Big Feats - Little Feat 2013 Cabaret Fundraiser
From one Independent Theatre fundraiser into another. On Monday night, Feb 18th, I'll be one of many performers appearing at a special Cabaret fundraiser to try and raise some money for Little Feat Theatre. They have a great little performance space on St Georges Road. I've already seen some wonderful productions there and very happy to do my bit to ensure they put on many more.
Here's what they have to say about it:
Hi there, everyone and happy new year!
We are holding an exciting fundraising event for Little Feat Theatre on MONDAY February 18th, and we’d LOVE to have your support!
It’s now been 2 years since Feat In Space (the company) began and a year of running our own venue, the Little Feat Theatre. During the past year we’ve had an exciting (and exhausting) range of events, including our first Friday play readings held every month, our own productions and some great visiting productions too.
We’ve got some wonderful plans for 2013, kicking off with a fantastic fundraising soiree party!
WHY A FUNDRAISER?
Running a theatre venue, you’ll appreciate its pretty hard to balance the books as its really a labour of love. This year we want to spread the word wider about Little Feat and hire a publicist – but first we need the money to pay them!
The soiree night will be on Monday, February 18th at local Thornbury tapas restaurant, Perri on St Georges Road. There will be delicious tapas finger food and a variety of live entertainment for pleasure, as well as a silent auction of local businesses services and products. Put it in your diary, we’ll let you know more details soon. Tickets $50 (drinks not included but there is a full bar operating on the night).
We hope to make $2000 in total and have set up this Pozible account with an aim to make $1000 (the rest at the fundraiser event) for those who are keen to support us but can’t make it on the day. This way no donation is too small to make an enormous difference to us.
