Clairemont Act One Launches Kickstarter Campaign

Did you know Clairemont has a community theatre group? Clairemont Act One is a volunteer-run non-profit community theatre company in the Clairemont neighborhood of San Diego.  The group will be presenting "Crimes of the Heart" by Beth Henley on Friday, October 17 and Saturday, October 18, 2014.

This Pulitzer Prize-winning southern comedy takes the audience to Hazlehurst, Miss., and focuses on the reunion of three offbeat sisters – Lenny, Babe and Meg – after the youngest sister, Babe, is arrested for shooting her husband.

Clairemont Act One performs in the Northminster Community Hall at 4324 Clairemont Mesa Blvd., San Diego, CA 92117.

Because Clairemont Act One is run by volunteers community support is essential to the success of each production.  Funding is necessary for space rental, printing, marketing, insurance and other expenses.

For that reason the company has started a Kickstarter campaign with a goal of raising $750 to support the production of "Crimes of the Heart".

As of August 18th $395 has already been pledged! Clairemont Act One asks for your assistance in reaching our goal of putting on a professional production that will not only entertain but enrich our audience as well.

Founded by Katie Turner in 2011, Clairemont Act One has performed full length plays (including "Steel Magnolias" by Robert Harling and "California Suite" by Neil Simon) and variety shows, an evening of one act plays, and has performed for residents in local senior living facilities. NOTE: Clairemont Act One is a 501(c)(3) Corporation.  Funding can be Tax Deductible.
