Sounds like the Lincoln Community Playhouse is having a tough go In These Economic Times™. Not that the Playhouse's troubles are new, however. It sounds like cash flow has been a problem for quite a while, and a couple commenters on the LJS story hint that there's some underlying grumbling directed at the Playhouse's leadership. Hmm. I haven't been to a show at the Playhouse in years. When I was a kid I used to go at least once each year. Often I would be inspired to go after the cast came to Calvert Elementary to promote the show. I don't recall much about the shows I saw -- though the blueberry scene from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory stands out in my memory -- but wouldn't you know it, I do remember eating popcorn and drinking punch during the intermissions. Do you have any fond Community Playhouse memories? Do you have any insight into the LCP's current situation?
