This funding will be used to help to continue to pay our staff and necessary facility costs. During this pandemic, Puppet Showplace has lost nearly $250,000 in revenue and this grant will ensure that we do not have to make any staff cutbacks that will compromise our organization's future ability to serve our constituency. Despite the current challenges, Puppet Showplace has continued to make professional puppetry available to diverse audiences through virtual performances and workshops and this grant will ensure that we can continue to do so as well at continue to pay rent and other utilities necessary to maintain our facility, from which all virtual programming is broadcast.
