Stephen Moyer Vampire Bill
Fun True Blood News... Stephen Moyer, True Blood's Vampire Bill, Raises Funds for Moyer Kids Theater Fund
Vampire Empire received a great note from the Volunteer Fundraising Coordinator for Brentwood Theatre in the UK, representing Stephen Moyer who is the theatre's Patron. Steve Moyer, as we all know, stars as Vampire Bill in True Blood.
Stephen Moyer and his volunteers help raise funds for "MOYER KIDS THEATER FUND"... a way for the theatre to provide transportation and low-cost/no-cost tickets so all children can enjoy an enriching, live theatre experience regardless of income. However, the need and the expenses continue to rise for the 2010 season.
Brentwood Theatre is delighted to be raising money by auctioning a ‘call sheet’ for the internationally acclaimed BBC series, Extras, which Mr Stephen Fry has kindly signed.
One of the most memorable roles portrayed by Stephen Fry is in 'V for Vendetta.' He is great in that. He has a recurring guest role as psychiatrist Dr. Gordon Wyatt in the popular American drama Bones and will be one of the voices in Tim Burton's 'Alice in Wonderland.'
Brentwood Theatre opened in 1993 to provide a professional venue for the many non-professional drama and music groups in Brentwood, Havering, and beyond and is packed every week with a huge variety of shows. With a very flexible space accommodating 95 to 299 people, it is an affordable and much loved venue which is receiving acclaim all over Essex – and even has a huge team of supporters from America & other parts of the globe through its Patron, Stephen Moyer, the star of HBO’s True Blood.
In September 2005, the Theatre (an independent registered charity which relies on volunteers to allow it to function) launched an appeal to raise money to complete its backstage area which was duly built in 2008-9 and as part of that appeal, a huge number of celebrities kindly donated items to be auctioned in aid of the campaign.
With all the money collected to complete the build, it was not necessary to auction the items at that time, but with other projects now planned – including a complete repaint of the Theatre and a proposed new partnership with production company Beyond Images – the call sheet will be going on sale on eBay on March 15, 2010.
The auction will be on ebay-uk, beginning 10:00 GMT Monday March 15th and will run for 10 days. www.ebay.uk.co.
You can learn more about the Brentwood Theater at www.brentwood-theatre.org.
Theatre administrator Mark Reed said, 'I wrote to about a hundred celebrities and received many positive responses including Roger Moore, Steve Davies and Barbara Windsor, whose items will be sold off later in the year.'
Brentwood Theatre was recently voted the most loved business in Brentwood on thebestof.co.uk which reflects on the fact that not only do were provide excellent Theatre, but we also support people with special needs, learning difficulties as well as those new to the business of Theatre.
‘Our mission is to provide a vibrant, artistically challenging community theatre and the money raised from this auction will ensure that we can continue to grow and achieve our aims.’
Those looking to own this highly collectible item will be able to make bids on eBay-UK from March 15 through the 25, by searching for ‘BBC Extras call sheet signed by Stephen Fry’ or by using auction reference number 250595173673.
