Hopefully you have heard by now that the Council voted to sell the land to the Riverlea Theatre and Arts Centre Inc for $350 000! We have paid the deposit and the contract is now unconditional.
Whilst this is less than the original price, we do not have surplus funds, as some funders chose to reduce their grants proportionately. But we do have enough, and your kind donations were critical to that. So thank you again, very very much!
Now that the sale is unconditional we are busy with two things -
1. Getting our operational budget back on track, as some funders who normally support our day-to-day activities gave us our share for the land - hence we have been running low on operating funds
2. Preparing to have a celebration party! We'll let you know through here, facebook, twitter and our email database once the plans are laid. You are invited!
So in the meantime, please make sure you receive our email newsletter by going to http://eepurl.com/XY1bv and entering your details.
Opening on 14 May we have The Addams Family: A new musical comedy directed by Nick Wilkinson for Musikmakers (and featuring characters from the tv series and movie), and following that in July, Playbox present the hilarious comedy Bullshot Crummond. We do hope you can join us for one of these. Tickets can be booked via iticket.
Thanks again for your wonderful support.
