Renovations push Overtime out of Blue Star

The Overtime Theater is looking for a new home. The community theater just inside the entrance of the Blue Star Arts Complex on South Alamo will soon lose a sizable portion of their space when a public passageway is built through the building the theater occupies, Overtime spokesman Linda Gudmundsson informed the Current. The new walkway may be nice amenity for the complex, but it will diminish the already small theater space beyond use. Overtime isn't giving up the fight to bring locally produced theater to the city, however. They plan to take advantage of the upset to reorganize as the Overtime Center for the Arts, adding film, concerts, and late-night cabaret to their current blend of plays, improv comedy, and acting classes. Where these ambitious plans might materialize is still to be discovered.

Anticipating that a new facility will need a build-out, Overtime has launched a capital drive on the crowd-funding site Kickstarter.com. Donors to "Move the Overtime" receive perks for their pledges on a sliding scale that begins at $1 (you get the newsletter). Slightly more generosity will place your name on the funder's poster and bag you a T-shirt. Big-time philanthropists get to have a play crafted and delivered to their specs. But like all special offers, there's a time limit on this one. Kickstarter drives always run for a set time, if the financial goals aren't met, the whole deal is off. As of today, there will be 25 days left for Overtime to raise their goal of $15,000.

In the mean time, you have till this Saturday, March 24, to catch the last days of Overtime's present production, Sleepers Awake. Written by James D.W. Peden and directed by Morgan Clyde, the play dwells on the wavering loyalties of an undercover operative living in SA who hesitates when he is summoned to activate the plans of his terrorist network. $9-$12; 8pm, Thu-Sat, March 22-24, 1414 S Alamo, Ste 103, (210) 557-7562, theovertimetheater.org.

Contemporary Art Month this week is packed again. This Saturday the Third Annual Art Kite Festival will be held at the Pittman Sullivan Community Garden. Bring your own kite or build one on site with materials and assistance provided by local artists. Music provided by Bethel AME Men's Choir and others. Free; noon-5pm Saturday March 24, 1000 Dakota, pittman-sullivan.org.

Sunday, a dozen artists go public during CAM Open Studios, happening from noon-4 p.m. at art spots across town. Check contemporaryartmonth.com for names and locations.

Luminaria organizers have rescheduled the big annual art fest that was washed out last weekend for Saturday, May 5 (yes, that Cinco de Mayo). As a bonus, they've added a new family-friendly event, HemisFest, to the day's happenings at HemisFair Park. More info soon at luminariasa.org.
