Abstract

"Newsworthy" piece with a profile of Michael Bourque, chair of the board of the Children's Theatre of Maine, who helped the group overcome heavy debts and poor management by partnering with the Children's Museum of Maine. When Bourque took over as chair in October 2006, the theater's annual budget was over $450,000, and they had maxed out a $30,000 line of credit and had roughly $50,000 in unpaid bills. In August 2007 the two nonprofits announced a partnership and the theater moved into the basement level of the Portland museum. The theater has scaled back its operations and will use the museum's marketing, administrative and accounting services on an as-needed basis. In October, the theater will launch an annual fundraising campaign and Bourque hopes the museum affiliation will help attract donors.
