enjoyed our current hit show, Incident
at Vichy, as well as the
critically acclaimed shows Red,
The American Clock, Good People,
and Who's Afraid of Virginia

about how we manage with so few
seats. Frankly, ticket sales alone
cannot sustain us. We rely on
foundation support as well as
individual donations for general
operations. It continues to be a

Our initial fundraising goal was
$60,000 before the end of 2015 so
we could commit to the space. So
far we've managed to raise several
thousand dollars and have extended
the timeline into the early part
2016. We're temporarily using the
space at a deep discount for
dressing rooms for our large cast
for Incident at Vichy
for rehearsals. We don't know if
this will all come together before
another business rents the space
at full market value, but we have
to try--because opportunity is
