Introduction

Greetings and salutations! We are the Yokohama Theatre Group. We are a registered non-profit Theatre company active in Yokohama since our founding in 1900. We are a mixed group of expats and Japanese nationals on a mission to bring world-class Theatre to Yokohama, and Yokohama-made Theatre to the world. But we’ve had a recent setback and we need your help.

On the afternoon of July 21, 2012, someone hit the Yokohama Theatre Group's storage shed with a car or truck, damaging the outside wall of the structure. We don't know who did it and are unlikely to find out, so YTG will have to bear the cost of the repairs ourselves. It is for that reason that we're launching our first crowd-funding campaign.

 

What We Need & What You Get

We need to raise $1,300 to cover the labour and materials for the repairs. We need to do this as quickly as possible to avoid further damage to the parts of the structure exposed to the elements and to protect the precious costumes, props, lights, books, tools, set pieces, and other items stored inside. So we're turning to you, our strongest supporters, to ask for contributions. In exchange, we're offering:

  • customized thank-you videos
  • mentions on our website and programmes for 2012-2013 season shows and showcases
  • thank-you postcards

But most importantly, your contribution will help us save our shed and the contents.

Any money raised over our initial goal will go towards other improvements in the shed (better ventilation, a better lock), or other related carpentry projects (rehearsal room items like wooden blocks and movable walls).

If we don't make our goal, we will do the best with what we do raise to make a temporary patch until such time as we can afford proper repairs.

 

Other Ways to Help

We understand that not everyone is in a financial position to contribute. If you can’t (or even if you can), one of the best ways to help us is to raise awareness about the campaign by tweeting or posting on other social media about it. Let people know that you support us and our mission to make amazing Theatre and train great Theatre artists.

こんにちは!横浜シアターグループ(YTG)です。様々な国籍の人が集まり、世界の演劇を横浜に、また、横浜の演劇を世界に広めようと1900年から横浜で活動をしているNPO劇団です。このところ、あなたたちの助けが必要になりました。

2012年7月21日にYTGの倉庫に車がぶつかり、倉庫の外壁が壊れました。誰がぶつけたのかわからないため、修理費はYTGの掛けもちになってしまい、クラウドファンディングをしています。


修理費と労働費、合わせて10万円必要です。この事故のせいで今、倉庫の一部が今雨ざらしになっている状態で、倉庫自体の骨組みはもちろん、倉庫内の大事な衣装、小道具、大道具、ライト、本、セットなどを守るため、一刻も早く修理をしなければなりません。

みなさんの支援のお返しとして:

  • お礼のカスタムビデオをお送りします
  • YTGのウェブサイトと2012/13年シーズンのプログラムに名前を記載します
  • 劇団からのお礼のはがきをお送りします

目標金額をうわまったお金は、倉庫の改良とリハーサルに使うブロックや部屋の仕切りに使います。
