Between what we raised through the FWYC and donations made directly through our website, we raised a total of $4,279. It’s not enough to get the show on its feet, but it’s a great start, and thank you all for helping us get to this great starting point. Our next step will be to write grant applications and hopefully get the rest of the funding we need that way. For any donors who are to receive production-related prizes, those will be honoured once we have enough funding to put the show on its feet, and we will be in touch as things develop.

Stay tuned to our website, FacebookTwitter Instagram, and sign up for our e-newsletter for further LEAR developments and details on our other projects. We also accept donations 24/7 through our website in case you know anyone who wanted to donate to the FWYC but didn’t get to before the deadline.

Thank you all so much again for your support! Making theatre happen is such a community effort, and we wouldn’t be where we are today without you – our wonderful community.
