Whole Hog Launches Princess Mononoke Kickstarter Campaign

Back in July, Whole Hog Theatre announced that they were presenting the world's first theatrical adaptation of Hayao Miyazaki's Princess Mononoke, with the kind co-operation of Studio Ghibli.

The Studio Ghibli classic and epic ecological fable, written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki, will be faithfully re-told for the stage in Whole Hog Theatre's adaptation using giant puppets, physical storytelling and original live music.

Following the announcement of six performances at the New Diorama Theatre in April 2013, all tickets were sold out within 72 hours of going on sale.

While Whole Hog Theatre are delighted that the performances have sold out so far in advance, it has meant that many people will not have the chance to see the production.

In order to be able to stage additional performances of Princess Mononoke, Whole Hog Theatre has set up a Kickstarter page inviting people to donate to raise the funds needed for extra shows.

Their Kickstarter page includes a video (which you can see below) explaining more about who they are and what they do, their plans for the show, and details of some great rewards they're offering in return for donations.

These include show memorabilia and exclusive tickets to the sold out run.

In their own words, 'a little from many can go so, so far'. If you would like to see Princess Mononoke brought to life on stage, this is your chance to make a contribution.
