Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We are Centre Stage Theatre Academy from Lincolnshire, England. Recently, we were offered the opportunity to perform on a Broadway stage in New York City! We are a group of talented, creative, motivated young performers between the ages of 7-21. Opportunities like this are rare, and we want to make the most of what we are offered. We live in a deprived area of Lincolnshire, where arts funding cuts are taking their toll. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and we need YOUR help to make it happen. Raising £15000 will allow us to afford the fees for the performance, as well as going towards flights and accommodation.
For each performer, there is a £220 performance fee. On top of this, we are raising money to cover our flights to and from New York (from England) and our accommodation whilst we are in New York City.
The performance is next July and is a show comprised of many theatre groups from around the world. We sent in an audition tape of our performance of "In" from Carrie the Musical and were lucky enough to secure a spot in the show!!
We need your support, as we are from a deprived area of Lincolnshire, England and do not have the funds readily available to be able to take up this opportunity. We cannot afford to miss out on this, though! We are a team of young, talented, hard-working, determined performers and this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that would be heartbreaking to have to miss.
