DEAR FRIENDS OF THE ACTORSINGERS
This year the Actorsingers, Inc. celebrates its 20th successful year in bringing you musical shows. From the Mikado in June 1955 (we played to a few hundred of you) to this weekend (an audience of about 3,000); we could not have existed without your faithful and persistent support. This has enabled us to bring and share musical culture and living art with the Nashua community without ever conducting a financial assistance drive and at the same time keep the ticket cost to a very minimum. The budget for a typical musical is currently running between $6,000 and $10,000. As a non-profit organization making ends meet in no easy matter, and the financial success of each show is vital to our very existence. Inflation has hurt, and we are therefore in need of a new home. We urge all our faithful friends and patrons who wish to see us continue, to please notify us if you are aware of a possible headquarters for our
operation. We require approximately 7,500 square feet and are willing to pay a fair rental. Other details can be furnished. Please interest your friends in becoming patrons, thereby lending much needed support in our financial fight to preserve Actorsingers. Do think about this, and let us hear from you soon. Help us to provide good musical
entertainment and serve as an outlet for many talented amateurs, young and old. Please feel free to contact any Board Member.
