Hill Country Community Theatre
Announces Grant Receipt, Sponsorship Program

The Hill Country Community Theatre Board of Governors has announced it will begin offering sponsorships to area businesses for each play it stages to augment grant money it has received that provides enough funding to operate its physical facility for the next 12 months.

The grants, which are from an anonymous source, will total $50,000 through the end of 2011. HCCT has received half the money with the balance to be paid in increments during the next 12 months.

“We are extremely grateful to our donor for this generous gift,” said Maris Lynne Long, HCCT Board president. “But we still are faced with raising enough money to fund the three remaining productions of the 2010-2011 season, not to mention securing the financial support to continue to stage shows next season.”

To that end, the HCCT is launching a multi-pronged fundraising drive, she said.

“Our HCCT Guild is planning fundraisers and of course we will conduct our annual membership drive. But, we also are planning to offer opportunities to area businesses to sponsor one or more shows,” she said.
