Golden Goose Appeal Charity Call Out

Theatr Brycheiniog and Jermin Productions are launching a joint call out to find an inspirational local charity partner for 'The Golden Goose Appeal'. The appeal will raise money throughout the run of Jack and the Beanstalk, this year’s Christmas Panto.

The Golden Goose Appeal follows the success of Theatr Brycheiniog’s 2016 'Christmas Cheer Campaign', which raised over £1000 in partnership with local charity, The Unicorn Service. As was the case last year, all proceeds raised as part of this year’s appeal will be shared equally between the two charities – Theatr Brycheiniog and the successful applicant.

Representatives of the selected charity must be able to be actively involved with Theatr Brycheiniog during the Pantomime run. They will be expected to provide information about their charity and assist with fundraising activities arranged by Theatr Brycheiniog. Funds will be predominantly raised through bucket collections by members of the cast and volunteers, which will take place at the end of each panto performance. In addition, a lucky number draw will take place at each performance.

The production of Jack and the Beanstalk will bring a fresh and vibrant professional cast to the stage in Brecon and will also include a talented chorus of children, drawn from Brecon and surrounding towns and villages. Following the overwhelming success of last year’s professional Christmas panto at Theatr Brycheiniog, this will be of huge interest to families in Brecon and the surrounding area.

Theatr Brycheiniog is a registered charity (Reg No. 1005327) and is keen to work with other local charities to help raise awareness and to promote the valuable work undertaken by so many voluntary sector organisations within Powys.
