Up The Ante is a not-for-profit company focused on producing incredible performances and creating new opportunities. Making work in this time is incredibly difficult since many theatres are closed and we are unable to bring in money from ticket sales.

Our regular costs can include but are not limited to:

- Company wages

- Rehearsal space

- Actors fees

- Video conferencing

- Facilitator fees

- Marketing

- Research and development time

- Costume/props

- Staff training

- Collaborator fees (composers, set designers etc)

- Technicians fees

- Technical equipment

- Travel costs

- Insurance


With little help available and no regular funding, we are incredibly grateful for any support that is offered to us at this time. We are currently offering virtual workshops on a pay-what-you-can basis since many people - especially those in the arts - are not not in regular work. Individual donor support is critical in enabling us to extend this scheme for as long as we possibly can, and your help will allow us to do this.

Your support means everything to us right now, and if you are able to make a one-off donation to the us, it would allow us to continually improve our offering, working towards the goal of financial sustainability for the company whilst creating accessible engagement opportunities for all.
