The Director of Annie Smith Dance Center is asking for assistance with the financial aspects of running a professional group of performers. She wants financial information presented in an easy to read format and a better understanding of the profitability of the concerts and the organization as a whole.
The Annie Smith professional group features three styles of dance concerts each year. Two of the dance concerts showcase a different genre. The third performance is a Christmas Spectacular, which is the most popular and is therefore scheduled every year. The table below provides information about expected ticket sales for the performances. Lower Orchestra Section (A) Upper Orchestra Section (B) Descriptions No. of Seats. Ticket Price Tickets sold per performance No. of seats Ticket Price Tickets sold per performance Hip-Hop Performance 150 $85 100% 450 $50 90% Jazz and Tap Dance 150 $85 100% 450 $50 60% Christmas Spectacular 150 $125 100% 450 $50 100%
Ms. Smith has prepared a tentative schedule for the coming season. The table below also shows the type and number of performances and direct cost per type of concert. Descriptions Number of Performances Cost per Dance Concert
(direct fixed costs)* Hip-Hop Concert 10 $48,000 Jazz and Tap Dance 5 86,000 Christmas Spectacular 20 22,000 Total Direct Fixed Costs $156,000
*Examples of direct fixed costs are costumes, rehearsals, royalties, guest artist fees, choreography, and salaries of production staff, music, and wardrobe for each of the concerts. This amount does not change with the number of performances.
Variable costs associated with each performance are shown below. Musicians $6,100 Rental of auditorium 2,500 Dancers' compensation 6,700
Annual general administrative and operating costs for the dance center are: Administrative staff $185,000 Insurance 25,000 Marketing 115,000 General office expenses 90,000
Ms. Smith wants the Dance Center to generate at least $300,000 in operating profit. What level of revenues does the performance group need to achieve to meet this goal? Prepare an income statement in good format to support the computations.
No Calculations necessary I am only asking for format and necessary formulas.
Thanks in advance!
