Pitch A Fest: A Contemporary Dance Drama piece exploring the goings on at as music festival.

Up Right Theatre are raising £1200 to get an original dance/drama theatre piece to Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Help us get to Edinburgh to get new theatre out there!

We have already raised nearly £1500 with box office sales from other shows and help from the public of Carlisle attending different fundraisers that we have organised. But now we need your help for the final push. 

Up Right Theatre

Up Right Theatre are theatre company from the University of Cumbria. We are Performing Arts students from 1st, 2nd & 3rd year. 

In October 2014, Pitch A Fest was first performed at Stanwix Theatre, as an original dance drama piece. The piece follows the different goings on at a music festival. The people, the environment, the music, the alcohol and the other added extras that come along with it. 

We are now in rehearsals so the piece ready to take it to Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year. It is such an amazing opportunity for all involved and gets new theatre work out there. Without raising this money we will not be able to take this piece to Edinburgh and not have this amazing opportunity. New theatre is so important to keep the theatre industry developing and with aiding us to get there, we get to join the creating of the new age of theatre. 

where will the money go?

We are so close to getting there now, with only the last parts to pay for. We still need to may for the marketing of the show and the final payment of the theatre. The insurance and the music rights are also needed.
