Clear Space Theatre Inspiring All of Southern Delaware

Theatre-adjust-web“Clear space” refers to a focus on the process, knowledge, and humanity of arts performance: the idea that we find ourselves in what appears on the stage.

For those of you who do not know Clear Space, the Theatre Company’s mission is to inspire audiences, artists, and students through high-quality performances and educational experiences. A 501(c)3 cultural organization, founded in 2004, CSTC is comprised of  a remarkable team of full-time, part-time, and volunteer administrators, artists, and educators.

As new members of Clear Space Theatre’s Producers’ Circle, Bill and I are excited to collaborate with other community leaders in the development of a long range plan that will ensure a sustainable, year-round theater company based in Rehoboth Beach. We were energized by the conversation and exchange of ideas that includes educational and outreach programs,” said Kathy Sperl-Bell. “We look forward to helping CSTC be a leader in the vibrant performing arts community of Southern Delaware.”

The Three Facets of Clear Space are:

  • The Acting Company
  • The Arts Institute
  • On Tour

The Acting Company provides approximately 150 professional theatre performances each year. The talented casts performed for more than 15,000 theatre-goers in 2015 at the Company’s home at Baltimore Avenue or through ongoing partnerships at Milton Theatre, the Schwartz Center for the Arts in Dover and the Freeman Stage in Fenwick Island.
