AN URGENT MESSAGE FROM BREVARD LITTLE THEATRE

Brevard Little Theatre (BLT) is at a crossroads.

We have survived through good years and bad. Our mutual love of community theatre has kept us alive. This year, BLT is on the upswing. Attendance is rising. Audience reaction has been outstanding. Volunteer support is growing.

But after 12 years of performing at the American Legion Hall, our lease will not be renewed in May 2020. This is either going to be our worst nightmare or our dream come true.

Our community is blessed with a vibrant art scene. Live, local theatre must continue to be a part of that. As you know, it is very costly to keep a community theatre running. Now we are fighting to survive.

A place of our own!

With a move now inevitable, we have begun exploring properties and have initiated conversations with community leaders. Our vision is to build not only a community theatre, but a theatre for the community. This will include space for performances, children’s programs, adult education, and collaborative projects with others who share our passion for the arts. Obviously, this project will require a capital campaign and the support of members like you. We must act quickly. If we do not, BLT may have to go dark for a time. If this happens, we will lose necessary revenue generated by performances, halt the amazing momentum we’ve created, or worse.

BLT has proudly entertained the community for 85 years. Please. Help us ensure that our community continues to experience live, local theatre for the next 85.

Here’s how you can help us today:

1. CONTRIBUTE!
    Either visit our Capital Campaign GoFundMe page at: gofundme.com/f/save-brevard-little-theatre, click on the
    donate button above, or send your donation to BLT, 55 East Jordan St., Brevard, NC 28712.

2. Find potential benefactors outside of the BLT family.

3. Host a fundraiser at your home or business.

4. Let us know if you have commercial space for temporary storage.

5. Volunteer your time to help support our fundraising and moving efforts.

6. Share your ideas.

 

Help us make the dream come true and save our beloved theatre!

Sincerely,
BLT Board of Directors
