2020 ANNUAL REPORT

2020 Annual Report – Message from the Board

CCTC/HJT began 2020 with the conclusion of a wildly successful run of “Elf the Musical,” the launch of winter theater and dance classes, and the start of outreach programs at several local schools. Additionally, the Board of Directors and staff completed a strategic planning review and prioritized challenges and opportunities to be addressed leading up to our 70th anniversary in 2021. 

Then the pandemic hit. CCTC/HJT has always been the “little theater that could,” but last year tested us beyond all imagination. And you, our supporters, stepped up in this time of need. 

Your support helped us shift to online classes and performances and then resume in-person teaching, to offer programming for free and at reduced rates, and to prepare for the safe resumption of live theater. Producing Artistic Director Nina Schuessler, Education & Community Outreach Director Tammy Harper, Technical Director Matt Kohler, and other members of the CCTC/HJT family showed incredible flexibility, resiliency, and creativity in fulfilling our mission. 

As promised in the early days of the pandemic, CCTC/HJT staff and the Board of Directors worked day and night to ensure that your theater—Betty Bobp’s friendly theater—would be ready to welcome you back when the time is right. Our 70th summer is just around the corner. Thank you for your generosity and for helping enrich the lives of so many, and we look forward to seeing you in person soon. 

THANK YOU TO ALL OUR 2020 SUPPORTERS

2020 Revenues

2020 Financial Summary

2020 was a year like no other. Relative to 2019, revenues from ticket sales dropped by more than 90% and from education and outreach programs by more than 40%. Total expenses decreased by more than 50% due to necessary cutbacks in compensation for full-time staff and other expenditures. On the other hand, contributions from all sources increased by more than 50%. The generous support of individuals, families, businesses, foundations, and other sources—along with about $80,000 in forgiven COVID-19 relief funds from the federal Paycheck Protection Program—proved essential to continued operation throughout the year without depletion of our financial reserves. The end result was net income of about $89,000. This amount is almost exactly equal to the combined total of two grants received at the end of 2020 that have enabled the continuation of theater and dance classes into 2021, as well as construction of an outdoor stage and seating area in time for the Summer 2021 season.
