San Diego Opera closing at the end of it's current season - quite a surprise.  10th largest opera company in the US and the third largest arts group in San Diego.

http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/Mar/19/san-diego-opera-fold/?#article-copy

After already hiring for the 2014/2015 season. A lot of contracts terminated. And after 49 years, too. It's sad they couldn't keep up for at least their 50th.

There is a petition to save the San Diego Opera, please sign it if possible: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/827/516/648/save-san-diego-opera/#sign

Shakespeare Santa Cruz
http://news.ucsc.edu/2013/08/shakespeare-release.html
(One friend made comment that there wasn't any statement from the actual AD of the theatre in this University press release - implying he wasn't given the opportunity.)

More:
http://www.santacruzsentinel.com/santacruz/ci_23948559/ucsc-end-shakespeare-santa-cruz-after-holiday-production

More still: A blog post/commentary, which basically accuses the University of blaming the closing on Equity actors (LORT D I believe?) It includes a response from the AD.

On a positive note... http://www.shakespeareplayon.net/
Thanks to donations and quickly collected and dedicated advisory board (with some famous names), Shakespeare in Santa Cruz will play on - as Santa Cruz Shakespeare.

I always wondered about this place as I would always see jobs advertised for it. End of an era

It is with an extremely heavy heart that the CAST Board of Directors announces that this production of Gruesome Playground Injuries will be its last.
Due to economic strains that have challenged the theatre to keep its doors open for more than a year, the board reluctantly decided the organization cannot support another operating season.CAST has accomplished so much in a relatively short amount of time – it is a three-time winner of Creative Loafing’s Company of the Year award, among many other laurels, and has received acclaim from critics and audience members alike spanning eight years and 64 productions as a nonprofit theatre.
Please help CAST wind down with the same quality they have offered their creative innovative theater to this community. We need your help with expenses to move, pay bills and actors and the production costs for the last production, Gruesome, June 6 – June 21.

The entire San Jose area has been abuzz today with the news. Guess that buzz hit a reporter's ear earlier this evening.

From my insider sources, SJ Rep won't be bailed out this time. It's a sad time in San Jose.

So - Ladies & Gents ~

In the spirit of moving forward and not dwelling on the past, ( and taking the hint from our beloved Kay), I am closing this thread and urging people to post the establishment of new and blossoming theatres on the thread:
