With most theatres closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, there will be almost no Christmas shows on Scottish stages this Winter. But to celebrate the announcement of our new digital Christmas show production of Rapunzel, the National Theatre of Scotland is offering audiences the opportunity to win their own live fairytale experience.By making a donation to the National Theatre of Scotland’s new Future Fund, audience members’ names will be entered into a prize draw. The lucky winner will receive a visit from Rapunzel cast members, who will deliver a special fairytale performance at their home or at a suitable venue in their local area. The performance will take place at a safe social distance, potentially at the winner’s front door, in their garden, at their school playground, local hospital or care home.
Individuals who make a £10 donation to the fund will have their name entered into the draw, which will take place on Twelfth Night, Tuesday 5th January.
A separate competition will be open to businesses who, in return for a minimum £100 charitable donation, will have the opportunity to donate the prize to a staff member, or to a local school, hospital or community organisation.
With the live performing arts sector devastated by the effects of the Covid-19 crisis, the Future Fund has been set up to enable the National Theatre of Scotland to maximise the production of new work and projects for the benefit of Scottish audiences and theatre venues, and to continue creating paid employment opportunities for freelance theatre artists and technicians.
The competition will go live on Thursday 3rd December 2020.
