My school's theatre department is thinking about doing a cabaret style fundraiser to promote and raise money for our production of Footloose. We want to sing music from the show, do some dances, and have our improv team act. However, with a cabaret style, we need to set up tables and serve food . This comes the problem do we serve food in our theatre where it is difficult to clean, set up backstage where it is easy to clean, have it in the school's cafeteria where I would have to come up with ways to run lighting without a proper dimmer pack, or do we try off-site and pray that they give us a good deal on a rental. We are stuck on what to do. And when we figure out were we do this, what is the best way to advertise this and what should we charge for admission?
