About The Majestic
Majestic Theatre Management Board Statement
The Majestic Theatre Management Company has for many years strived to bring a wide range of artistic productions and arts education programs to the residents of Corvallis and the mid-Willamette Valley. This past year has been full of exciting programming – community theater productions, concerts, artist receptions, bilingual events, and da Vinci Days workshops and performances. The coming season continues this diversity of programming. The Majestic makes a significant contribution to the artistic distinction of the community.
As with all arts organizations, The Majestic depends on support from the private sector as well as box office receipts and grants to produce its season. A history of short-term Executive Directors and board turnover has made consistent programming and fundraising a continuing challenge. While this current fiscal year is ending with a modest surplus, The Majestic has experienced years of deficit budgets.
MTM is currently negotiating with the City of Corvallis to transition operations of the city-owned venue to the City Parks and Recreation Department. The Parks and Recreation Department will discuss options with the Human Services Committee at their meeting on October 7, 2 p.m.
MTM is devoting its current energy to meeting its commitments for programs and to moving forward in a professional, fiscally responsible manner that maintains The Majestic as a place for the community of Corvallis to come together and experience art. The Majestic will continue to produce shows and offer the venue as a rental facility. The show goes on.
