Support Us - Support Theatre

Staging a musical is not cheap. Just about every aspect of putting on a show has a cost.

Some are obvious to the audience; costumes, scenery, props, others become more obvious as you stop to think about a show you have enjoyed; effective lighting, high quality sound, a live band.


But what of the hidden costs; theatre hire, rehearsal space hire, Director, MD, Choreographer, licence fee. Did you know, for example, that we have to pay 15% or more of our ticket sales in royalties to the licence holder or that a further percentage goes to the theatre? Then there's insurance, transport, equipment hire, publicity, the list goes on and on!


We do all that we can to keep our productions affordable for audiences but in doing so there is inevitably a gap between the cost of a production and the revenue generated. We are constantly working hard to bridge this gap through fundraising activities and applying for grants, where these are still available, but even with these efforts we need more help.

How you can help!

We have individual and corporate sponsorship opportunities for those who enjoy what we do and would like to give their financial support .
