This September Next Stage Theatre Company raised money for the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity during the company’s run of The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams. Throughout the production week, 5 volunteers from the charity attended the performance and helped raise awareness for this critical care service which provides help 24/7 to Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Gloucestershire, North Somerset and the surrounding areas.
During the run of The Glass Menagerie, The Mission Theatre welcomed over 250 audience members. After a first-class review, and a seamless performance week, Next Stage Theatre Company is pleased to announce that £125.82 was raised for the charity.
Next Stage is delighted to be able to raise money for local, and national, charities at any of the company’s forthcoming productions. This most recent amount brings the overall amount of money raised by Next Stage to over £16,000 in the last 15 years. This does not include any of the money raised by The Mission Theatre’s wonderful visiting companies, who also support charities in need throughout their stays. Please keep an eye out for future collections at The Mission Theatre during the Autumn season.
