70 It's been a big month for Available Light [Theatre]:

  • We received our 501(c)3 recognition from the Internal Revenue Service, making all donations (retroactive to our organization) tax-deductible.
  • We received a $5,000 Arts Innovation grant from the Ohio Arts Council.
  • With well-attended, critically acclaimed performances, CHURCH sold out its final performance – and has been held over for one more show this coming Friday, August 28th at 8 p.m. (It's pay what you want for tickets. Details for CHURCH are here.)

But this isn't about any of that.

Sure, it's been a big month.
