We are really worried about the state of our theatres during the Covid-19 crisis and we want to do something to help!
Our initiative ‘Students Saving Our Theatres’ is something really fun to help support the arts industry and the more people we can get involved, the more money we can raise! Our plan is to do fun weekly challenges in which drama societies from all around the UK participate in and raise money for their local regional theatre. We will do this for 5 weeks, each week with a different challenge. This will all culminate in a scratch night at the end of the five weeks in which anyone involved in University Drama can send in clips of their performances/music/poetry etc which will be premiered on Youtube. This scratch night will be a great way to raise money and to give artists a platform to show off their talents when theatres are not operational.
All money will be sent out at the end of the five weeks and we will split the money equally between all the theatres we are supporting; chosen by participating Unis in their local area.
Please support however you can to ensure such a special industry survives this pandemic .
