Santa Monica Repertory Theatre Fundraising with Free Summer Reading

The annual fundraiser for the nonprofit Santa Monica Repertory Theater will be on Friday, May 4th at the Ripped Bodice bookstore in Culver City. Presented as “Love is a Stage,” this ticketed event includes a night of entertainment as well as an exciting silent auction and raffle prizes. Light bites, beer and wine provided by Life of the Party catering. All proceeds support Santa Monica Rep’s Artistic and Educational Programming.

It is at this event that the titles and dates for the Summer Reading Series will be announced.

Since 2010, over 5000 Santa Monica community members have attended the staged readings, for free, at the Santa Monica Public Library. Last year, two thousand children and young adults from 6th through 12th grades attended readings and post-show Q&As of The Grapes of Wrath, Clybourne Park, and The Diary of Anne Frank. Santa Monica Rep worked in partnership with the educational department of The Broad Stage to offer these experiences at no cost to the schools or the students: many of these children had never been to the theatre before. “It was exhilarating to see how captivated they were by a live performance!” says Santa Monica Rep Artistic Director Eric Bloom.

“Love is a Stage” will feature a total of nine pop-up performances, each curated to coordinate with the romantically themed rooms of the cleverly decorated bookstore. As guests mingle and move throughout the store they will be entertained by “spontaneous” performances of scenes from plays.

This Santa Monica Repertory Theater fundraiser will take place at the Ripped Bodice, 3806 Main Street, Culver City from 8:00PM to 10:00PM. Parking is available at the public parking structure on Cardiff Ave. Entertainment begins at 8:30PM. Go to the Santa Monica Repertory Theater’s website for tickets: www.santamonicarep.org.
