Fern­dale Reper­tory Theatre thanks sup­port­ers

Times Standard (Eureka) - - OPINION -

The Board of Fern­dale Reper­tory Theatre wants to thank all the com­mu­nity mem­bers who sup­ported FRT by buy­ing tick­ets for THE NO SHOW. It was a tongue-in-cheek cam­paign but helped make a real dent in the $50,000 losses FRT ex­pe­ri­enced as a re­sult of the can­cel­la­tion of both fi­nal shows of our 19-20 Sea­son. The six non-per­for­mances gen­er­ated $12,566 in rev­enue. Re­spon­dents had fun par­tic­i­pat­ing and many, get­ting in the spirit of the cam­paign, said they’d “never seen any­thing like it.” These are sad and dif­fi­cult days for non-profit arts or­ga­ni­za­tions and we thank not only our sup­port­ers, but all those who have ral­lied be­hind Hum­boldt County arts and artists to help make sure they can sur­vive this cri­sis and con­tinue to be im­por­tant eco­nomic re­sources for the county. When they re­turn, the arts will again pro­vide the live and lively re­sources com­mu­nity res­i­dents en­joy and de­pend on — espe­cially in hard times.
