Mayor: Plaza Theatre concerts do well

GLASGOW — Members of the Glasgow City Council’s finance committee reviewed the city’s revenue/expense control report for the past six months earlier in the week.

In looking at the report, Mayor Rhonda Riherd Trautman pointed out the Plaza Theatre was doing well financially.

“The Plaza is way ahead on their revenues, which is really good, from what we budgeted,” she said.

Revenues included in the report did not reflect ticket sales for the theater’s Travis Tritt appearance in February. Tickets for the concert, which went on sale Dec. 15, are selling “like hotcakes,” she said.

“We will sell out on that one,” Trautman said. “All of the real expensive tickets are gone … so that’s good news.”

She continued that the theater has profited from its larger events.

“We made money on Charlie Daniels. We made money on Jamey Johnson. We’re going to make money on Travis Tritt. Those are our three big city-sponsored events,” she said.

Trautman also noted that the number of rentals for the theater have also increased.

The report did not reflect revenue and expenses for the month of December.

“In January, once we get the whole quarter, we will get this to the whole council,” she said.

Committee members also asked to see a comparison from the previous year, which Trautman said she will present at the city council’s January meeting.
