Funding

A five million dollar expansion of the theatre had been planned in 2002, largely funded by a ticket surcharge,[1] but in 2005 these plans were set aside in favour of a "Capital Renewal" fund for replacement of existing facility elements such as sound and lighting equipment. Also in response to civic budget pressures, the theatre has increasingly been reserved as a venue for school graduation ceremonies, squeezing out the performing arts.[2]

Organization

Although the theatre employs a full-time manager, most functions are performed by a regular company of volunteers, from ushers and other front of house duties to the stage crew, stage lighting and sound board.
