OUR 2021-22 SEASON BUDGET


Key among our founding values is transparency. To that end, we share with you our annual budget, as an organization’s budget is its clearest expression of its priorities. Producing professional theater is not inexpensive, but we consider carefully how we spend each dollar. And we are proud that such a significant amount of our spending is done locally, in support of local artists and local businesses. Thank you for your part in making it all possible!
