We have had an incredible journey so far,
creating 5 brand new musicals,
winning 6 awards and visiting 32 venues
since we began in 2016.

We create new musical theatre for everyone, and are committed to touring our work and offering workshops in order to reach the widest possible audience. Alongside this, we offer free tickets to young people who may not have access to theatre otherwise, including young carers, young people in care, and the homeless.

We do not receive any regular funding, and alongside our income from ticket sales we need as much support as we can get in order to continue creating and touring our work. In total, it will cost us £176,000 to fulfil all of our plans for 2019. This will allow us to launch two UK tours, develop two new shows (including a full two-act version of Buzz) and store all of our sets and props for the year, whilst paying all of our cast and creative teams in line with Equity minimums.

There are loads of ways in which you can help us do this, including buying a ticket, buying some merch, telling a friend about one of our shows, or if you want some exclusive opportunities and perks, by joining our Supporter’s Scheme below. In return for joining, you’ll become a fully fledged Fat Rascal, getting all of the treats laid out below. If you’d prefer to make a one-off donation or create your own package, contact us and we’d be thrilled to discuss this with you!

Subscriptions to our Supporters Scheme can be cancelled at any time.
