   HORSE CAVE, Ky. (AP) -- A lack of funding has caused the closure of a well-known professional theater in south-central Kentucky.
 
   The Daily News (http://bit.ly/Zq6Psu) reports the Kentucky Repertory Theatre in Horse Cave won't present a 37th season in 2013 due to financial woes.
 
   Theater board president Lyn Taylor Long said officials sought funding from the community and businesses, and through grants and foundations, but it wasn't able to raise enough to stay open.
 
   The facility, formerly known as Horse Cave Theatre, had similar funding woes in 2009, but was able to raise the $350,000 it needed to pay basic expenses.
 
   Horse Cave Mayor Randall Curry said the theater was one of the town's big attractions and its closure will have an impact on the community.
