Moffat theatre fundraiser enters last stage

A PASSION project launched by a Moffat theatre enters its final fundraising days.

The Studio Theatre have teamed up with Dumfries drag queen Devine Tension put on an interactive, high-energy one-person show.

The Passion Project, the show will bring not just an entertaining performance but will “contribute to a greater softening of the barriers to belonging experienced by LGBTQ+ people in Dumfries and Galloway” and spark understanding and acceptance in the wider community. With just a week to go until the fundraising deadline the Studio Theatre team have expressed their gratitude for all the donations given and hope that a final push can help them reach their £5000 target, in a statement posted online they said: “It’s one of the challenges of trying to make things happen in a rural area, and one of the issues we wanted to highlight with this project.

“Whether it’s getting bums on seats at the local cinema, a theatre performance or a concert, making the finances stack up can be a challenge. Add to the mix an unhealthy dose of crazy energy price rises and inflation and it all starts to look a bit fragile, which, for many rural creatives and small arts organisations, is exactly what it is.

“Any donation you make —no matter how small — helps us bring Passion Project to life.

“Thank you again for your amazing support. We really appreciate you.”
