Keep the lights on

The latest casualty of the rough economic times is Images Theatre Company, a multicultural enterprise dedicated to producing life-affirming and historically aware shows in Sacramento’s historic Guild Theater. The company, like so many other nonprofit arts groups, has struggled as the downturn cost them both small contributions and corporate funding. Now, they’ve issued a plea for contributions to stage the annual Legacy show in honor of the Martin Luther King holiday, as well as to keep the doors open for future shows. More information about contributing—and contributions are tax-deductible, making this week a good time to give—visit the company’s Web site at
