Profit share and Unpaid work!
“This is an opportunity to be part of an experiment that could be the future of producing on the fringe.”
As a new company producing original works we do not have the advantage of being able to call on previous investors as no one has ever seen or invested in our work before... So what do you do? We have lots of freinds, family, supporters of the show and new musical theatre fans, We decided to let every one be involved in our project and let them gain extra and exclusive things that we will only be creating for Kickstarter backers!
The Fringe in the UK has been working on this bizarre model of profit share for too long now and it is something as a creative team we don't stand by, giving some one nothing for 7 Weeks work is definitely not a sustainable way of working! Though our Kickstarter campign will be raising money towards paying our cast and creatives the national minimum wage it will also go towards pay for set, costumes, rehearsal space hire.. it will also be creating this fun filled new musical all about USHERS.

Don't forget All donors are listed on our programmes and website as supporters and will be kept up to date with rehearsal pictures & Videos from cast and crew! All backers will be invited to a special backers only party in London!
