The battle is on to save the Salón Varietés Theatre in Fuengirola.
The vision for the theatre was always simple, to provide a safe place for families to go and enjoy great entertainment and a top-shelf experience. They’ve been entertaining the local community for 35 years but like theatres all around the world, they had to make the difficult decision to close the curtains and postpone all shows until further notice, including their annual pantomime which often provides the lion’s share of their income.
This ongoing uncertainty puts them in a perilous situation as they receive no grants or official funding and rely on the money generated from “bums on seats” to fund all productions.
It’s serious – but you can help!
They are reaching out to YOU, the audience, community and volunteers to help raise funds so they can continue to provide homegrown live theatre for another 35 years and beyond.
By March 2021, they’ve got to raise 30,000€ to meet their financial obligations and they’re banking on your help to raise at least some of that total.
They are determined that, with your support, the shows WILL go on because YOU can help in so many ways…
* Make a donation to their GoFundmepage https://www.gofundme.com/f/save-our-salon-01 and invite your circle of friends, family, coworkers, and theatre lovers to pitch in too.
* Organise a Fundraising Event! This can be an actual event or a sponsored activity. This might be something that can be done online or over zoom or Skype. Whatever it is, the theatre team can help you brand it up and help you publicise it too!
* Give your loved ones a Christmas gift contribution to the theatre! The Theatre will make sure to give them a big “Thank You”!
* Become a Patron of the Theatre. For larger donations – please be in touch with the theatre by email on firstname.lastname@example.org, as they would like to make sure you are recognised in the right way.
* Share their info with others that might like to get involved.
Every gift will make a difference – no matter how big or how small and they hope, with your help, they can reach their 30,000€ goal.
The team at the Salón knows that times are tough all-around but they hope that you’ll consider what you typically spend in a year on arts experiences– and help today if you’re able.
To get involved email them on email@example.com, they will give you a FUNdraising pack and loads of support!
The Salón Varietés Theatre thanks you for choosing to support them and can’t wait to welcome you back to enjoy more wonderful theatre in 2021.
Until then stay safe, stay entertained!
