Americus-- A historic Southwest Georgia theater is paying overdue bills.

The Rylander Theater's financial woes forced several scheduled shows to be canceled, and raised questions about whether the theater would stay open. The Cultural and Theater Authority plans to borrow money to pay old bills and get the Rylander back on track.

Chairman Jim Nelson says, "You know there are a lot of small businesses that do business with you and they depend on you paying the bills so we would like to pay those off so we may borrow a few dollars with the understanding that the money will come in the next several months and we will pay that loan off."

Any loan would be paid off with money from the city and grants. Chairman Jim Nelson says the financial difficulties of the Rylander have been overstated, and the Authority is even considering new shows for this year.
