The National Theatre want you to help them stage Follies...

It's not very often a major UK theatre asks for our help, but the National Theatre has done just that! Their production of FOLLIES, which will run from this June until next January is one of their most ambitious to date, with a cast of 37 and 21 live musicians creating a spectacular show in the world famous Olivier Theatre. With that in mind, and a big budget needed to make it happen, the National Theatre have asked for our help...

A page on the website states:

"The production is set to be one of our biggest; a cast of 37, 21 live musicians, huge choreographed numbers and over 200 staff and apprentices working to create this spectacular production. Creating a musical of this magnitude is a significant undertaking and your support is crucial to ensure the play is successfully brought to the stage. We would love you to help us make this happen."

"Gifts of all sizes are welcome and we hope that, together, we can bring one of our most ambitious productions to life, inspire audiences and do justice to Sondheim’s iconic musical. As a thank you we will keep you up to date with the production as it progresses and give you further insight into the world of Follies."
