Courthouse Center Stage http://ripr.org en Courthouse Center Stage hopes to re-open in 6 months http://ripr.org/post/courthouse-center-stage-hopes-re-open-6-months <p>Financial pressures have forced the temporary closure of the Courthouse Center Stage in West Kingston.&nbsp;&nbsp; The popular theater will be mothballed for six months as it mounts a $100K capital drive, according to board member Anna Prager. "Yes, I am extremely disappointed but at the same time I am hopeful that if we suspend programming and concentrate on fundraising we can start in new and better shape."<br>&nbsp;<br>Prager says they cut back staff so much they realized it was impossible to mount productions, raise money and tend to an aging, historic building all at the same time.
