Federally Funded Theatres Face Sequester
While audience development and ticket sales may be the most resilient way to fund theatre, it would be good if all sides in our government would actually govern.
The sequestration budget cuts that clicked in automatically after Congress failed to reach a deal before March 1 could lead to fewer roles for actors.
Theater executives who have been through government budget tightening before say it’s likely most organizations will see a percentage reduction rather than an outright elimination of their funding. Still, for small-to-midsized theaters a reduction of $5,000-$10,000 could mean one or two less Equity actors in a production.
