WHAT IS THIS THING?
Hi, we are Kate and Frith and we are the creators of The Best
Possible Album Party That Anybody Has Ever Been To. We are proud to
say this is the longest title for a show that we have worked with,
therefore, we've got a lot to live up to.
This show is our opportunity to create a party within the
theatre. An interactive event that combines dance, original song
and sketches with two, larger-than-life characters, Karla and
Donna-Rose. Two latin soul sistahs who are ready to unleash their
particular brand of nonsense on New Zealand.
This is KRYSTOPIA, the album release party, the hot ticket, and
a night where you're out all night long (during a one-hour long
Alacrity Productions are devising a show that is a party;
pure, un-adulterated fun, silly, wild and over-the-top.
Sounds fun right? We just need a little bit of help to make it all
WHAT WE NEED THE EXTRA BOOST FOR:
We need $500 to go towards photography, poster design and
$300 will go towards rehearsal space hire.
And $200 for sound/lighting equipment.
You wouldn't believe the list of things these divas have requested
for their green room, so the more money we can raise, the better
the show will be. But seriously, we have a wonderful team behind
us, the more we can support them, the better!
