Last Chance to Back!

Update on 19 Mar 2014

Dear Backers,

As we approach the last few days of our crowdfunding campaign, please continue to spread the word to make this unique cultural experience possible. Every little helps! Small backings can help pay for actor's costumes and the props. Big backings can help us pay for the sound and lighting systems for the festival.

We will soon be in touch to distribute your rewards! In the meantime, more information about how you and when you will receive these can be found at the bottom of our campaign page. Do not hesitate to get in touch for more information.

Thank you for your continued support!

Extension of fundraising project for 15 days upon popular demand

Update on 10 Mar 2014

Dear Backers,

Our FringeBacker campaign has exceeded its HK$25,000 target! We are overwhelmed and hugely grateful for the support of the Hong Kong community!

We are still receiving several requests to fund this project and, with that in mind, FringeBacker has kindly approved our application to extend the project deadline by 15 days allowing everyone more time to support this unique culture experience whilst taking advantage of the discounted tickets and special reward packages on offer. The project will now end on March 25th.

If like us you cannot wait for the festival to start, check out our recent rehearsal photos which will continue to whet your appetite!



Thank you once again for your support!
