WE RAISED £1,201

from 22 donors

This project received pledges on Sat 05 Mar 2022


We set out to fundraise between £800-£1200 for our upcoming Spring Production of Spring Awakening at John Cooper Studio@41 Monkgate. This Tony Award winning 2006 rock musical adaptation follows a group of teenagers in a small German village in 1891. We are delivering a gripping, modern retelling of Duncan Sheik and Steven Slater's text with reflections of the old-fashioned values through our 21st Century lens. We have until the start of March to raise the money, so require your donations urgently! Our production team is currently working tirelessly to deliver an incredible performance you do not want to miss! Whether in front of or behind the curtain, the whole team would be very grateful for your support in helping us achieve our goal.
