Now, as always, we are proud to say that The Village Players’ major source of income comes from subscriptions and ticket sales. (Village Players does not rely on government grants. ) Where does all the money go? Since the Village Playhouse is run solely by volunteers, including board members, the money goes back into the theatre, paying for such things as rent, production costs, royalties, maintenance & cleaning, hydro and telephone.
