More Space

Good morning and Happy Friday!

This information was sent to us today and got us VERY excited at the prospect of expanding the possibilities for performance space in Boston. Getting and affording space is the hardest thing for small companies to do and expanding the pool and inviting friendly competition among venues will be good for everyone! Take some time to read this over - we're sending letters of support, and hope you will too!

The Task Force for the South Boston Arts and Cultural Center is submitting a proposal to South Boston to convert the vacant District 6 Police Station into a community arts space! Among many ideas for SOBACC, the task force envisions a 150-200 seat theatre and a 75-99 seat black box space.

Here's where you come in. We hope that you will write a letter in support of this project. Letters from as many individuals and companies as possible, on individual letterhead where available, will really help strengthen this effort. The proposal is due in just a few weeks, so the more letters they can acquire the better our chances of gaining a new venue for the community!

Please consider taking the time to write a letter and send it to:
Dan McCole
SoBACC Task Force
P.O. Box E44
South Boston, MA 02127
