moneymaker of the festival is the show, and having a theater in
walking distance is a big plus. might want to check on that with the
school. (we had about 600 people last year at the show, & broke
even... if you could sell 700 tickets, you'd have money left over for
also, we were able negotiate a better price for the fest based on the
fact that it was a free community event. once you start charging
admission, even if you call it "donations," it can cause your prices
to go up. and even though bill and i aren't working on the fest right
now, when we founded it, we had the model of lodi in mind (re: free
fest accessible to everyone, teaching an emphasis, no payment to
teachers or staff other than show admission and shirts if we had
extra, that sort of thing). so, my vote would be to keep the fest
free if at all possible.
just my 2 cents,
- Hello Damentos et all! It's official!!
