About the Show
“[Siguenza] is inspired by rebels and change makers...fighting back against the politics of fear and misinformation.” –San Diego Magazine
“You know a performance is good when all the crazy, seemingly out-of-control moving parts add up to an infectious entertainment experience.” –City Beat
“This is democracy in action.” –Mayor Novak
Beachtown is an immersive theatre experience that invites you to actively explore democracy in action. Engaging in a dialogue about who we are and who we want to be, Beachtown will spark the kind of community conversation that we so desperately need right now. The radically interactive nature of this event means that no two performances will ever be the same!
As a Beachtonian, you are invited to bring a dessert for the potluck and join your neighbors for the 100th Anniversary Time Capsule Celebration, where your vote will help to decide how the show will go! During this town hall meeting like no other, we will reveal the special artifacts inside our city’s time capsule and ask you to debate and choose the artifacts that best represent the values our community holds most dear.
Beachtown Mayor Steve Novak noted at a recent press conference: “Beachtown’s Time Capsule Celebration is about breaking down barriers and discovering our shared dreams for the future of our town. We need your help to define our ever-evolving community. Come ready to voice your opinion, debate and vote proudly.”
“Beachtown is a uniquely immersive experience - unlike any other play I have written. Each night the audience will determine the result of the Celebration. This interactive play will never be the same twice!
