Amid the distractions of social media and computer games, young people need something that will stretch their minds and hone their techniques of self-expression.
PlaystoSee is all about encouraging enthusiasm for the performing arts and developing critical appreciation.
Playstosee.com is a showcase for talent, particularly young talent, allowing them a platform to share their knowledge and appreciation of drama, musicals, opera, comedy, cabaret, ballet and even the circus. Our reach is truly global so our reviewers have the pleasure of knowing that their reviews will be read by people around the world.
We need sponsors in order to expand our network of contributors and our connections with theatres and cultural organisations around the world.
No sum is too small.
Thank you for your support!
