About the Show
“[Siguenza] is inspired by rebels and change makers...fighting back against the politics of fear and misinformation.” –San Diego Magazine
“This is democracy in action.” – Mayor Novak
Join us for some Democracy and Dessert! You are invited to the most unique theatrical event in San Diego REP history: The 100th Anniversary of Beachtown's Time Capsule Celebration!
Stand up and voice your opinion or sit back and enjoy the delectable ride in this one of a kind theatrical event. Imagine you live in the small local community of Beachtown. As a Beachtonian, you can stand up and voice your opinion to vote proudly—alongside your neighbors—what will go inside our town's Time Capsule to represent the values of this beautiful place we call home. Or, just sit back and enjoy the delicious debate, live music, and dessert from our community potluck. This town hall meeting like no other is about who we are and who we as a community want to be. Given this is Beachtown, you can count on a Celebration that breaks down barriers and discovers our shared dreams for the future of our town. #DemocracyAndDessert
“Beachtown is a uniquely immersive experience - unlike any other play I have worked on. Each night the audience will determine the result of the Celebration. This play will never be the same twice!" – Herbert Siguenza, Playwright in Residence
