We are raising money for a London performance of the original musical, TOLKIEN. The story takes you back to The Great War, where author J.R.R. Tolkien first started creating the world of Middle-Earth. Witness how his experiences and friendships inspire some of the greatest written works of The 20th Century, The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings.
A fantastic cast has been selected for this performance of TOLKIEN. Singers from a number of hit musicals, including The Phantom Of The Opera, Mary Poppins, FAME, High School Musical, Jersey Boys and Zorro. This talented group of singers have been both loyal and passionate towards the musical, which is exactly why we raising money, as we wish to pay them fairly for their hard work.
We have raised some funds, but we still need a little more to make this show a success. If you can make a donation, we would all very much appreciate it. There are a number of incentives for you to look at, so if you see anything that sparks your interest, for example a download of The Dawn Comes or a recording session with the composer, then please don't hesitate.
Thank you for your time and we appreciate your help in bringing this original musical to life. We'll see you at The Arts Theatre on November 20th!
Risks and challenges
There aren't many risks involved with this project, only failing to sell enough tickets to cover the cost of the theatre. The money we raise from Kickstater will help cover the cost of the performers and more, but the theatre is quite an expense and we will need to sell the majority of the seats to break even. Though I believe this can be achieved through social media and advertising. J.R.R. Tolkien himself has a huge following still, so I am confidant that many of his fans will be eager to see the show. We will also target this page at musical theatre lovers, to try and spread the word about this exciting new musical.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
