Help Actors’ Equity Get a Stamp!

I call this: theatre — Posted by KP @ 4:24 pm

aeaIn 2013 Actors’ Equity Association, the union for professional actors and stage managers, will turn 100 years old. They are campaigning to get a commemorative stamp made to celebrate that occasion. Naturally there are a lot of people who want stamps made for themselves, so to go with their proposal they need to show that there’s interest in it. They have put a petition online to be signed by anybody who supports the idea of this stamp. They are trying to get 10,000 signatures. Now there are 40,000 people in the union, so theoretically that shouldn’t be too hard, but as someone with a wealth of experience at asking actors to submit things on time, I think they could use some help from non-members, too! And I’m sure the more names they have increases their odds of being selected. You don’t have to be an Equity member to sign it, and it’s super-easy — put in your name and hit submit!

If you’d like to show your support, you can sign the petition here.
