Prospero Theatre Storage

Prospero use drama to make a difference to the lives of people with disabilities. We're raising money for storage for props and costumes.

We did it!

On 23rd Oct 2017 we successfully raised £1,325 with 47 supporters in 28 days

Prospero Theatre are based in Caterham, Surrey but work throughout the South East. We are lucky enough to own a large number of props and costumes and a few set pieces.  Our costumes vary from period dresses and tailcoats to sets of children's costumes that we use for a range of workshops. And we have a lot of hats and cloaks! Below are some of the costumes used for 'Red and the Wolf' which we took to Edinburgh last year.

We do a lot of shows and workshops, working with people with and without disabilities. These are mostly small-scale community projects and this resource has meant that we are able to bring these projects in on a small budget.  This year, for example we have done two first world war plays, so lots of coats and jackets.  In November we perform three plays based on Dali; our costume lady is currently working on very colourful tunics to go with some skirts that we already have.

We have been extremely fortunate to have had free storage at a local Arts Centre since the company began in 2015 but this has come to an end.  We have found a wonderful attic  in the beautiful Soper Hall in Caterham, with space for lots of costume rails and boxes. This campaign is to raise £2700 to cover the cost of the room for the first year, after which the rental charge will be built into our budget. The Soper Hall is a community venue and these costs are far lower than a commercial operator would charge.

 

 

Do give if you can.  We use drama to make a difference to the lives of people with disabilities.  Our props and costumes are essential to the work.  Oh and we have a few puppets - thankfully not all as big as this one. Thank you.
