Gaiety Grad Play 2021

My name is Mark Colreavy and I am a current student at The Gaiety School of Acting, graduating in 2021. 
Our two years of full time professional actor training culminates in our Graduation Play in June 2021. 
This is our opportunity to showcase our talent to industry professionals in the Irish theatre community, casting directors, our friends and family and the general public. 
There is 16 students in my year and the play is written specifically for us, highlighting each of our individual strengths.
The play is going to be a large scale, professional production on the Smock Alley Theatre Main Stage. 
As part of our curriculum, we must fundraise to cover the extensive costs for the production of our show. 
Normally we would host a series of fundraising events throughout the year however due to Covid-19 this has been compromised. 
Instead, we have set individual goals to raise money for the show.

For my fundraiser I am going to set myself several challenges to complete before June 2021.
For my first challenge I am going to do a swim in the freezing cold sea on Christmas Day!
My fellow classmates are all going to swim on the same day in the various parts of the country (and world!) that they call home.  

I would really appreciate your support on my campaign to raise the much needed funds for the production.
As well as investing in the arts during a truly unprecedented time, your kind contribution will go towards:
A professional writer and director
A professional costume designer and custom made costumes
A professional set designer and a custom made set
A professional lighting designer
A stage manager 
Hiring Smock Alley Theatre for the week long run of the show
My target is to reach €1,000 by June 2021 and I am determined to meet this target.
Any contribution would be really hugely appreciated. 

Thank you very much for your time and consideration,
