A few months ago Steeplechase Productions entered into a four month management contract with Northwest Actors Studio to take on the duties of managing director, that contract ends December 24.  During this short tenure I was able to get a $12,000 tax rebate for B&O taxes (inadvertently overpaid) and a Microsoft volunteer who brought in $7,000 in matching money.  This has allowed the studio to catch up on its rent and utility bills but there is still some debt and a negative cash flow;  its future is tenative.  There are a  series of fund-raisers during the next few weekends:  student productions, play readings, video screenings and live music (see the new website: http://nwactorsstudio.com).  They need to bring in $25,000 by Dec 31.
I know a great many artists and companies have worked at the studio since its founding in 1978.  I am posting this here to let the theatrical community know that we are likely to lose another company, acting school, and two performance venues without a sumami of support.
The studio will also need a managing director as it is unlikely that Steeplechase will be able to provide continuing "pro-bono" services.  Welcome your comments, suggestions, and support.

Here's John's point of view.  I think he got it right.
