Clear Space Theatre Company’s three-month Beers for Broadway fundraiser, produced by Crooked Hammock Brewery, earned the local nonprofit thespian group more than $7,500 to help ensure that their array of community programs can continue for the new 2018 season.

Rich Garrahan, owner and director of operations for the company, said Crooked Hammock’s success with Beers for Broadway stems from its three monthly special events sponsored by fundraising partners. The local businesses included Cape Gazette in January, Schell Brothers in February and Jack Lingo Realty in March. Garrahan said other generous businesses also contributed many silent auction items to bolster the earnings. In addition, every day during those three months, Crooked Hammock donated 25 cents from every pint of beer sold.

The support for Clear Space Theatre Co. is especially timely as the organization is preparing to open for its 14th season.

“Since 2004, we’ve been offering high-quality crowd-pleasing shows, and this year will be no exception,” said Sharon Smith, Development Director. “Mary Poppins,” “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” “Footloose” and “Fun Home” are a few of the upcoming stage productions for the 2018 season.
