Help Kickstart extra Princess Mononoke performances

6:00 PM on 11.21.2012 // Chris Walden

You've got me curious, Whole Hog

If you live in the UK, you may have already heard mumblings of Whole Hog Theatre's adaptation of Studio Ghibli's Princess Mononoke. However, unless you jumped at the chance to purchase tickets, you may have ended up disappointed. Every ticket for the five day showing was bought within 72 hours.

However, if you are really bummed out about not being able to go, or you have only just heard about it and figure it'd be a great day out, then you may want to head over to Kickstarter. Whole Hog Theatre know that there are plenty of people out there that want to see the performance, and all they need is the money to keep the show running. There are many reward tiers to have a look at, but you can guarantee a ticket to a new showing (on the assumption the project is funded) for £50. This will also net you an exclusive postcard and your name on a special backers page they'll sort out. 

Even if you've already seen the original Ghibli animation, know that there are plenty of reasons to hit the New Diorama Theatre in London for this. For example, the music is performed live, and the many large puppets used in the event are made from recycled materials. It's certainly intriguing, so be sure to take the opportunity to see it if you feel the same way. I'm not much of a theatre guy myself, but I also said that before watching The Lion King in the theatre. I'm getting the same vibes from this (you should check out the puppets, they're very impressive!), and if Princess Mononoke is even a fraction as good as that, you'll be in for a real treat.
