Theatreview on the Fringes and more By John Smythe

About Theatreview on the Fringes and more

Project 2013-01-28 06:05:24 +1300

NZ’s pre-eminent performing arts review website – www.theatreview.org.nz – is facing a funding gap at its busiest time of year. We have 181 theatre and dance shows lined up for review nationwide (so far) for the six weeks from 1 February to mid-March.

These will include reviews of the Auckland Festival, Auckland Fringe and NZ Fringe (Wellington) - to be closely followed by the Dunedin Fringe: extraordinary festivals of creativity from emerging and established talent. Many of these productions will only get reviewed on Theatreview. 

To accomplish this work load we need a minimum of $5,000 by 14 February. Anything over that target will buy us more time as we pursue more secure funding options.

    Your faith and generosity overwhelms us. Theatreview lives on! Now we are free to focus on all the performing arts activity in store this month and next, including (but not only) the NZ Fringe in Wellington, the Auckland Fringe and Auckland Arts Festival, the Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival, the Dunedin Fringe, The Capital E National Arts Festival ... Enjoy! 

    ... and thanks again for the video!

    01:07AM Tue 12/02/13

    Once more, huge thanks to Jack O'Donnell and all who contributed to the promo video. 

    THANK YOU ALL!

    01:03AM Tue 12/02/13

    What joy to have reached our goal with 2 1/2 days to spare. Thank you all who pledged - Theatreview will now be able to meet its immediate objectives through the very busy weeks to come. 

    Of course, being new to this, we set the target at the minimum we needed in order to increase our chances of reaching it. Anything over will buy us a little more breathing space as we pursue more secure funding options for the longer term. 

    Again, multitudiunous thank yous to all! 

    Dunnit!!

    09:50PM Mon 11/02/13

    Who dunnit! You - with dollars and time to spare!!!  Thank you all!

    May I now beg your indulgence regarding the rewards? Expect them late March given our immediate priorities. 

    3 days to go!

What our Pledge Me campaign will do is buy Raewyn and John the time to receive, edit and publish them (as well as review quite a few shows themselves). Please help us breathe easier sooner rather than later: be our early Valentines! - https://www.pledgeme.co.nz/780
