Friends, the Broom Street Theater building needs a new roof.
I wish we were coming to you with better news. A few weeks ago, we discovered that we have a couple of leaks, and some ceiling water damage. The roof is 30 years old, and we’re going to have to do a rip and replace.
We had hoped to get through 2020 without having to ask for money. Our plan was to keep the lights off and remain quietly in hibernation until we’re ready to welcome the audience back.
Unfortunately, we need to pass the basket. With the loss of ticket revenue, and this new emergency expense, our once-stable financial situation is now precarious. We know in this pandemic year that there are a lot of worthy causes competing for your dollar.
Broom Street Theater has been a part of the Madison arts landscape for over half a century. We’re produced over 300 original shows in that time. We’ve had alumni go on to win Tonys and Oscars. Couples have met and married during Broom Street shows. Broom Streeters have gone on to found theater companies all over the world.
