Many theatres are located in college towns that rock all year long and go dead in summer. What do you do to jump start the summer when the kids are gone?

Years ago I had a theatre in a town that had both a college and an army base. The base only had a few hundred troops during the school year, but during the summer it swelled to about 15,000 when the national guard used it for summer training. So when the college kids left and the troops arrived... guess what our booking changed to? Those summers were hot in more ways then one!

Here in Corvallis, when OSU lets out for the summer you can fire a cannon down the sidewalk and not hit a soul. I have even shut down during the summer years before. Since the sub-run house get torn down and turned into a parking lot, i'm thinking i'll try sub-run when the art stuff dries up. ya never know.
