For this years Bridport Young Performer's Scholarship (BYPS) annual Christmas Show, we are hoping to put on the musical version of the Children's TV Classic, The Demon Headmaster.
BYPS is a local charity that raises funds for talented young locals to use for Performance tuition whether it be local classes or national Drama Institutes. The Scholars earn their scholarship by hosting fundraisers and banking hours devoted to fundraising. The more hours, the larger scholarship available.
The Christmas show is an annual tradition now in it's 6th year! After last year's success of 'The Young Ones' which raised over £1,300 we have decided to do another full scale musical.
Due to the nature of the charity, all funds raised are exclusively used for scholarships so we have no funds to use to put on fundraisers. For most costs when putting on a show we can pay on invoice after the performance however, theatre rights can be expensive and have to be paid up front.
The licensing company have been very kind and given us a very good rate but we need to raise the money before we are able to apply for the rights.
We really appreciate any help and we will offer rewards to those who support the fundraiser as a thank you.
