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.
