GoFundMe Campaign

After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, The Three Ships Collective, with the support of Soup Can Theatre, is remounting our site-specific and award-winning adaptation of A Christmas Carol, and we need your help to make it happen!

We are delighted to be able to finally return to the Campbell House Museum and present the show in all its splendour. Having said that, this return has been especially challenging given the ongoing roadblocks and significant financial setbacks that the theatre industry continues to face as a result of Covid-19. By supporting this year’s production, it enables our Collective to:

1. Present the highest quality of work possible while also ensuring that our tickets remain fairly priced and accessible to patrons of diverse socio-economic backgrounds.
2. Compensate the artists that make up our collective for their effort and involvement.
3. Take extra safety precautions and measures for the benefit of both our patrons and artists.
4. Bring a little joy into an otherwise bleak year.

While we are fortunate to have enthusiastic audiences, ticket sales alone are not enough; the site-specific nature of the Campbell House means that our audience capacity is quite intimate compared to a traditional theatrical venue and limits our potential sales revenue – even with sold-out performances. Furthermore, we produce this show without the assistance of any major financial sponsors, governmental organizations, granting bodies, or other similar funding on which larger theatre organizations can rely.

The necessary expenses associated with this ambitious presentation are, however, no less significant than a traditional theatrical production and include:

· Venue and Rehearsal Space Rentals
· Period-Appropriate Costumes and Props
· High-Quality Masks and PPE
· Production Insurance and other Administrative Costs
· Photography and Videography
· Advertising and Publicity
· and more too numerous to list here.

For these reasons, we invite those who are able to support our production and the artists involved by making a contribution to our 2022 GoFundMe campaign by clicking the link below. Every dollar helps and no donation is too small!
