Guthrie furloughs many full-time workers for week

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Guthrie Theater is furloughing most of its full-time staff for a week during January.

Guthrie spokeswoman Trish Santini tells the Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/1gLZuwH ) the furloughs vary by department and last for a week.

Santini says the theater's employees have had forced time off "a couple of times" since the Guthrie moved into its new Minneapolis riverfront complex in June 2006.

The latest furloughs come in the wake of the news that the Guthrie ended its latest fiscal year with a deficit of nearly $438,000.

The Guthrie has no shows this January, and the theater is closed to the public this month.

Santini says the theater is replacing the houselights operating system, cleaning carpets and refinishing the floors of the lobby of the Dowling Studio while the building is closed.
