Kickstarter Appeal: Moving the Overtime Theatre in San Antonio

The Overtime Theater is Moving
(and we need your help!)

San Antonio's "theater for the people" has brought audiences innovative and accessible performances for five years. The city's only theater devoted to new work, the Overtime offers a space for experimentation and a home for writers, actors, visual artists, and musicians. In 2011, the readers of the San Antonio Current voted us the "Best Local Theater". From late night scifi comedy and improv to mainstage plays ranging from political theater to musical adaptations of old films, we bring people together to share stories and a funky homemade aesthetic you can't find anywhere

The Overtime will lose our current space at the BlueStar Arts Complex in May. While we will all miss this theater, we now have an opportunity to make the Overtime better than ever. We are expanding from the Overtime Theater to the Overtime Center for the Arts. In addition to the theater you know and love, we will offer late night cabarets, concerts, an incubator for new experimental work, film screenings, and gallery spaces for visual artists. We will also offer a second stage so that we can host performance groups from around San Antonio, Austin, and beyond. We will continue and expand our acting classes. The Overtime Center for the Arts will create an exciting new space for artists to collaborate and develop a hub for San Antonio's cultural and artistic community.

But we need your help. We need to raise $15,000 to renovate a new space and get it ready. If you love our shows, want to see more, and want to contribute to San Antonio's next big cultural hub, now is your chance to make a difference. We are starting a kickstarter fundraising campaign. Please consider giving as much as you can, but even $20 helps.

And, remember, the Overtime is a recognized 501(c)3 charity, so your pledge is tax deductible for every penny over and above the value of the rewards you select. SO what are you waiting for? Click here to visit the Kickstarter page.
