We are still fundraising for our big summer project - can you help?

A couple of years ago, we linked up with an American Youth company from McCurdy Theatre Arts, and in 2015 we are getting together again to collaboratyoung person holding up sign saying pleasee on a new musical -  Cult the Musical

Our visitors will arrive in Cardiff during August for a week of rehearsals with our young people, undertake social and cultural activities, homestay with our young people and then we will all travel together to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to perform at Venue 13 for a week. 

We need to raise £2500 to help support the project - please can you help?

For all the information about the project, see our Indiegogo page and please support with however much you can afford.
