Archived: Brighton Youth Centre – Floodlights presents: ROCKY HORROR – part of B.Fest: a week-long youth arts festival organised by Brighton Youth Centre iCrowdNewswire - May 11, 2016 Floodlights presents: ROCKY HORROR A Film and Theatre project Brighton Youth Centre, Edward Street, Brighton, United Kingdom Project aim Talented young people working unbelievably hard to produce a shortened special feature show of ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’. We are a group of young people (aged 16-19) who have worked unbelievably hard over the past month to produce and direct a small-scale production on Richard O-Brian’s ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’ as past of B.Fest: a week-long youth arts festival organised by Brighton Youth Centre. Collectively we have worked on a huge variety of projects and events- at Brighton Dome, The Level of more! We’ve gained so much experience and knowledge over the past three years of volunteering in the VenueB events team, as well as gaining close friends The project began when a group of us realised that A) We have varing interests and abilities in theatre, and B) We all love Rocky Horror. We talked to the youth workers at Brighton Youth Centre and they gave us a date for the final show and permission to use the youth centre for rehearsals and the final performance. We got super excited and began work. As the project grew, it became increasingly clear that we needed money- for props, costumes, set etc. As we’re students and the youth centre is skint, we applied to arts funders- rest our final hopes of their decision. But, alas, the declined. But the show must go on. And now we ask you, kind funder, to help us in our production. At the risk of performing naked and with no set, £100 will go towards: – Set ( prop bed, curtains, ‘backstage’ hiding area) – Costume (corsets, fishnets, wigs- general Rocky Horror attire) – Promoting the event (flyers/ posters) – Postage of rewards – A few snacks (to keep the cast happy during rehearsals and meetings, as it is exam period for us all and we don’t want anyone getting dangerously exhausted) Any money left over/ if we overfund will go towards future production costs. We are not stopping here, so stay tuned! The final performance will be completely free: we do not make any monitary profit from the event, nor does Brighton Youth Centre*. The sole purpose of this event is to gain experience, build upon our skills, and (most importantly of all) have a fun time and give our local commuinity a fun time performing our favourite bits from our favourite musical. *Brighton Youth Centre is a registered charity and donations are (very greatfully) accepted. We’re just not charging people for this event, becuase it’s for the community and the youth of Brighton’s enjoyment 🙂 .
