THE LIMINIS THEATER BUILDING IS FOR SALE! Or as we in theatre circles refer to it,  the building that CON-CON built.

The convergence-continuum theatre company (Con-Con) has the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to buy the building which has been their artistic home for the past 15 years.

ANNOUNCING:
“PLAY YOUR PART – SAVE THE LIMINIS THEATER”
A Capital Campaign to raise $200,000

The convergence-continuum Board of Directors shares the following thoughts and information:                                                                                                                                                                            You may know that the current owner of the building, Clyde Simon, is the artistic director and a founding member of the company. He also lives in the building’s backstage apartment, sharing his home with actors, directors, and designers during rehearsals, performances, set builds, and company meetings. He single-handedly manages the 6000 square foot property, which is a full-time job in and of itself. It is a labor of love and he does not make any financial profit. The duties of owning the building have become financially and physically overwhelming for Clyde. At the end of 2016, he can no longer afford to continue as building owner and operator. Clyde will then be able to once again focus his energies on directing, acting, designing, and all of the things he enjoys as a member of convergence-continuum.

The time has come for Clyde to leave his legacy to the company which he loves, so he is offering to sell the building to us at a bargain price. He is not looking to make a profit from us – our purchase price would be the exact amount needed for Clyde to pay off the mortgage and cover closing costs (approximately $130,000). Not only is this price far below market value; it is much less than what he paid for it and the expenses he’s incurred converting the building into what it is today. Our goal is to purchase the building and establish a reserve fund for future facility expenses.

Unfortunately, Clyde must sell after 2016. If we can’t raise the money to purchase the building, he will put it on the market. Anyone could purchase it and the future of convergence-continuum may be in jeopardy.

The Liminis is Tremont’s only full-time live theater.

Play your part to assure that convergence-continuum has a home for many years to come.
