Dalmatians help Birmingham REP to raise £5,000

Steve Orme

Birmingham REP and Hearing Dogs for Deaf People will share more than £5,000 from fundraising activities during the REP’s festive production of Debbie Isitt’s adaptation of Dodie Smith’s The Hundred and One Dalmatians.

Eighty pence of every pound raised will go towards REP First and the theatre’s large-scale production of Woyzeck in June 2018.

REP First is a three-year campaign to ensure the REP can continue to nurture the region's young artists, commission new works and reach out to the communities of Birmingham and beyond.

Leo Butler’s new version of Georg Büchner’s Woyzeck will be staged in June in association with International Dance Festival Birmingham 2018. All performances will have captioning and audio description.
