Loans By Kathy: Save Theatre in the Square - Marietta, GA

Save Theatre in the Square - Marietta, GA

This was in an email sent to the members of the Marietta Business Association, I have been a member for the last 5 years. The Marietta Business Association is a group of business professionals with a definite purpose in mind, to help local businesses prosper.  The Marietta Business Association also supports the community and non-profit organizations.  In the past we have worked on the Farmer's Market, Art in the Park, and the Turkey Trot.  Now it is time for us to help another organization in the community.


I thoroughly enjoy Theatre in the Square.  I have found the productions to be well done, and extremely affordable.  It is a great way to introduce the family to a live production.


Here was the email:


"The Square needs your help! As many of you know Theatre in the Square is in dire straits. On March 16, Theatre in the Square, a cornerstone of downtown Marietta for the last 30 years, may be forced to close its doors.


The Theatre has not been able to pay Landlord, Councilman Philip Goldstein, for over a year. Thankfully Mr. Goldstein has tried to work with the theatre and not shut them down. But... before paying Mr. Goldstein, the board is committed to making payroll and needs another $60,000 by 3/16 to keep key vendors from shutting it down. If Theatre on the Square is forced to go dark it not only means that the landlord, employees and vendors won't get paid, it will affect the entire square. The theatre brings people to the square each week. These people often shop and eat on the square. This is business many shops and restaurants rely on in order to survive."
The Marietta Wine Market is lending a helping hand and sponsoring an event tomorrow to help raise some needed funds. So, please, won't you come out and join us.
Join us at Marietta Wine Market this Wednesday, March 7and meet Pearl Cleage, playwright for Flying West, opening at Theatre in the Square. Wine Tasting 5-7:30pm. Proceeds from tastings this week will support the Theatre.

Founded in 1982 by Michael Horne and Palmer Wells, the doors to Theatre in the Square opened for the first performance of On Golden Pond on September 10, 1982 in an 85-seat space adjacent to Marietta Train Depot at 31 Mill Street (now Cool Beans Coffee). Presently located in a former cotton warehouse on the historic Marietta Square, it is the only professional theatre and the largest non-profit arts organization in Cobb County. READ MORE.

Kathy - I hope that the fundraiser was a success and that Theatre in the Square will be able to continue.  The M.B.A. sounds like a great organization to promote the well being of the business and local community.
