ST. PETERSBURG - St. Petersburg City Theatre is facing a significant cash flow challenge. The theater is in need of immediate financial support from both its membership and the community to continue operations and plan for a new season.

According to a press release, SPCT does not currently have the funds to pay an executive director. Megan Byrne has resigned. The theater is moving toward a larger volunteer force in the office to weather this storm.
