“What is happening with THE DISMISSAL???”
I’m so glad you asked.
World events conspired to pip us to the post in 2021 – we were three weeks out from rehearsals, had our cast and crew on board, incredible designs in place, and ridiculously encouraging advance sales ahead of a full campaign.
But we needn’t despair! Last year’s circumstances have become a classic crisi-tunity (that’s Simpsons for crisis and opportunity). We now have an exciting plan to make The Dismissal bigger, bolder, and reach more of Australia beginning in 2023.
And we want YOU to produce it with us.
This story of Australia can’t be told without Australians backing it all the way. As a grassroots Producer of The Dismissal your contribution will be entirely tax deductible, and comes with opportunities to access exclusive behind-the-scenes benefits. You will be an integral part of the team as we create an iconic theatrical event.
Any donation, large or small, is incredibly valuable and all Grassroots Producers will be credited in the show programme. Full details on donation tiers can be found below.
A National Tour
Our ambition is to bring The Dismissal to the ACT, New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia during a premiere season tour of around 30 weeks beginning in 2023.
The Dismissal tour will employ close to 300 artists and arts workers, and can reach nearly 300,000 attendees.
What Does That Cost?
The capitalisation for a production and tour of this scale is around $3,500,000.
You’re Trying To Raise HOW Much From Crowdfunding?
Not THAT much. Additional support will come from government, philanthropy, sponsorship and our own Dismissal war-chest we’ve been building.
For this campaign, we’re looking at a modest target of $100,000 but we’ll welcome the change to increase our goal if enough folks believe in us.
