Nice piece here
Breaking even on an independent theatre show is tough work! Costs are covered from personal investment by the Producers, grants from the theatre company and if you are lucky from Government Grants, and occassionally from sponsors.
So we have decided to run a fundraiser on the balcony of the iconic Bondi Pavilion. Below is the information on the Facebook event site
Hope you ca join us on the day
The hit play ‘Bondi Dreaming’ returns for a third run in Sydney, and this time the boys have made it to Bondi, playing at the Bondi Pavilion from November 7th to December 3rd 2011, as part of the Tamarama Rock Surfers inaugural season.
Come and grab a cold one on the balcony of The Bondi Pavilion overlooking glorious Bondi Beach and meet the cast and crew.
