Shine Funding goal reached!

Shine reached funding goal

We did it! We reached over our minimum funding goal of $15,000 for SHINE: The Musical. This means we'll be bringing Shine to Vancouver in July 2016.

Thanks to everyone who contributed and spread the word. I can't wait to get working with the musicians and actors on this great show.

Five days left to help make SHINE

We are SO CLOSE! We need to raise just $865 more to make our target but we have just five days left, and that's still a chunk of change. and we have in 5 days! Can you help us make this awesome musical production?

Yesterday there were many awesome people making $20-$55 contributions and that added up to a lot! We're so grateful for all contributors. Anything helps and remember you get tickets to the show for those donations (or some really great perks for larger donations!)

Video reviews from the 2015 first weekend

After the first weekend of Nightmare Before the Nutcracker, we asked audience members what they thought of the show and filmed their reactions. We had Beetlejuice (Steve Bradley), Edward Scissorhands (Chris Murdoch), and the Mayor (Red Heartbreaker) do the interviews.
