A Message from the Executive Director - July 2011

If you are receiving this message you may have heard that the Lincoln plans to stop printing and mailing our guide to members after this issue.  We want to assure you this decision was not made without serious consideration. The printed guide has been a part of the Lincoln for many years, and enjoyed by the membership.  Eliminating the guide is one step we can take to save money, but it is devastating to all of us to lose it.   We are currently exploring ways to provide a monthly calendar electronically.
The guide costs about $10,000 per year to print and mail in its current form.  Discontinuing the guide is essential to creating a budget that is responsible and  sustainable for the theatre.  Our mission is programming and preserving the theatre, and we remain focused on doing that to the best of our ability with the funds available.
There are still many important ways to keep in touch with the Lincoln!
- Check our website,, often!  It has all the up-to-the-minute information about Lincoln events and programs.
- Call our information line, 360-336-2858, for the upcoming events 24 hours a day.

- Please make sure we have your e-mail address to receive our e-mails (only once per week) with shows and updates.  This is another great way to stay in the loop about events and updates.
This transition from the printed guide will be difficult, but we are all committed to making sure our supporters know what is coming to the Lincoln stage and screen.  Thank you for your patience and understanding as we make this change.  Your on-going support as a member is still essential to the financial health of the theatre, and I hope to have the chance to personally thank you.  Please call me at 419-7129 with comments and suggestions.
