Subject: Fwd: Support Superman 2050 Tour in association with MHSRA [TEXT ONLY]
> As a fun outreach project for the summer, MHSRA is working with Chicago theater group Theater Un-Speak-Able to promote a Midwest Tour of Superman 2050.
> Superman 2050 is an innovative show about Superman, set in a world where Midwest cities are connected by a network of bullet trains! The show has just finished a run at Second City's Donny's Skybox Theatre and received great reviews. Now it's going on tour and the Midwest High Speed Rail Association is going along. As the Manager of Education and Outreach for the Association, I will be there every step of the way as a source of information about high-speed rail and how people we meet can help to make high-speed rail a reality.
> Tour Details:
> When - July 20th-25th
> Where - Milwaukee, Minneapolis, St. Paul, Chicago
> How - by Riding Trains!
> Throughout the entire tour, the group will travel exclusively by train. In each city, they are hoping to perform at a train station as well as in a theater venue. A list of venues and times will be released soon. Along for the ride will also be a documentary filmmaker who will catalog every step along the way. At the end of the trip, he will edit together a documentary film that will tell the story of the current state of travel in the Midwest and just how important it is that we start pursuing high-speed rail as a region.
> But we need your help!
> WHAT YOU CAN DO:
> 1. Attend a show! (venues and times to be released soon)
> 2. Help support the tour and MHSRA's efforts to spread the word about high-speed rail. Theater Un-Speak-Able needs to raise money to make the tour happen. Go to their Kickstarter page [ http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/zacbs/superman-2050-midwest-tour-high-speed-rail-documen ] to help them reach their goal. You can donate as little as $1 (If everyone who receives this email donated just $1, they would reach their goal 8 times over!) They are also giving away a whole bunch of exclusive rewards (including show memorabilia, an exclusive comic series, and theater tickets!) for those who chose to help. Check it all out here [ http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/zacbs/superman-2050-midwest-tour-high-speed-rail-documen ].
> 3. Please help spread the word about the tour!
> Finally, For those of you in Chicago, Superman 2050 will be back at Second City this fall for a second run at Donny's Skybox. Shows will be Fridays at 7:30pm from September 30th to October 21st.
