PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
Civic Theatre is enjoying its most prosperous of 27 years. We expect to end the year with a substantial (for us) profit. For several years we have badly needed a home, a place where we can store and build scenery, costumes, and properties, and if possible a place to rehearse. Up to now this has been financially impractical, but with our improved financial position our goal now seems capable of attainment. We would like to buy a barn or similar building with a ceiling at least 13 feet high located in Ann Arbor, or within a couple of miles of the city limits. We would be very grateful to anyone of our audience who could let us know of the availability of such a building.
