In addition to producing powerful stories of strength, hope, survival, love, diversity, unity and compassion: LTP is determined to bring support and awareness to those in need and the global community at large...Every story we produce has its roots in a larger context. We feel that by donating time, energy and/or funds to the causes we highlight in our work in addition to dynamic storytelling, we can give back many times over & try to affect change on multiple planes….
In addition to the cause-driven philosophy with which we choose to run our business - LTP'S mission has ALWAYS been as unflinching as it is indelible...
LTP'S mission is to write and produce strong, powerful, dynamic and LEADING roles for women and minorities....
Six years ago, LTP started in music events - producing benefit shows for the community that brought local artists and musicians together to support various causes, organizations and individuals in need.
In addition to bringing the community together while spotlighting & supporting local artists, our goal was always to donate a portion of the proceeds after cost to anyone and everyone in need. This made for a pretty broad mission, but at the risk of sounding self-righteous and cliche: we really did want to help everyone we could.
Our thought process was this: if HUGE production companies, the likes of which produce shows and festivals that sell thousands, tens of thousands and even a hundred thousand plus tickets would donate even $1 from each ticket sold to a nonprofit or charity - the impact would be undeniable. In that vein - we wanted our idea to be stolen.
When you blow on a dandelion, you make a wish....when a dandelion is wished upon, then whisked into wind, its seeds spread seemingly everywhere and are planted with the intention of the wish. The medieval Latin origin of the word dandelion translates to dens leonis, ‘lion’s tooth.’
