why are they always needing money? they have sponsers! the Lincoln is bound to be making money from the shows. Why don't they produce a financial report to the public and let's see what they need?

Call them and ask for one. You'll see sponsors and admission doesn't pay the bills, now that Alpha had to pull out.

Song of the mountains has never made any profit for the lincoln theater. Do you know how much it costs to produce that show for television? A whole helluva lot and a couple hundred tickets a show don't pay the bills. The only reason it's still going is because of the con job that's been done on the town to get people to think it's going to bring tourism. PIPE DREAMS!
