Like so many amateur theatre groups around the country, DSP has struggled with sky-rocketing costs, despite consistently producing outstanding shows.
Demand for high quality amateur theatre is still high, but the cost of staging a production can reach in excess of £50.000+ for a major production. Ticket sales alone just can’t cover it all, so we have to look for other ways of raising funds. One way is to ask for financial help from individuals and local businesses in the town and surrounding areas.
Without your help societies such as DSP will find it difficult to continue – and after 107 years performing in Doncaster that would be terribly sad, not just for our members, but for the community and local arts as well.
While donations of cash are always welcome, there are other ways that you personally, or your business, could help us survive and to contribute to put on shows for the pleasure of thousands of local people. Below are just a few ways you can really make a difference. If you’d like to discuss how you might be able to support DSP please contact us at email@example.com
Thank you for any help you can offer – we are very grateful.
No matter how small, the more raffle prizes we are able to offer at our events the more tickets we sell and the more funds we raise.
A bottle of wine, a meal for two at a local restaurant, a £5.00 voucher for beauty treatments anything and everything is welcome and we are always happy to collect.
If you have anything at all that you could donate please get in touch through our email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
