The funds raised will go towards Acting for Others and Help Musicians to support those in the arts facing hardship now as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, as well as to The Golsoncott Foundation, supporting individuals or organisations who have been impacted by the crisis to return with a piece of work once the industry begins to recover.  To donate please visit: www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/theatre-together

Paul-Ryan Carberry, co-producer of All the Web’s a Stage, said today, “The overnight closure of the performing arts industry – while necessary and important for all of our safety – has meant that thousands of our colleagues are without an income for the foreseeable future. We refuse to stand by whilst so many of our peers are going through hardship and so we’re delighted to be supporting three excellent charities: Acting for Others, Help Musicians and The Golsoncott Foundation, as they help those in need during this time and beyond. We’ve got a huge mix of entertainment planned – from musical theatre to comedy to dance and everything in between and we are really excited to share with you such an eclectic programme of work. At this critical time we ask you to please join our community on the day and support our industry by donating whatever you can. If this crisis has taught us anything, it is that stories and their tellers are intrinsically connected to our shared humanity, stories, no matter the distance, bring us together. The arts will come back swinging after all this is done – but we need your help now to make that happen. Join us on Thursday.”
