The Amanda (Saoirse) Show

Who are you?
Scream for Ireland is an alternative theatre company founded by Saoirse Siné in 2018 as a direct reaction to the lack of experimental, audience-based, safe, positive theatre. Under this title, various small scale productions have taken place. We now have a script written with extreme care, research and passion that has attracted a powerful team. We want to create an incredible, highly professional and enjoyable show. But unfortunately, this play is simply too... let's just say "punk rock" for council funding.
So what's going on?
We need funds to produce Scream for Ireland's most ambitious production to date, "The Amanda (Saoirse) Show".
The show will take place May 26th, 27th and 28th in the dlr LexIcon theatre space in Dun Laoghaire.
We are asking for 2650 Euro, a modest fee that will cover the necessities allowing full profit share for our creative team, leaving no one out of pocket. We have a fantastic team attached, including seven performers, our own composer, director, choreographer, set designer, lighting designer and more! We all believe this show can and will be amazing; we just need your help!
What is the show?
Help Saoirse Siné live out her dream as we recreate some of The Amanda Show's iconic skits... with a twist.
This show will deal with the darkness that comes with child fame and the blind eye often turned to struggling child stars. Focusing on Amanda Bynes’ life and career, we will delve into conservatorships, unethical production protocols and the dubious people surrounding Amanda for her entire life.
This show is a result of hours and hours of work, separating the conspiracy theories and media circus from the facts of Amanda’s life. We want to tell audiences the unheard stories from behind-the scenes of The Amanda Show, and encourage us all to push for changes in the industry.
You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll scream.
What will the money go towards?
Your financial support will be put to practical use and allow the production to be everything we want it to be! The designers and production crew have budgeted costs for maximum transparency, so you can see below how your money will be put to practical use for the production.
