Jaffrey’s Project Shakespeare fundraising for England trip

Children’s theater program launches ‘IndieGoGo’ campaign

Project Shakespeare will be launching an IndieGoGo campaign on Saturday, to raise money needed to send students to England in August.

Project Shakespeare announced last summer that they had been chosen by the Royal Shakespeare Company to bring their student production of Hamlet to Stratford-upon-Avon to perform at The Dell, the RSC’s outdoor stage.

The original performance date was August 2013, however, that did not leave enough time to raise the funds necessary.

The RSC postponed the performances to August 2014 and ever since Project Shakespeare students have been raising funds and working to make this dream a reality.The total amount needed is $30,000. More than $10,000 has been raised due to the generosity of individuals in the local community. Corporate and foundation proposals have been submitted with no word as of yet. The IndieGoGo goal is $10,000.

To make a donation, visit the campaign’s home page directly at igg.me/at/PSattheRSC or by visiting IndieGoGo.com and entering Project Shakespeare Goes to England in the search box.
