Blackfriars Theater wipes out debt

Blackfriars Theater, the smallest Equity house on the West Coast, finished 1992 with a large achievement: The company is free of deficit.

Blackfriars wiped out a deficit that had reached $ 43,000 in ’92.

Theater officials cited several factors in debt elimination, including budget-cutting, mostly in staff salaries; restructured management, notably the hiring of Dan Halleck as managing director; and success with the new season, which opened with an acclaimed edition of Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest.”

Not least has been Blackfriars’ acceptance of grants, most recently $ 9,000 from the local Parker Foundation.

The organization also received $ 15,000 from the Trust for Mutual Understanding to support Blackfriars’ plan to perform in Vladivostok, San Diego’s sister city in Russia.
