Tapestry Theatre Company Shutting Down After the 2008 SeasonBy Laura & Mike Clark • Jan 7th, 2008 • Category: News
The Tapestry Theatre Company announced on Saturday on their web site that this year’s season will be their last. They will produce Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters First 100 Years again in February (our review of the February 2007 production is available), and Richard III in May. In their note to the theater community, they state: “We have found it increasingly difficult to recruit technical help over the past few years. I know that all of you can relate to this problem. With only a few people doing all of the work all of the time, we find that we want our lives back!” After Richard III closes, Tapestry will hold a garage sale of flats, stage boxes, props, costumes, and other items. Proceeds will be donated to the NVTA Scholarship fund for 2009.
Their complete statement is available on the Tapestry Theatre Company web site.
