01) LETTER FROM YOUR EDITOR
On Planet Kickstarter, we've already seen the Pratchett fan
community flex its collective wallet-muscles on behalf of "Troll
Bridge", raising far more than the requested total for Snowgum Films
to complete the production. Now there is another Kickstarter appeal
on behalf of a smaller-scale but no less wonderful Pratchett work:
Cult Classic Theatre's upcoming world premiere production of Good
Cult Classic Theatre is a Glasgow-based amateur company of very high
standard and, well, unusual ambitions (their motto is "We do the
weird stuff"), who are currently engaged in preparing the March 2013
exclusive production of Good Omens. Director Amy Hoff and the rest
of the Cult Classic "family" of cast and crew have already
successfully produced the world stage premiere of "Doctor Horrible's
Sing-along Blog" and a number of other whimsical productions on all-
volunteer shoestring budgets. Now they would like to give
Aziraphale, Crowley, Anathema Device and the rest of the Good Omens
characters the best possible treatment. Enter Kickstarter. Amy says,
"If everyone donates even £1 we could succeed! Rehearsals have
started this week, and it's shaping up to be an amazing production."
There are fifteen days left to run on the Kickstarter appeal. Do
give a little. Or even a lot. Go on, you know you want to help bring
Good Omens to life on the stage!

By the way, advance tickets for the production can be booked at the
Cottiers Theatre website:

02) SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL ANGEL (AND DEMON)!
The Cult Classic Theatre "Good Omens" Kickstarter appeal:
"Cult Classic Theatre in Glasgow, Scotland, is honoured to be the
first to have the permission to adapt Good Omens for the stage. With
your help, and the assistance of Cottiers Theatre, we hope to make
this production our most spectacular yet. The play is scheduled to
open in March 2013 and our dedicated cast and crew will be working
hard to produce a performance to remember. This will be a non-
exclusive, non-profit amateur production.
"This will be a very large undertaking. Challenges include cast
dropouts, illness, and the inability to source products in time. Of
course, the final challenge is attracting an audience.
"A great deal of our Kickstarter money will be going to advertising.
We have also worked around cast dropouts in the past and have worked
with very few resources to make sure a project gets onstage, and we
haven't failed in that yet. Should we attract enough funding, the
director will focus entirely on the production of the show,
advertising, and research to ensure that it will be a great
