SHILOH THEATRICAL PRODUCTIONS
2011 – 2012 SEASON
Shiloh Cancels Season
The Board of Directors of Shiloh Theatrical Productions (Shiloh) decided to cancel Shiloh’s upcoming season at the historic Lyric Theatre in downtown Stuart, Florida, because of economic factors. Shiloh had planned on presenting a strong array of Broadway musicals, including Annie, Man of La Mancha, Carousel, and Grease but instead decided to forgo this season and try to resume productions next season.
Shiloh is a non-profit community theatre that has served the Treasure Coast for over 16 years. In its history, the production company has produced over 60 Broadway musicals at the Lyric Theatre. As a community theatre, Shiloh has endeavored to bring the highest quality productions to the community at the lowest price and provide a theatre experience, free of charge, to hundreds of individuals, including actors, directors, backstage hands, musicians, and technical support.
Unfortunately, a steep decline in revenues over the past several years due to poor ticket sales and dwindling donations now requires Shiloh to take a more realistic, conservative assessment of its position in the theatre world. Consequently, the Board of Directors, in addition to cancelling this upcoming season, has decided to take the following actions: keep Shiloh’s status as a 501(c)(3) corporation active, vacate its rehearsal space and warehouse by the end of September and sell or donate its capital assets, including costumes and technical equipment, if it does not receive substantial donations by mid-September, use next year as an opportunity to build up its cash reserves through fund raising and other types of productions, and resume producing Broadway musicals in 2012.
In the interim, Shiloh wishes to thank the countless number volunteers who have been involved with our group over the past 16 years, and to thank the Lyric Theatre. And, of course, we especially want to thank those people who had the wisdom, courage, and ambition not only to create Shiloh but to sustain it over the years. Further information about Shiloh, including how to donate, can be found on its website www.shilohtheatricalproductions.com.
