Wake Up Tomorrow is a theatrical production that will combine the passion and expertise of emerging Wellington theatre practitioners with the enthusiasm of youth from Active. Working within a mentoring framework we are creating a theatre experience that we will present to an initial audience of 300 people over 4 nights at the end of March.

Active is vocational support for young people with an intellectual impairment. With an emphasis on community connections, Active engages different groups in creating confident youth leaders. 

Everybody Cool Lives Here and their team have supported Active in the co-creation of many aspects of the production, from the content to the costumes. 

For a lot of the Active crew this is their first opportunity to create, perform and develop their unique artistic voices.

Your support will assist in making this experience as amazing as possible. Funds raised will go towards the set, costumes, prop's as well as pay for technical elements, such as lighting and sound equipment.

Directed by Sherilee Kahui as part of the Master of Theatre Arts (Directing) programme, co-taught by Toi Whakaari and Victoria University of Wellington.

  • The crowd-funding goes wild.

    44 MONTHS AGO

    There were some big cheers in todays run after we heard that we've made it to 100%. All-or-nothing funding made a few people uneasy at the start of the process. All we've got to worry about now is stage-fright...

    The crowd-funding goes wild.
  • Thanks for everybody's support.

    44 MONTHS AGO

    We're so close now. Many people have contributed over the last couple of months and we're so grateful that we get to share it with Wellington next week. Today's featured person is Nell Williams who took most of this week off from her ministerial job to help finish our props and costumes. Government support, Yay!

    Thanks for everybody's support.
  • Production Week

    44 MONTHS AGO

    Today, like a lot of other days on the project we got our hands dirty (and some feet). We're not too far away from being able to share what we've created. Thanks for the support in getting us this far, especial thanks to those who are overseas and won't get to see what everyone's achieved this time around.
