Innovation Theatre Works in Bend has closed it's doors after four years.

 

Executive Director Brad Hills says it's been a very tough summer and he could see the writing on the wall.

"There are a number of reasons, but what it comes down to is primarily, we have not been able to stay ahead of the curve financially. And we're just seeing things go in a different way. Rather than building an audience, and building better financial support we have seen that dwindle over the last few months."

 

Hills says the number of theatre projects offered in this area also had an effect on them; there could be too much competition.

 

Hills says he doesn't see a revival in the future - but he does need to raise about $5,000 to pay some bills the company owes.
