£25 could buy lights to keep our stars in the spotlight. “The smaller productions we put on at RCS can use around 100 lights — without the production essentials, the true story cannot be told on stage.” — Christoph Wagner, Lecturer in Lighting
£50 could buy one of our Modern Ballet students a pair of pointe shoes and ribbons. “Our third year BA Modern Ballet students can go through one pair of pointe shoes a week — it’s a significant cost.” — Kerry Livingstone, Head of Modern Ballet
A donation of £150 could pay for an instrument case to protect and preserve a musical instrument.
£250 could buy a year’s subscription to AVID video editing software for our Film students to allow them to produce industry-standard films.
