The Interplayers Theater is looking for the communities help as the community play house located in the 100 block of S. Howard St in Downtown Spokane now finds itself faced with a goal of raising 150,000 dollars by May 31st to keep the operation, in operation.
The sale of the building itself last year to the Jerry and Patty Dicker Foundation has allowed for big changes to the theater itself and got Interplayers out of 80,000 of it's prior debt's but while it's shows have made a profit the group has struggled to make payments on the remaining debts and building overhead.
So how does the Interplayers Theater plan to make up the 150,000 it needs to stay open? By looking to the community and especially the business community, a portion of the community that Interplayers had not looked to for funding in the past. Also thru the sales of the season ticket subscriptions, This past week Interplayers announced their 2013-2014 show line up. Tickets are on sale for all the shows but should the Interplayers be forced to close ticket holders will not be charged for their ticket purchase. Info on the 2013-2014 show line-up is at the bottom of this post.
Interplayers Theater has also invested in their building over the last few months making the theater a better experience for all. The construction work was partly done by the Dicker Foundation and used materials and labor that was donated from Garco Construction. In the recent past Interplayers has added/ repaired...
