Written by Starkid Productions; Firebringer in 2016.

Join Jemilla and her tribe of stone-age pals. Every day, they work hard collecting nuts and berries. Every night, they take cover in their cave, hiding from the most fearsome predator alive - Snarl. When the tribe troublemaker, Zazzalil, goes out during a storm to test her latest invention, she stumbles upon the most important discovery in human history. It’s one that will take her on a whirlwind journey from omega to alpha, as she becomes - the Firebringer. 

This show is not often staged within the United Kingdom, we're super lucky and excited to be able to put on this production, and with you help we can do it justice as it deserves. 

Our story

Every year the Theatre Arts Society (TAS) puts on different shows at Lakeside Theatre. This year for the first time, we are doing a full scale Musical Production of Firebringer. Involving students from across the campus. As the final big production for this academic year, we want it to be as big and enjoyable as it possibly can be bringing in audiences from anywhere possible. 

Where will the money go?

The Theatre Arts Society operates entirely on a not-for-profit basis, and most of our funding comes from our membership, so all money raised through Click will go directly into the production of Firebringer.

  • £250 on Microphone hire (So we can hear our wonderful cast loud and clear) 

If we raise more than needed it will go on:

  • £100 on Costumes (Taking our cast back to the stone-age) 
  • £75 on Props (Making Fire, and lots of it. The little things that bring the show together) 
  • £75 on Marketing (People need to know about it some how)

If we raise over the final target the money will go towards turning our stage into an amazing prehistoric camp site for our stone-age friends.
