We're Fandom Musicals, a musical theater group from Toronto, and we are preparing for our first ever show, Fandom Hearts, a Kingdom Hearts parody musical. Taking inspiration from Starkid parody musicals, we've written an 88 page script with 17 original songs, drawing inspiration of the story from the first Kingdom Hearts game, with jokes, tropes, and characters from the whole series. It's a musical that pokes fun at stuff gamers love, but celebrates the parts of the game that makes it memorable.
PLEASE NOTE that this show is made by fans, for fans entertainment. We will not recieve profit from this funding. The entire musical will be posted online for free after the Toronto performances. You do not need to be in Toronto to see it.
WHAT WILL THE FUNDING GO TOWARDS?
We are also raising money to rent out the Terragon Theater, located in Downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada, where we would perform the show for a week to an audience of 100 each night. Once we hit the 50% we will introduce stretch goals to existing tiers that include tickets to the show from September 16, 2013 - September 22, 2013
Our total cost for costumes, including various wigs, and comfortable shoes comes to a total of $800.
The total cost for props for the show will be $545.
The total cost also includes the payment of $300 for our pianist to play live at the shows.
A button maker, and button templates for $260, which we will use to send out the incentives you guys donate to
The cost of the theater, The Terragon, which we will rent for a week for performances for a rental cost of $2825.
So our final total we're raising money for comes to $4730.00.
Donors of $5 will recieve:
- Our extreme thanks and support. Every little bit counts into making this show, and we couldn't be more grateful.
Donors of $10 will recieve:
- A copy of the soundtrack when it becomes available.
The Soundtrack will feature over 17 Original Songs from the show, including some unreleased songs, and a bonus track.
Donors of $25 will recieve:

The Pin Collection will feature quotes and memes from the show, and designs will be voted on by fans at a later date.

The Making Of Documentary will feature the making of the show from conception to the final performance, and include full song performances, and footage not seen on our YouTube channel.
- Fandom Hearts Pin Collection

- Copy of The Making Of documentary, including clips from the musical
- Special video shout out from the cast
The video shout will be a special video made with the whole cast featuring an original song incorporating anybody's name, who donated to this tier, into the lyrics.
All items above will be made available to anybody at a later date, with the backers for the project getting first priority, with the exlusion of the video shout out.
We are set on a Flexible Funding campaign, so if there's a chance we don't make our deadline, we will use whatever we have to bring you the best possible version of the show online. If we overfund our goal, we will bring you new stretch goals, so stay updated.
If you can't make a donation, you can still support us by sharing this campaign with your friends, by Liking our Facebook Page by Following us on Tumblr Following on Twitter and subscribing on YouTube, where the full show will be uploaded
Please note that becuase the majority of the content of the show is copyright to Disney and Square, we will not be recieveing payment from the performance itself. Any money we make from selling buttons and pins, the soundtrack, and the making of documentary, will go towards paying off any additional fees, touring the show to various theaters, or even a next musical if all goes well.
