Save the NHS Musical!

NHS Theater Logo

If we’re going to save the musical, we need your help!

The Friends of NHS Theater have a lot of plans to improve the profitability of the musical next year–streamlining advertising, applying for grants, improving fundraising and more.

However, to actually have a musical next year, we need to replenish the theater account so that we can commit to hiring a musical team–at a fair wage–and buying rights to a great show.

To this end, we’ve started a Go Fund Me page with the ambitious goal of raising enough money to fully fund the musical, so that the profits for this year can go towards next year, and we can finally get back on track.

Please help us by sharing news about this campaign in any way you can–sharing on Facebook is certainly a great start, but all ideas and publicity are welcome.

Thank you everyone for your support!
