Cornerstone Playhouse, in its 44th year of providing live entertainment has started a GoFundme campaign in an attempt to keep the theatre open.
The facility hasn’t exhibited a performance since “A Christmas Carol: The Musical” in December.
All of the Cornerstone’s income is from ticket sales, donations and small grants. And with no income, except for a re-grant from the Sussex county Arts and Heritage Council, bills have been piling up wiht no idea when the state will allow productions again.
Electricity, gas, water/sewer, internet, phone, state certificates, inspections, building maintenance and the copier lease are all overdue.
The playhouse only has 100 seats and it volunteers said itt will be difficult to stay open with a reduced capacity
