Audition Info

In January of 2014, The Monterey Peninsula College Theatre Program lost 80% of it's operating budget and half of it's classified support staff due to state cuts to community colleges. This short film is an overview of the Theatre's importance to our community.

For Information on the budget cuts please visit the following links.

Please take a moment to read this longish file for more information about the proposal to cut funding and positions in the MPC Theatre Arts Department. Read Document

UPDATE!! As January 22, 2014 MPC President Dr. Walter Tribley and the MPC Board of Trustees tentatively agreed to a proposed compromise to their original proposal to cut 82% of the theatre’s budget ($500,000) and layoff all four of  the MPC Theatre’s Classified support staff, effectively ending live theatrical productions on the Morgan Stock stage. Thanks in great part to overwhelming public outcry and letters in support of the MPC Theatre program, this compromise proposal reduces the budget cut to approximately 75% and retains 2 of the support staff. While far from ideal, this will at least allow productions to continue, albeit on a much more limited scale than in the past. This also makes our fundraising efforts even more critical for our continued existence. YOUR continued support is very important!
