We have achieved the first goal!
And we are immensely grateful for that. We want to thank all the patrons: friends, family, LIZZIE fans ... it is thanks to you that LIZZIE will have the minimum budget to carry out the production.
But we are ambitious, and we want LIZZIE to be even more spectacular! That's why we lost our minds and will offer you THE REWARD.
Therefore, we present the second goal:
If we reach 5.500 €, all patrons who have made a contribution of 25 € or more will enter the LOTTERY for a TRIP TO LONDON FOR TWO PEOPLE AND TICKETS TO SEE SIX, THE MUSICAL !!!
The lottery includes:
Round trip flights to London for two people
Two tickets to see Six at the Vaudeville Theater in London
Accommodation for two people for one night
THE SMALL PRINT
· The lottery will only take place if the second goal of 5.500 € is reached
· The trip must be between October 1st, 2021 and May 1st, 2022
· The exact dates will be chosen by the winner and the producers depending on the availability of tickets for the show and the situation of COVID-19
· For every 25 € contributed, there will be a participation in the lottery. Example: if you have taken the 100 € pack, you have 4 shares.
· If you are already a patron but your contribution is less than 25 €, you only have to contribute the amount you would need to reach this figure. This way you would get a share in the lottery. Example: if you took the t-shirt (20 €) you could make a contribution of 5 € and you would already participate in the lottery.
LIZZIE, the musical
LIZZIE is a rock musical based in the real-life story of Lizzie Borden, the axe murderer.
It is a powerful feminist declaration that opens universal morality debates. Our ant-heroin, tired of being abused, screams for freedom and makes a decision that changes her world forever. A unique all-female production.
The music and original script are from Steven Cheslik-deMeyer, Alan Stevens Hewitt and Tim Maner. Our adaptation to catalan will have a life band with Keyboard, two guitars, bass, drums and cello.
What's it about?
In the late summer of 1892, Lizzie Borden was accused of murdering her father and stepmother with an axe. Testimonies were muddled, evidence was incomplete, and Lizzie was acquitted. The musical delves into the mysterious mind of Lizzie Borden and speculates on the motivations she may have had: loss of inheritance, history of sexual abuse, overwhelming oppression, and madness.
In the musical we'll see what happened before the murders and all the juridical process that came after them. Whilst seeing what part had in the story the relationships she had with her sister Emma, the family's maid, Bridget, and her neighbour and confidant, Alice.
Who are we?
We're Alba, Ariadna and Gemma, three musical theatre actresses that love taking to life their own projects. What unites us the most is our passion for alternative musicals. Those that have you on the edge of your seat. That's why we decided to start our own company Què collons? produccions [QC?], (In english, "What the fuck? Productions").
Together for the first time, we were looking for the project that pulled on our heartstrings. With LIZZIE we finally found a story where women, at last, are the protagonists.

Where will your contribution go?
Producing a musical from zero it's not easy at all. Your contribution we'll be dedicated to one of these fields:
Set and costume Alícia, our scenographer, created a unique and bold design to bring life to the characters and the stage. Now we need the material and the hands to make it a reality.
Publicity We want this shocking story to get to everyone. Sharing is the key.
Technical requirements Lights, mics, life-band... LIZZIE is like an AC/DC concert and we can not fall short.
Acquire copyright As you know, LIZZIE was created in the US, and we have to pay quite something so the author's let us bring it to Barcelona. Don't miss out!
