The Everett City Council will get a briefing Wednesday night on the proposed 4-year renewal of the city’s contract with Issaquah based Village Theatre. The four-year renewal starts with the first year’s payment of $287,534.12 with the additional yearly payments tied to the Consumer Price Index. According to the city’s proposal there can be four or five different shows at the discretion of Village Theatre as long as the total number of performances reaches 65. The City of Everett has been working with Village Theatre at the Everett Performing Arts Center since 1998. The city says the Theatre set box office records during January and February of this year with more than 15,000 people attending the production of Les Miserables. In addition to the shows at the Performing Arts Center, Village Theatre also conducts the popular KIDSTAGE program at the former Key Bank building across the plaza. Village Theatre also handles management of the Everett Performing Arts Center including managing and renting the facility, providing box office services and scheduling events. Income from renting the facility and sales from concessions go into the city’s coffers and are not part of the compensation agreement. No word on if recent budget deficit cutting efforts will play a role in the city council’s discussions.
