A heartfelt THANK YOU to the many of you who have asked how they can help the Footlights Theatre during this coronavirus pandemic. Here is how (it's safe, quick and easy). We have set up a GoFundMe page- please click here to donate!
Or you can call with a donation (747-5434). Or you can send a check (190 US Route 1, Falmouth ME 04105) or arrange to stop by the box office.
The Footlights Theatre has temporarily closed for performances 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. Box Office sales pay for 90% of our operating and production costs. Our monthly 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!
