The Overtime Theater needs to move into a new home - and you can help!!!

About this project

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 Overtime performs only new works written by local authors and 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?

    WE WILL DO YOUR PLAY. Is it one you've always wanted to see but haven't seen in San Antonio? Or do you have an idea? Want to develop a play but just don’t know where to start or maybe never got around to writing it? Maybe the script has been sitting in a drawer for ages. Or maybe you’re more of an idea person. Well, no worries, because with a pledge of $5000 we will put a team of writers at your disposal. We will take that play from your mind to the stage, and you will receive a private performance of it. Bask in the glory for one night as you are the featured artist at the Overtime Theater in front of your friends and family. You will have created a play!! Also the walk on role in Cortez, the company hug, the personal recorded Jerdee greeting, the Denials Party, season tickets, filmed greeting, the catered show, the plaque on the seat, the Captain Cortez pass, the barbeque, the CD, the t-shirt, the postcard, your name on the lobby poster and the updates and show info.

    We want to name our theater after YOU. Give us $7,500 and for all of posterity the Overtime will perform in the Mr. or Mrs. Awesome Von Awesome Theater (I'm just assuming your name has awesome in it, because that's how awesome you are). In addition you will almost single handedly have brought theatrical wonderfulness to a whole section of San Antonio that needs it. Do you dare? DARE!! And, of course, you get the walk on role in Cortez, the company hug, the personal recorded Jerdee greeting, the Denials Party, season tickets, filmed greeting, the catered show, the plaque on the seat, the Captain Cortez pass, the barbeque, the CD, the t-shirt, the postcard, your name on the lobby poster and the updates and show info.

    For this we wanted to just write "anything you want" in the box, but our imaginations said that that might be dangerous. So, "anything you want - within reason." Feel free to email us to ask whether what you want is within reason. Also, we'll name the whole joint after you. It's gonna have a school, an art gallery and at least one theater inside of it and it will be named after you. You'll have to walk through the doors into the building with your name on it just to see a play. How wicked would that be? And, of course, you get the walk on role in Cortez, the company hug, the personal recorded Jerdee greeting, the Denials Party, season tickets, filmed greeting, the catered show, the plaque on the seat, the Captain Cortez pass, the barbeque, the CD, the t-shirt, the postcard, your name on the lobby poster and the updates and show info.
