About The Farris Wills

Hi! We're the Farris Wills, a group of students in the St. Louis, Missouri area who are striving to bring more free theatre to our city. Our group is built on what we consider ideal theatre: Low cost, accessible Shakespeare, put on by people who truly want to bring this to their community. As an entirely independent group of students, we stand as proof that incredible things can happen when people are just given the chance. It is our belief that Shakespeare is not only entertaining, but important, and the more accessible it is, the more opportunity we have to grow as artists, and to help the community around us grow. 

If you've seen our shows, you know that our little group has a whole lot of drive, and we put so much of ourselves into every show we produce. Unfortunately, we can't afford to do it alone. We don't want to charge for tickets since our entire goal is to bring more free theatre to the Metro area. Under our current pay-as-you-can model, we can't count on exactly how much we are going to be bringing in for each show. That's where you come in. 

As our loving patrons (and hopefully audience members!), you can help us create good theatre by funding the building materials for our sets, the fabric for costumes, rental costs, and prop purchases, as well as a multitude of other little expenses that are essential for us to keep doing what we do. You'll be billed about a week after we complete every show, and the money we receive from this page will go directly into keeping the group alive through normal maintenance costs, as well as funding our next show!

Thank you so much for helping to support independent student theatre in the St. Louis area. We hope to see you in our audiences now, and for years to come! Feel free to drop by anytime, admission is free!
Goals
$50 of $100 per production
Help us to keep our shows looking good by funding our props and costumes budget. With this amount, we won't have to pay out-of-pocket for all the colorful, fancy stuff in our shows that helps keeps the play moving! Now, we're fully aware that you don't need any of that stuff for good theatre, but it helps!
