TREYA’S LAST DANCE

A play for all those people who feel like they don’t fit in.
This one’s for you.

“You know when you meet a super-confident guy, you get a bit taken in ‘cos his hands are everywhere but he gives off that ‘ you love it, babe’ vibe?
Yeah.”

Her life looks shambolic, but Treya’s SORTING IT, alright?

WHAT IT IS

TREYA’S LAST DANCE will be a World Premiere Play at the Hollywood Fringe Festival 2015. A 60-minute joy-ride of the world through Treya’s eyes, we join her on a hilarious, poignant and completely un-PC journey through life, love and all the messy bits in between. Life is all we have, and Treya LIVES, embracing the ecstasy alongside the despair.

Sometimes, all you can do is laugh.

We hope you enjoy our sizzle reel above . . .
Come, watch and enjoy the show this June!

Treya's Last Dance - #hff15

Which bring us to actually making TREYA'S LAST DANCE come to life.

WHO WE ARE

We are a group of three friends who met in class at The Groundlings. Learning to improvise together is tough, and has somewhat prepared us for the journey towards putting a play on at the Hollywood Fringe Festival 2015!

We are:
Shyam Bhatt, Creator of Treya's Last Dance and lead actress
Brandon Drea, Director
Ceri Bethan, Producer and Founder of Four Rose Productions

We have a lot of fun working together, and hope to share that joy with you through bringing TREYA'S LAST DANCE to the stage!
THANK YOU for helping to make this possible.

WHY WE NEED THE GIFT OF YOUR HELP

We need to raise $5,000 to cover production costs and festival fees. Everything donated will go towards making this piece of theatre a reality, and getting it out there. No donation is too small - even a five-dollar donation can go towards equipment or props!

10% of everything we raise here will go to Face Forward LA, a non-profit organization, whose mission is to provide physical and emotional reconstruction for women and children who have been victimized by Domestic Violence or any Cruel Act of Crime.

Click here to visit the Face Forward LA website

We have broken these costs down below, so you can see exactly what your gifts will achieve.

Theatre venue rental (rehearsals and performances) $1,750
Fringe & admin costs (incl registration fee & printing) $550
PR & Advertising costs $2,200
Design elements (set, props, costumes) $300

And we like being paid as much as the next guy, but just so you know, we will not be using any of your gifts as payment for the actor, director or producer.

Your generous gift will be much appreciated, and will allow us to put on a production which is humorous, yes, but also provocative and thoughtful.
And that's not all, folks.
When you donate, or share our information in any way, please know that you are helping to raise money for and awareness of an organization that means a great deal to us.

Please help us hit our goal of $5,000 and be a part of the Treya's Last Dance community.

GIFTS AND REWARDS

We have rewards for our donors, set out on the right-hand side of this page. Please check them out!
Please be involved: donate and help us to make a laugh-out-loud, poignant piece of theatre.

And if you are not in a position to give financially, no worries - we've all been there! You can still help by spreading the word about this project with your friends and family.
If you could post a link to our page on your Facebook page, tweet about it, talk about it, laugh about it etc, we will be forever in your debt!

Again, we say from our hearts: THANK YOU, GRACIAS AND CHEERS, MATES for helping to bring TREYA'S LAST DANCE to the stage this June. We couldn't do it without your kindness and generosity.
