MTPRIDE

MPTheatricals, Queerly Productions & ALPMusicals are thrilled to present MTPRIDE: an intersectional online musical theatre trilogy. The series celebrates Pride past, present and future through performances from Musical Theatre stars who are also members of the LGBTQ+ community.

MTPRIDE will be available for free as we believe it’s vital that queer focused works are easily accessible, particularly for younger queer viewers.  In this time we should be looking to bring queer people together, regardless of circumstance. Therefore, we’ve launched a Pay What You Can scheme for the series. We invite everyone to attend and, if possible, pay whatever they can! 

We kindly request that you remember how your money may have been spent if you were treating yourself to a night out at the theatre- and then remember that all funds raised are going to worthy causes!

£3- That massively overpriced packet of Maltesters you bought in the theatre foyer?! Pop to Tesco, get some for half the price, and donate the difference!

£5 - Most West End shows charge at least a fiver for their programmes: we are providing online programmes for every event.  Save trees, save money, and save the LGBTQ+ theatre community in the process with a donation!

£10- Have that double G&T you'd have bought from the theatre bar in the comfort of your own home, and donate what you've saved to support the LGBTQ+ theatre community.

£15- This is the price that you'd be charged for an event in the kind of Off West-End venue you'd expect to find this calibre of performance - if you are currently able, we'd hugely appreciate your generous support.

£20- You'd probably have had to buy a train ticket to the theatre - Stay Home, Support the NHS, Save lives, and SAVE THE GAYS. 

£250,000- (We don't expect any of you to donate £250,000 but IF YOU DON'T ASK YOU DON'T GET.  Cameron Mackintosh - In case you're here - SUPPORT LGBTQ+ ARTISTS AND NEW MUSICAL THEATRE!)


All funds raised will be split between two areas:

50% - We have selected two charities whose work we feel is particularly vital in our current climate:

UK BLACK PRIDE: UK Black Pride is Europe’s largest celebration for LGBTQ people of African, Asian, Caribbean, Middle Eastern and Latin American descent. UK Black Pride is a safe space to celebrate diverse sexualities, gender identities, cultures, gender expressions and backgrounds who foster, represent and celebrate Black LGBTQ and QTIPOC culture through education, the arts, cultural events and advocacy

GENDERED INTELLIGENCE: Gendered Intelligence is a charity focussed on increasing understanding of gender diversity. GI works with the trans community, and those who impact trans lives, specialising in supporting young trans people aged 8-25. They aim to positively impact the quality of trans peoples’ lives, through increasing trans visibility, community cohesion and engaging the wider world in understanding the diversity and complexity of gender.

50% - Artist Support Fund
MTPRIDE receives no outside funding and is brought to life by the kindness and generosity of creatives and performers wanting to be a part of it! This will go towards:
- Various Production Costs  
- Financial compensation for the artists contributing to the project by offering percentage split fees 
- Future investment/support and development of new LGBTQ+ led projects
