About the Campaign

WE’VE REACHED OUR GOAL… but we’re not done yet! We still have a few stretch goals to hit to g. After that, any additional proceeds raised will go towards PHASE 2 of our fundraising campaign.

Our goal for this campaign is to raise enough money to pay the production costs of Matsukaze, our summer 2022 show. A simplified version of our show budget is as follows:


Description | 商品説明 Cost | 価格
Rent (partly deferred) | 賃料(一部繰延) 80,000 JPY
Costumes | 衣装代 35,000 JPY
Props, incl. 30,000 yen of Polaroid film | ポラロイドフィルムを含む小道具代      40,000 JPY
Set | セット代 50,000 JPY
Sound Equipment | 音響機材費用 25,000 JPY
Projector & AV equipment 40,000 JPY
TOTAL | 合計 270,000 JPY
Stretch Goals | ストレッチゴール
Transportation Honourariums for Ensemble Members | キャスト・スタッフへの交通費支給 60,000 JPY
Post-strike food for cast & crew | 最終公演後のキャスト・スタッフへの食事提供 * 25,000 JPY

* This may sound frivolous, but it’s a small and important token of appreciation to those who made the show run.

    Theatre is joy, education, salvation, and a way to understand difficult times like today. YTG has been offering all of these, especially through their devised works. And I want them to continue the work.

    My time with YTG is one of my favorite memories of theatre around Tokyo. Wish I could be there in person and give you guys more support, but for now here is a little gift from one of your old crews.
