Please Read, Forward and Attend!

Dear Friends

Thank you to all of you who have written in support of funding our Theatre in the upcoming 2010 Capital Budget. Council appears to be listening, but we must remain vigilant and continue to demonstrate our community's support.

On Monday 18 January Council will begin debate on the budget, entitled What Matters Most, at 7pm. If at all possible, please attend - we need to pack the Council chamber.

So rally your 'troupes'! Dress artistically (we'll leave that open to your interpretation) or carry a sign of support for arts and culture. We want Councillors to know we are there. Together we can make sure Council puts our community and our economy first by doing what matters most: funding our theatre now.

If you have not yet written to Council, it's not too late to ask them for their support. Remember we want to pusuade, not provoke. For more details and a sample letter, please see

Please help us spread the word by forwarding this to your collegues and friends. And check for updates.
