The Theater at Lime Kiln has canceled its "A Classical Victorian Christmas," which means the theater will close earlier than originally thought.
Lime Kiln's Board of Directors says ticket sales for the "A Classical Victorian Christmas" were slow. The Board will now move forward with a dissolution plan for the Theater at Lime Kiln, which will conclude in March of 2013. The Board of Directors voted Friday morning to close the theater.
The theater needed about $400,000 to cover operating costs and repairs, and had previously given a December 31 deadline to raise the money.
"Today is December 31st," board member George Huger said.
Refunds for "A Classical Victorian Christmas" will be processed before Dec. 7.
The next step for the theater is to liquidate its assets. Huger said the Board of Directors did not want to make this decision, but financially they just can't go on. The property will revert back to the Ford family, which originally owned the property.
