We're raising funds to try and hire/buy proper costumes for our first panto - 'Snow White the Sequel'.
Wild Things is a drama school with a difference. We're not a drama school full of luvvies, where only the confident, experienced performers get to shine - and we're not aiming to push children / young people into getting agents and taking time off school to film supermarket adverts. We believe strongly in the ENJOYMENT of drama. Drama for fun. Anyone that has been to Wild Things will agree that, as cheesy as it sounds, it's like a second family. And we love that. Everyone rooting for each other, older students supporting younger ones, confident students encouraging those who are that little bit shy. And WE'RE ALL A BIT CRAZY! And why not? We spend too much of our lives being serious - why not let go at the weekend and have some fun!
Unlike many traditional children's drama schools, we don't charge extortionate fees - and because of that, we've always had to be a little creative with our own (or parents'!) wardrobes when it comes to costumes for shows. Well from now on, we want to see whether we can push the boat out a little and hire proper costumes for our shows - but that requires a budget...
... and unfortunately we don't have a budget.
So that's where crowdfunding comes in. We want to attempt to raise money for our costume budgets from now on through crowdfunding. And if it's successful this time around, then we will do it again! But we have to raise ALL of the funds we need - or we don't get a penny... so spread the word and help us reach our £1,000 target (enough for costumes for 40 students).
WE CAN DO THIS!!! XXXXX
