Dear Footlights Theatre Friends, Patrons and Supporters,

The Footlights Theatre has temporarily closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, based on recommendations from the CDC, Governor Mills and the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention. We are now completing our 7th year and this closure is devastating to us financially. This campaign is to pay the rent for a couple months so we don't lose the space. 

Box Office sales pay for 90% of our operating and production costs. Our monthly costs (less production costs) average $5000 with rent and utilities due on the 15th of each month and those expenses don't go away just because we can't open. Bottomline: No Cash Flow = Devastating Loss. 

So, if you are able- or know someone who is able -to help the Footlights Theatre during this challenging time, we would greatly appreciate it. Like you, we are taking it moment by moment... but, we feel confident (we know!) we will be back on stage sooner than later and "the show will go on" once we get the official OK.

Stay Healthy, Stay Safe and Love & Support Each Other... (from a distance) Oh... and WASH YOUR HANDS! 

With many many thanks... 

Michael J. Tobin
Executive Artistic Director
