Courthouse Center Stage hopes to re-open in 6 months

Financial pressures have forced the temporary closure of the Courthouse Center Stage in West Kingston.   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."
 
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.
