Brewster Theater Company - Venue Rate Increase

A common enough problem today where there are a number of not-for-profit arts groups that are looking for a home. Brewster Theater Company is one of the most transient in the area - and one the venues they often use is the local school. Brewster Central School District has passed a policy that will result in a large rate increase. There is a meeting tonight, Tuesday January 16, 2007 - 7:30pm at the Garden Street School.

This rate increase would force the company to increase ticket prices by 50% to an average of $27 - $30 - which in this area is a lot for a community production.

They are hoping to get the board to re-evaluate this increase and will be initiating a petition to that effect.
