A Kung Fu Movie On Stage

We need startup funds for our new theatre company, Thunder Cake Productions to pay for audition space, graphics, web design etc

We did it!

On 9th Mar 2018 we successfully raised £1,120 of £1,000 target with 57 supporters in 21 days

New stretch target

classic bar fight in project AIf we can reach £1500 by the close of our campaign on Friday, we will be able to increase our props budget to include some awesome breakable furniture for our scratch performance - so we can recreate some awesome action carnage like the  classic bar fight in project A or the amazing restaurant scene in Crouching Tiger!

We need your support! We need startup funding for our new theatre company – 

Thunder Cake Productions!

Thunder Cake is turning classic on-screen excitement into on-stage adventure, in a style we’re calling ‘Action-as-narrative’.  We’re gonna re-create a kung fu movie on stage; a humorous, affectionate homage to a film genre we love.  It'll feature amazing sound effects,  talented performers including vocal artists and some crazy physical tricks and stunts. 

We made a start on this project with a little piece we did as a proof of concept and now with more professional experience under our belts we can create something bigger, better, faster, slicker, hairier.  A love letter to every Jet Li, Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee moment we've ever wanted to see up close - coming to a stage near you in 2019!

But before we get there we have a ton of work to do. We need to secure funding, convince theatre and arts organisations to work with us (like the fabulous Garage Theatre in Norwich, our first major partner organisation), do research, find our audience, find actors who have the (literal) chops to take on the broad range of skills and training we'll be asking of them, do theatre R&D, write, rehearse and much more.

This Crowdfunder, as a wise Jedi* once sort-of said, is taking our first step into a larger world.

We hope you'll support us.

*there won't be Jedi in this show, probably, but there will almost certainly be an ancient wise master wearing  a robe or something, so it's totes relevant.
