$11,912 raised from 105 donors

$20,000 goal

Our 2024 DO MORE 24 goal is to raise $20,000 from 200 donors!

Funds raised this year will offset CSTC's on-going program expenses during our current 20th anniversary season, including hiring performers for the upcoming summer festival (including Jersey Boys, Rock of Ages, The Prom, and a range of late night special events), licenses and materials for productions with our summer campers, plus costuming, sets, and lighting.

In addition, we've working to build an even stronger level productions for you in 2024 - and our first priority is upgrading our existing analogue sound system. So, after the first $10,000 raised, 50% of all funds raised through DO MORE 24 will be allocated to the costs of upgrading CSTC's sound system to ensure the highest quality experience for our patrons in the years ahead. These funds will begin the pool towards our fundraising campaign to raise the $60,000 necessary to ensure CSTC can upgrade its sound board, monitors, microphones, assisted listening devices, and more before 2024 is over.

  • Clear Space Theatre Company produces more productions (13 a year) and more performances (nearly 140 last year) than any other professional theatre company in the state of Delaware?
  • In 2024, audiences came to performances at CSTC from 61 out of 62 zip codes in the state, from 36 states, and 2 countries. Through professional live theater, CSTC is the welcome mat that so many visitors to our state experience as their primary arts experience in Delaware. And audiences from across the state make us a destination again and again because of the quality of our productions and the quality of the customer experience we provide.
  • Since October, with only a few exceptions, every performance of every production at CSTC has been sold out - a testament to the commitment of audiences across our region to connect with great live theater.
  • Clear Space Theatre Company consistently offers tickets at the lowest average price of any professional theater in the state - a reflection of our commitment to economic accessibility for all.
  • Thanks to our commitment to identifying extraordinary early career talent for our productions, Clear Space Theatre Company acting alumni have gone on to major Broadway and national touring credits. For instance, two of our recent stars are now starring in the new Broadway musical The Outsiders this spring!
  • Our Arts Institute is unique in the state for its reach and for its diversity of programs - offering classes for children as young as 3 years old (Babies on Broadway) to classes for senior citizens (Legends) and all ages in between.
  • Annually, the Clear Space Gives Back program helps to build awareness and resources for another non-profit in Sussex County, by providing 50% of box office revenues for one production to a different partner each year. Partners have included Southern Delaware Alliance for Racial Justice, Beebee Health Foundation, CAMP Rehoboth, the Humane Society, and many others. It's the only program of its kind for a professional theater in the state!
  • CSTC  remains extremely resourceful in managing donor dollars for maximum impact. We bring 13 professional productions to life each year, plus an Arts Institute providing youth education for all ages with an annual budget of only $1.4M.
