Drama Club Fundraising Ideas

Lights! Action! Drama!!! Drama Clubs often find themselves in the middle of their own melodrama when trying to figure out how to fundraise for their club. Drama Clubs often need a fundraiser for costumes and props, set dressings and to pay for play rights or pay venue fees. Some Drama Clubs use their talents to help out a fundraiser for a worthy charity in their community. Some do both, but whatever the reason, fundraising can be hard work!

One of the biggest decisions is often deciding what type of fundraiser to do, but for a drama club, the decision can often seem obvious. Newark Memorial High School Drama Club brought Hogwarts to New Jersey with three showings of “A Very Potter Musical”, as a spring fundraiser. But not all Drama club fundraisers involve putting on a show. In Dearborn Heights, MI, when the Crestwood High School Drama Club realized that their stage was falling in, they turned local business giant, Ford, to hold a Drive One 4 UR School fundraiser. Fundraisers by other Drama clubs include fun nights, product sales, auctions, book fairs, restaurant nights, and on-line malls.
