Theatre Cambrian is currently at a crossroads in its organization. For 27 years, the theatre has run profitably with the assistance of minimal public funding. However, for the past four years, the theatre has run into the following issues:
- Accumulated deficit
- Problems with balance sheets
- Managerial and Governance issues
Theatre Cambrian needs to identify what actions it must take to ensure that the organization continues to reduce its debt. This includes examining the personnel of the organization, the activities the organization produces as well as the governing body of the organization. Theatre Cambrian needs to find ways to minimize its deficit and maximize its profit.
Theatre Cambrian is incorporated in Canada as a non-profit charitable organization. The 8 staff of Theatre Cambrian is guided by a 9-member volunteer Board of Directors, whose mandate is to provide the people of Greater Sudbury an entire year of theatrical performances, professional musical concerts and professional comedy events. We are the only theatre company in Sudbury that is open year round and offer programming in both English and French. Theatre Cambrian’s performers are comprised mostly of young adults and teens that have an interest in performing arts. They perform on a volunteer basis and use Theatre Cambrian as a hobby.
