On behalf of all non-profit organizations in the sector, the Royal City Musical Productions group is going to appeal to council's community and social services committee Tuesday seeking a review of the rental costs of civic facilities for such organizations.
According to information provided to councillors in advance, the group is proposing an rental rate arrangement linked to ticket revenue.
"Unfortunately, we are unable to price tickets at the same level as professional shows as there still seems to be a stigma around the fact that we are an amateur production company," states a RCMPI document sent to council. "However, we are being charged the same fees as a professional production."
