Our goal, quite simply, is to present professional quality entertainment. With help from local businesses, we will build on 40 years of community success. Our goal is to raise and maintain $10,000 in sponsorship each year to offset the cost of rent and lighting for each of our 5 shows.
We are an all volunteer community driven organization. We do not pay our actors, directors, scenic designers, or costume designers. Our largest expenses are rent and lighting technical support to The Art Place—Mountain View as well as the royalties for each show. All other craft services (ushers, concessions, photography, set construction) are performed by volunteers.
Running a theater is EXPENSIVE! And lately, a lot of our operating costs have been going up. Storage, rental of our performance facility, and more. And recent musicals have been pretty pricey, too! Musicals are tough. Musicals are demanding. But, mostly, musicals are expensive! Some of you may not know that the royalties for a musical are often four times the cost of a straight play and the very talented musicians who accompany need to be compensated. So, here’s where we pass the figurative”hat.”
