Help Stop the Stigma!

Our New York Progress:

It is our passion and focus that through our work, stigma and discrimination will no longer prevent anyone from pursuing their journey to mental wellness. 

Our goal of raising $420,000 to bring our show to New York and spread Scott’s message of hope and healing is currently underway, having already raised over $270,000.

Time and time again, Sarasota attendees of CLOWNS LIKE ME reported that their perspective on those living with mental illness had been “forever changed” after witnessing Scott’s story.

Help us bring this story to new audiences in New York, and pave the way for touring this show to where changing the conversation surrounding mental illness is needed most.

Above & Beyond!

We've raised 65% of our goal to get us to Off-Broadway.
Every donation helps to fulfill our mission!

CLOWNS LIKE ME


Winner of the 2023 "Best Feature" at the Conquering Disabilities with Film International Film Festival

In his world premiere, one-man show 'Clowns Like Me,' Sarasota actor and storyteller Scott Ehrenpreis tells his humorous yet profound story of living with mental illness.

 

“Clowns Like Me” reveals the fascinating, heartbreaking, and ultimately uplifting true story of Scott’s personal journey as he struggles against OCD, bipolar disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome, social anxiety and depression. Ultimately, Scott discovers that being on stage gives him the power, even for just a couple hours, to step into the light and leave the shadows of his mental health struggles behind.

 

Audiences are in for a show that will make them laugh, cry and leave thinking differently about the stigmas tied to mental health.

Joel and Scott Ehrenpreis

"Best Feature" award.
