Childrens’ Theatre Company cuts budget, season

The Childrens' Theatre Company has announced it's eliminating approximately 9% of its full and part-time staff positions, and eliminating two shows from its coming season (Ballonacy and Lord of the Flies) in an effort to trim its budget to a more sustainable size.

In a written statement to the press, CTC officials said these changes will result in an 11 percent reduction in the budget size of the organization, down-shifting it from $10.7 to $9.4 million.

This comes after a 14 percent cut to the budget last year, which then stood at $12.3 million.

Neither Managing Director Gabriella Calicchio or Artistic Director Peter Brosius were available for questioning beyond their comments in the printed release.
