Buck Up Backstage - Help raise funds to renovate the backstage to be a welcoming and accessible area for professional artists and young creatives
Support us with our Christmas Campaign to ‘Buck Up Backstage’ so that we can host a greater diversity of artists in Tewkesbury and provide an accessible, inspiring, and professional space for our young creatives to take part in theatre. Help Snow White make our house her home this Christmas!
We’re thrilled to have Snow White move in with us this Christmas. She’s a lovely lodger, who’s fabulous at cooking and cleaning, and reading us bedtime stories. We’re hoping she stays forever! Unfortunately, she’s not totally thrilled with her new home and is threatening to move out to a lodge in the woods. We need your help to make her stay!
What’s the problem? Our backstage area is firmly stuck in 1974. It’s an asbestos filled, falling apart, damp, and drab space, with zero wheelchair accessibility. Our shower has an asbestos ceiling panel and abysmal water pressure. Our sinks leak, and we can’t open our storage cupboards. It’s more evil than our Evil Queen Malvina!
Snow’s not the only one who’s upset. Over the last few months we’ve massively expanded our activities. This includes starting a monthly creative club for children with autism, and launching Roses Young Creatives – our pioneering reimagining of the youth theatre, giving young people the opportunity to make feature films and theatre with renowned artists. We’re also expanding our work with disabled professional artists, with some really exciting projects happening next year, and welcoming more schools and community groups than ever before.
We desperately need your help to renovate our backstage area so we can welcome ALL artists, and provide our community with a space they deserve.
The utterly lovely Snow White has provided us with her ultimate wish list to make our backstage the perfect place for our talented creative community to live. Including everything from a lick of paint to asbestos removal, and every penny makes a difference!
