Phase Two of our campaign to pay down the mortgage on the Festival’s company housing.
In 2022, we took a leap of faith and bought a small apartment building to provide permanent (and reliable) accommodation for our actors and other company members. We did this because we’d been having more and more trouble housing these folks, and we knew full well the festival couldn’t continue if the actors and other artists didn’t have a place to stay in Blyth.
We also realized our best strategy would be to pay off the mortgage on this property as soon as possible. Our mortgage allows us to make lump-sum payments directly to the principle on every anniversary date. Last year, our incredible patrons and member family helped us raise more than $52K towards our goal. We were astonished by the immediate and generous support.
This year, our goal is to raise another $52K by December 31st. Amazingly, we already have $17K in hand towards this goal, thanks to some amazing donors! Will you send a gift today to help us reach the total? You have the sincere thanks and gratitude of every actor, designer, director, stage manager and theatre technician who will ever stay in this residence.
