Come on City Council and provide a home for these people. At least these folks are doing something which is more than I can say for most of the gems that you provide with homes.

I've already made a cash donation to Play On. What's really sad is that in a town that is supposedly a champion of the arts that a group like this should struggle to get $20,000. Live Arts raised $2 MILLION for its theatre on Water Street, and millions were also spent on the Paramount.

And while "Dude's" heart is in the right place in his comment before mine, Play On has done the RIGHT thing by not running to government with its hands out and mouth open. We should encourage proper private funding of things like community theatres...and we do it by supporting it with individuals in the community.

This is a valuable member of the C'ville arts community. Please give as generously as you can but give something. If you don't have money to spare, go down and volunteer an hour or two to help them put their items into storage.

Sorry, but I can tell you that PlayOn's husband and wife team leadership has alienated MANY people in the theater community. They are notoriously difficult to work with and have ignored offers to help them market and develop the theater. Most people have never heard of PlayOn before this. They have lost a number of volunteers because of their attitude. It's a shame, because PlayOn is the only true community theater left in Cville, but some of their problems are of their own doing
