Arizona Theatre Co. facing $1M deficit

PHOENIX - Arizona's largest theatrical producer is facing a sizable deficit following a disappointing season with fundraising and at the box office.

The Arizona Republic reports that the Arizona Theatre Company expects to post more than a $1 million deficit for this fiscal year. It marks the fourth year the company has ended significantly in the red.

The company's revenue dropped to $4.2 million this year and contributions were down about $300,000 to $1.7 million. However, the primary driver of the deficit seems to have been overly optimistic income projections.

The company had planned on a $7.3 million operating budget based on expectations of a large gift from a donor and a sharp increase in ticket sales. Neither materialized.

There have also been disagreements among the company's board members, the managing director and the artistic director.
