Fanbase, 7/21/2011 - 8:52am "What this article lacks is any mention of business economics. The established theatres in town such as ATC and Theater Tulsa all rent or own their facilities. They have bills, they pay insurance to house their collections of costumes and set pieces. All these want-a-be professional actors and their companies all operate out of their homes and apartments and do not seem to understand that to exploit another theater org so they in turn can pay themselves is just ludicrous. ATC and Theater Tulsa have every right to demand compensation to repair and clean and maintain their theatrical inventories. It called business. If area shcools, churches and org can pay memberships to entitle themselves to access their inventories, why can't these "professional theatres?"
The notion that there needs to be a colabertation between the theatres to sustain each other only alienates the community in which they thrive who are willing to support them. There is a reason why it's called a community theatre. You remove the community's envolvement you might as well close shop.
