roster (if you include past performers who have since moved but could always come back as guests). We were accepted into the New York Musical Improv Festival last year, and we are currently getting ready to submit to several other festivals over the summer and fall (crossing our fingers for festivals in LA and New Orleans). Members of the team (including myself) have been recognized for doing the show outside of Voodoo, which can only be good news for the Playhouse itself. None of this would have been possible without the incredible amount of support we’ve received from Voodoo and its staff, and I sincerely thank you forever for letting this show exist. Rapscallions has been able to reach so many people, creating an outlet for veterans to shine and an accepting environment for newcomers to discover both comedy and hip-hop. This show has a strong foundation beneath it, and now is the time to build and expand upon it. We have been steadily increasing our social media presence, and we are always on the lookout for random opportunities to perform both in and out of state. Voodoo is our home, and we want that brand, along with the Rapscallions name, to start getting major recognition around Denver and beyond. Considering what we were able to do in year one, I have no doubt that if this show is allowed to go on with continued support from Voodoo that we can achieve that goal and more. Comedy, culture, music, energy, HIP HOP, FREESTYLE, MADNE$$!!! Thank you for your consideration.
