The Foundry still struggles to recover from the financial losses incurred from the closures during Covid-19. In addition, the venue has suffered hefty legal fees while defending our right to continue bringing artists and audiences together. Obtaining a recent Special Permit from the West Stockbridge Planning Board to be in operation, we received extraordinary sound restrictions. In order to prove compliance, we must purchase sound monitoring and recording equipment priced at $5000.00. Though The Foundry previously installed soundproofing material to address the abutter’s complaints, we must now purchase more materials for additional assurance. Even though The Foundry accepted the Special Permit’s severe sound restrictions, our abutter has filed an appeal of our Special Permit to Land Court in Boston. This legal process can take up to 18 months and cost the venue in excess of $10,000.00 in legal fees. As the world crawls toward finding comfort in gathering together again, the process is slow and ticket sales have suffered. Even as we all navigate our safety and health in the public arena, the venue depends heavily on the revenue of ticket sales to survive. The additional expenses above have created the need for The Foundry to again ask for help from the community we serve.
So many are lacking in funds due to the economy, war, oppression, and so much more. But we strongly believe that what The Foundry offers is healing and joy through the brilliance of performance art; an offering worth its weight in gold. We thank you in advance for any amount you might donate to help ensure the venue’s future.
The Foundry is now offering online eGift cards. Give the joy of live music and performance to a friend or loved one.
(Valid for all performance events produced by The Foundry. eGift cards can be redeemed via phone call or in person at our Box Office.)
