Changes to Barefoot in the Park
Aumsville Community Theatre needs your help! We are experiencing financial difficulties due to low audience turnout and high fees for Stuart Little. We are asking for your help.
Because of our financial needs, we must postpone our production of Neil Simon’s Barefoot in the Park, originally scheduled for late February. The new dates are June 1-17, 2018. This change allows us to focus on fundraising efforts for the first months of the year, while keeping the show as part of our 2017-2018 season.
Aumsville Community Theatre provides a live theatre experience for Stayton, Aumsville, Sublimity and the surrounding areas. We work hard to support a community of creative people who love to participate in the joy of live theatre (stage plays, murder mysteries, and staged radio shows) as actors, crew, and audience. We involve all ages; in the past year we had cast members ranging from 6 to 85 years old. In a time where the arts are struggling, we feel it is important to continue to provide these much-needed services to our community.
Ticket sales only cover a portion of the expenses of a theatre. We pay rent and utilities year-round for the Little Red Schoolhouse, royalties to the publishing companies for each performance of a play (more for musicals), materials and construction costs to build sets and costumes, as well as other fees such as insurance, music licensing and more.
Please consider becoming a member of the Aumsville Community Theatre for the rest of the 2017-2018 season, ending in June. We are a 501c3 organization and your membership/donation is 100% tax deductible. Membership includes the following benefits: your name listed in our theatre and in our playbills, invitations to our yearly Aummie awards and new season unveiling, and our undying thanks.
