Treelah, a brand new family musical being developed by composer Daniel Loveday, is looking for crowdfunding pledges.
The central character ‘Treelah’ is half child, half tree with a beautiful singing voice that gives the listener courage, but everybody wants a piece of this amazing discovery from the forest and they are prepared to do anything to hear the song. The threat that overwhelms Treelah is a metaphor for the destruction of the environment. It will be performed at Tiverton, Devon, October 30-31 2015.

The producers are looking for crowdfunding pledges towards the cost of hiring rehearsal space between July and October, this will be £740. Daniel Loveday said “If you love musical theatre, or care about the environment, or want to help a community theatre project happen then help us put this show on by giving a pledge. The pledge will reward individuals with tickets or allow businesses to advertise in the programme.”

An exciting community theatre project, led by Patterns Theatre Company (a non-profit group), the show will be cast from in, and around, the Tiverton community and features predominantly young teenagers and adults, although there will also be small parts for younger children. The title character will be a puppet based on the winning design received from primary school children in the learning community. Auditions will be open to all members of the community, whether experienced performers or not, and will take a friendly, fun workshop format. It is also the intention to take workshops into local schools to encourage students who may not have performed before.
