Put simply, it means that we do not make any money from the productions or projects we engage in.
Q. Does anyone get paid?
A. Musicians receive a small honorarium in recognition of their skills and time spent. So does our choreographer.
Q. Does anyone else get paid?
A: No. People who dedicate their time on and off stage do so on a volunteer basis – for the sheer enjoyment of it.
Q: Do you have a Board?
A. We have a Board of Directors.
Q. What do you do with your profits?
A. Most of our productions lose money. It is very expensive to mount a show – royalties, rental of venue, costumes, sound, and many more things. People are often shocked to hear how much a production costs. The few shows that do make money keep the bank account on the positive side and pay for the money-losing shows.
Q. How do you get the money for your shows?
A. The shows are self-funding. That means the revenues come from ticket sales. Sometimes we are privileged to have sponsors who place adds in our program or help us pay for newspaper advertising.
