To get our children's puppetry show The Garden Man to Edinburgh Fringe 2015!
About the project
Little Tricks Theatre is a newly formed Children’s Theatre Company formed by East 15 graduates Chloe Conquest and Rosalyn Cosgrove. We want to create imaginative, visual and creative theatre for children, that gets you thinking as well as having fun along the way!
This summer Little Tricks Theatre are thrilled to be premiering their first show ‘The Garden Man’ at The Assembly Rooms at the Edinburgh Fringe festival. ‘The Garden Man’ is a story inspired by the power of the imagination and the magic of the world around us featuring puppetry and music.
The play was originally a short 10 minute piece for festivals which we have now completely re developed to an hour long show for The Assembly Rooms. This is an incredibly exciting opportunity for the company and one that so far we have completely self-funded.
However we have gone from one puppet to eleven puppets and have now reached the point where some additional funding is required to get us to the festival. In a time where wonderful organisations such as Ideas tap are closing crowd funding is growing ever more important for new, emerging companies.
We require additional funding to help us get materials for the new puppets, props for the show, travel to the festival and for marketing resources. So far we have been incredibly resources using as much recycled material as possible and have even created puppets from plastic bags! We will continue to use our resourcefulness to complete our show and will keep costs as low as possible by buying material from second hand sources and budget shops.
We now need your help to give us that final push towards Edinburgh!
