Who are we?

We are the Southampton Medics Revue Company - a team of medical students at the University of Southampton who write and produce an all-singing, all-dancing comedy stage production every year to raise money for charity. 

our story

The Medics Revue has been running now for over 40 years and has raised thousands of pounds for both local and national charities each year. This year we are fundraising for two very deserving charities:

  • Bowel Cancer UK (http://www.bowelcanceruk.org.uk/) is a national charity aiming to save lives and improve the quality of life for all those affected by bowel cancer, through raising awareness, campaigning for best treatment and care and providing practical support and advice

  • Two Saints (http://www.twosaints.org.uk/) is a local charity working across Hampshire, West Berkshire, Poole and Oxford to improve the lives of those who are homeless, vulnerable or in need of support. They provide housing, support and learning services in order to help break the cycle of homelessness, poverty and exclusion
There is an enormous amount of hard work put in by our members to make this show a success, but it is the support of our sponsors and our fans like yourselves which enables us to set up and produce our six performances to the professional standard that attracts sell-out audiences. 

Where will the money go?

Any money raised will go towards our overheads and help fund the show, so that all of the profits from the show can go to our 2 fantastic charities. If we surpass our target, any extra pennies will be used towards the running cost of this year's show and for future Medics Review activities so we can keep putting on great shows that support some great charities. We may be silly on stage, but when it comes to raising money for our causes, we take things very seriously.

To give you an idea, here are just some of our costs (NB some are approximated as they haven't been finalised yet):

  • Venue hire: £35 (per show)
  • Microphone hire: £50 per cast member
  • Show T-shirts for cast/crew/band and tech team : £5 (per tshirt)
  • Materials for props/costumes: £150
  • Printing costs (posters/tickets/programmes): £150

Rewards

Check out some of our rewards to say a big thank you to everyone who supports us. These are cumulative, so the more you donate, the more rewards you get!! But the biggest reward will be that warm fuzzy feeling knowing that you have helped clothe a cast member and allow their lovely singing voice to be heard by all... Without you all this would not be possible, so THANK YOU! 

Had an idea for something you'd like us to do in return for some of your hard earned monies?? Let us know, and we might just be able to do it. No guarantees, but we'll do our utmost to please. We're those kind of people. FACT. Send us an email, and we'll see what we can do... Special recordings, shout outs at shows, VIP treatment of someone coming to see the show. If you can think of it, we'll see if we can do it.

Pledge £3 or more

For £3 we'll put you your own personalised message in the programme, whether that be a loving message of support or an embarassing retort to your favourite member of the revue company, to the team in general, or to a member of the audience. Just make sure it's not too rude or obscene and is no more than 250 characters. We'll even try and read out some of our favourites at the shows. (NB if you want a copy of the programme and you're not going to be at the show, this can be arranged for a small fee)

Pledge £8 or more

For just £8 (the amount it costs approximately to pay for a microphone for a cast member for just one show) we'll send you an exclusive souvenir copy of the entire Medics Revue Company 2014 with a personalised thank you message from us. You could keep this forever and always, or send it as a gift. We're an attractive lot, so it's sure to compliment any mantelpiece, hallway or even bedside table, and guaranteed to inspire you to greatness!

Pledge £12 or more

For £12 you'll get a limited edition Sherdoc poster, signed by our directors with a personalised message from them (with their talent they're sure to make it big in the not too distant future, so even if you think this isn't for you just think of the potential future market value). Remember, you'll also get a photo of the whole Revue company, and a complimentary message in the programme, because you love us, and we love you!

Pledge £20 or more

For £20 we'll record you a personalised all singing, all dancing video message from our fabulously talented cast. You know we're awesome, but how much more awesome would this be. This is one of those money can't buy rewards (technically not true, we'll do nearly anything to get more funds for our fantastic charities) that you'll be showing to your grandchildren in years to come. Seriously. And of course, we'll throw in the signed poster, the company picture AND the message in the programme. Cause we're just that lovely.
