Help us construct our most complicated set ever as we present Michael Frayn's hilarious farce "Noises Off."


     Hat Trick Theatre has been part of the Tampa Bay Area's theatre community for over 7 years now.  One of our biggest goals as a company is to make theatre enjoyable.  In our society, the arts suffer from a bad reputation.  Artists are often perceived by the public as snobbish, elitist, and loners.  We continually try to break down this perception by making our events fun on multiple levels and by trying to make a personal connection with our audience.  We want to bring back the time when theatre was seen as an enjoyable place to be, not an intellectual chore.  That brings me to the reason for this kickstarter!


We will be presenting Michael Frayn's classic farce "Noises Off" in July.  This is  without a doubt, our most ambitious effort to date.  "Noises Off" is a play within a play.  Act 1 takes place at the final rehearsal of a play, Act 2 is during the performance but seen from the OTHER SIDE of the set, and Act 3 is seen once again from the front of the house.  This is usually done with a rotating set, but we want to get the audience closer to the action, so during Act 2...the audience will be brought backstage to watch from the other side of the set!  We believe it will be a one of a kind experience for our fans...


The set for "Noises Off" is our biggest scenic undertaking ever.  The set calls for a country manor home with 8 doors, 3 staircases, 2 levels...and many other costly elements.  We want to raise the $1500 dollars to help pay for this huge undertaking.  Your contributions also allow to keep our ticket prices low so that anyone can come be a part of this experience...which has always been one of our biggest goals.  Thanks so much for your time, consideration, and support of the arts.

Hope to see you at the show!
