Fame the musical
Hi guys, so we're the Bath Spa Musical Theatre Society. We are a student-led society that aims to put on a full-scale production each year. We are entirely self-funded, and all of our cast, tech team, creatives and band are students. We have in the past developed and performed productions of Footloose and St Swithuns' School for Unruly Girls. This year we are going to produce Fame The Musical!
As we are entirely self-funded, we have to raise the money for licenses, theatre hire, set construction, costume etc. So the money that you donate would go towards these costs. We have budgeted and crunched the numbers and we estimate our production to cost just over £5000. We are only aiming to raise £1000 through Hubbub, as we have other projects and fundraising going on throughout the academic year, such as bake sales, showcases, bag packing and treasure hunts. The money that we raise here will go directly towards the production.
So Who are we?
Bath Spa Musical Theatre Society is in its fourth year this year. We are an inclusive society that not only nurtures creativity on the stage, but also off of it too. All of our creative team are currently Bath Spa students. We give students the opportunity to embrace their creative side and to be able to foster a love for the arts alongside their studies. We rehearse for three hours each and every week, with this regularity increasing as the show dates approach, sometimes to twelve hour rehearsals, all for the love of being a part of a production. This is often many students' only creative outlet whilst at university and as such, it is so important for us to be able to put on the best show possible. With your help we can make it fantastic! Your money will go towards set construction, making costumes, and other show costs. But more importantly it will make a difference to the lives of the young men and women who are currently working hard, balancing full time studies, part-time working and being a part of a full-scale show. Your donation will help nurture creativity and develop people's love of theatre and the arts.
License Fees £1000.00
Theatre Hire £1650.00
Through many different ways (including allowing the public to vote on what colour to dye one of our hair) we intend to raise nearly £4000 of this ourselves.
what a difference
As you can see, even if we are able to raise £4000 from bake sales and other fundraising events we will still be £1000 short of our target, and that's where you come in. You can make the difference between us being on stage in costume, or in jeans and a t-shirt. Your donation can make the difference between us having microphones or not! Essentially, your donations will determine whether we are able to put on a 'real' show or not, and anything you can give will be endlessly appreciated.
