Extreme Makeover: Basement Edition!

Project 2012-10-25 01:18:53 +1300

The Basement has come a long way, during the past five years the team behind this little theatre that could has struggled and strived to create a space for artists and audiences that is unlike any other in New Zealand. 

 
We have improved our venue heaps, we've added another performance space, air conditioning, dressing rooms, a toilet, a shower, more toilets (they may not be sexy but they are kinda important). We've also increased our funding and next year will open as a risk share venue where we accept a percentage of box office instead of charging a rental to use the space. 
 
In keeping with this brave new era in the Basement's history we reckon that it's time our long neglected foyer got a bit of TLC. We also want to soundproof the theatre properly so that all you lovely people in the foyer don't suddenly become off stage characters in the play on stage. 
 
We have wanted to fix it up for ages but all of those other things just seemed a lot more important, but its time has come! 
 
Help us put some love back into our place! 
 
We are looking to do all this wonderful stuff in January of 2013 so that it will be ready in time for the Auckland Fringe Festival. 
 
This is about much more than us having a fancy new foyer, it's about creating a place that our artists and audiences can feel comfortable and excited about coming to. It's about continuing to make our place, your place. 
 
So go on, pledge. We dare you xx

MOVE THAT BUS!

Pledgers, we did it!

You have been part of something special. It's a happy day for our little theatre and our community. We made it to $21,000 with 48 hours to spare and people are still pledging! For those of you who pledged over the $21,000 - we wanted to let you know that any extra dollars will go towards getting air conditioning in our studio space.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Thank you for your generosity and for telling your friends and for caring about the arts.

You made this happen, we couldn't have done it without all of you!

Lots of love, 

The Basement x

Nearly there!

Hey pledgers, 

We are so close now. $19280! Wow! But with less than 3 days to go we really need your help to keep on spreading the word.

A special shout out to the James Wallace Arts Trust who pledged a MASSIVE $5000 today. Oh my goodness, we are so grateful, you generous, wonderful human.

I think we're gonna get there and you will all be a part of Basement history. Thank you for your support everyone. 

In other news, Kim Dotcom has said yes to playing Santa Claus in Megachristmas!

It's a big week for us.

We'll let you know when we make it to $21,000!

Love The Basement xx
