These expenses include, but are not limited to: paying the amazing company of dancers, studio rental for rehearsals, advertising and marketing costs, costumes designed by beloved Twin Cities costumer Sonya Berlovitz and other miscellaneous production elements, including lighting designed by Jeff Bartlett.
