Sydney Theatre Company (STC) has been a long-term collaborator of ours, so we were thrilled to accept the opportunity to produce their fundraiser ‘Trivia On The Green’. STC hoped the event would be theatrical, highly entertaining and seamlessly produced.
A creative approach was needed for this highly creative company, so we staged the event over a pool. An ambitious vision, no doubt, but we made it happen by working closely with architect, two engineers, and a builder to ensure everything would go perfectly. The 5-day installation involved pumping out over twenty thousand litres of water, which was stored in trucks and returned the next morning.
Comedians Bob Downe and Mitchell Butel, with the hilarious Downe doing a specially written opening, which had the audience in hysterics, hosted the dinner. Great food and great entertainment go hand in hand for theatre-lovers, so having Matt Moran and Aria Catering design a tapas meal to suit the chic informal nature of the night was very fitting.
Not only did we deliver tonally on the vision the team at STC had for the night, but also as is usually the case, a great creation resulted in some great financial results for the client. The experience surpassed the fundraising targets for STC, and we were proud to have been part of the team delivering such a result to a worthy company.
