Meet Our Executive Director
Clear Space Theatre Company is pleased to announce the
appointment of Wesley Paulson as Executive Director. Mr Paulson joins
the Clear Space team due largely to a generous Technical Assistance
grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts. He holds a bachelor's
degree in accounting and a master's degree in finance from The
University of Maryland. Mr. Paulson served for seven years as president
of Maryland College of Art and Design and comes to Clear Space after
six years as Chief Financial Officer for the General Board of Church
and Society of The United Methodist Church in Washington, DC. Mr
Paulson and David Warick (founder of Delaware Comedy Theatre and member
of the Acting Company) will emcee this event.

We’re rolling out a new blog for our patrons who want
the inside scoop on the company. So, take a look at Clear Space’s
latest BS – Backstage Session, that is. CSBS on
Starting in 2012, Clear Space
will offer a weekday matinee performance of each of its regular season
productions. Student groups have enjoyed these matinees for several
seasons, and they are now open to individuals or groups for whom an
evening at the theatre is not a possibility. Create the perfect
mid-week treat for yourself - live theatre, lunch, a stroll on the
boardwalk, and unique shopping opportunities - right here in downtown
Rehoboth Beach! (Check event
listings for matinee dates & times.)
In an effort to reach underserved audiences, Clear Space
Theatre Company will introduce a “Pay What You Can” Night. The 2nd
Friday night performance during each run of shows produced by Clear
Space will be open to the public to pay what they can to see the show.
Many theatres across the country participate in this
kind of initiative, and Clear Space is thrilled to have the opportunity
to reach out to those members of the community who may not typically be
able to attend live theatre. Whether it’s students who earn a small
allowance, large families for whom a show may be too expensive, or
those on limited or fixed income, “Pay What You Can” Night is designed
to remove one of the barriers associated with attending live theatre
and make the arts available to all.
“Pay What You Can” Night tickets are cash only, in
person at the box office on the evening of the performance. Tickets are
sold on a first come, first served basis and subject to availability.
Regular tickets (priced $25 for adults, $20 for seniors, $15 for
students and $5 for children 12 and under) may still be purchased in
advance online at www.ClearSpaceTheatre.org
or via phone at 302.227.2270.
The Clear Space Theatre Company is experiencing great
anticipation and excitement, and rightfully so. The group will present
its 2010-2011 season in their brand-new home at 20 Baltimore Avenue
(Beach Block), Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971. After five years of showcasing
their talents in various local venues, the company will take up
residence at the Celebration Mall location this fall. “This opportunity
has presented itself at the perfect time and we could not be more
thrilled!” says Executive Director Ken Skrzesz. “Our new home matches
seamlessly with our vision and will move our company to the next level
of professionalism.” The theatre has seating for up to 300 people and
can be configured in many ways, which leaves endless opportunity for
creative staging. Read
