Lambda needs loot

The press release calls it a “crisis in Lavender Heights.” We call it more economic downturn-style drama. But whatever it’s called, the news that Sacramento’s oldest GLBTQ theater company (and one of the longest-running in the country) needs cash to stay afloat is worth paying attention to—and donating if you can. According to information released by David Stewart, the current president of Lambda Players, the company needs to raise $21,000 by March 1 to keep its doors open. It’s asking for donations both large and small, and can take credit cards on the Web site ( Checks can be mailed to Lambda Players, P.O. Box 163055, Sacramento, CA 95816. For more information, call (916) 444-8229, or attend one of the performances of The Kathy & Mo Show/Parallel Lives, which opens at 8 p.m. this Saturday, January 16, at the Lambda Players, 1127 21st Street.
