Clear Space presents musical preview of its 2021 show season
Clear Space Theatre Company is announcing its 2021 season on Saturday, September 12, at 7 p.m., with an hour-long, musical preview fundraiser.
While the pandemic led to the cancellation of the theatre company’s annual Bowtie & Barefoot Gala, it has not dampened the overwhelming determination to bring musical and theatrical arts to Rehoboth Beach.
“We are improvising in the face of this pandemic, and finding a safer alternative that will still be fun and help us raise much needed funds,” says Clear Space development director Stephanie Hudson Whitcomb. “The show must go on.”
The 2021 season theme is “Here We Go Again”. As Clear Space enters their 15th season, they are bringing back popular productions from the last ten years. “We are excited to revisit these shows as well as collaborate with the Rehoboth Museum and Beebe Medical Foundation on two productions,” says David Button, Clear Space artistic director.
A Secret Bid Virtual Auction will be announced during the preview. On Sunday, September 13, items for bid will be featured on the website https://www.clearspacetheatre.org/support-us/events/
One of the auction items will be a walk-on role for one of the summer 2021 shows. It will include lines, pre-show warm-up, costuming, hair styling and make-up. The specific show for the walk-on role will be announced at the September 12 event.
Bids will be accepted until September 25, and the winners will be announced on September 28.
Seating at the Preview will be at tables for two people or four people, rather than in row seating, keeping with COVID-19 guidelines. Tables for two are $100. Tables for four are $200.
For those who want to support Clear Space, but who do not want to attend a public event, a video link ticket to the performance is available for $75.
“We were disappointed to have to cancel our signature, fundraising event,” says board member Laura Mason, Ed.D. “But keeping everyone healthy is our utmost concern. We will be following all health guidelines during our Non-Gala Gala Preview, and hope that you can support us.”
