Into the Woods

Little Red Dot presents James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim’s enchanting production of Into The Woods. It is a musically sophisticated and artistically exciting production which takes everyone's favourite storybook characters and brings them together for a timeless, modern classic.

This magical show has an insanely talented cast and being an independent theatre company it is also completely student run, with student actors, band and production team. Consequently, it is up to us to fund this show and being a newly established company therefore your support is vital in helping us set ourselves up for success!

We are aiming to raise £690 to cover set, props and some of the costume hire as well.

Who we are

Little Red Dot is a new theatre company established by students with a deep passion for theatre. We are a group of enthusiastic and compassionate individuals. Into The Woods and has been the creative team’s favourite musical for so long and are so excited to have the opportunity to put it on at the John Cooper Studios however we need your help to make this happen!

Back in February, Megan (Producer), Becca (Director), Josh (Musical Director), Corey (AMS) and Issie (Production Manager) got together and expressed their interests in setting up their own theatre company. They have managed to cover the costs of the venue and rights hire- but this is just the beginning for them and need your support to allow their production to happen.

After much planning, searching and auditioning to expand their team and cast, they are now a team of 10 production members, 15 cast members and 15 band members. All of whom are students. Their project would be a fantastic opportunity for you to help a completely student run and independent production come to life.

Where will the money go?

Any money you are able to donate to our production will cover the costs of set and costume. Our directors artistic vision is to transform the John Cooper Studio into an all encompassing and magical wood, meaning we are covering the entire floor space with fake grass and the entire studio will be covered with ivy and fake foliage and trees. However, this is expensive and will not be possible without your donations!

  • The entire cost of set (without the trees) will come to £590 which will include enough fake grass to cover the floor of the studio
  • The cost of the trees will come to an extra £50 which would truly bring our artistic vision to life-
  • The cost of props will come to £50 , we will be self sourcing most of these items however some items can only be purchased.
  • Any extra money you are able to donate will go towards the cost of our costume hire
