FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: JANUARY 15, 2018
South Camden Theatre Company Introduces Their Camden Resident Ticketing Program For Their 13th Season — Celebrating Female Playwrights
Camden, New Jersey: South Camden Theatre Company’s Board of Directors is pleased to announce the Camden Resident Ticketing Program. This program provides Camden residents the opportunity to attend SCTC performances at the Waterfront South Theatre at the discounted rate of $5.00 per ticket. This program gives Camden residents a chance to attend live theatre at an affordable ticket price.
Theatre company partnerships are making this ticketing option possible for all of 2018.
Two South Jersey corporations have partnered with SCTC to support a marketing effort to Camden residents and to subsidize the reduced ticketing cost. The Holman Automotive organization provided funding to be used for marketing. This allows the theatre company to send post cards, promote to residents on Facebook and to spend time collaborating with Camden groups to help get the word out to residents. Subaru of America has partnered with us to subsidize the difference of the ticket cost from the general admission price of $20.
Steve Holman said, “…about 20% of our giving is intended to impact lives in Camden. This opportunity to support a program that directly impacts residents makes perfect sense.” Sandra Capell from Subaru said, “This is a great program and we are happy to subsidize the Camden resident ticketing.”
South Camden Theatre Company is in it’s 13th season producing plays in Camden. In 2010 we moved into the beautiful Waterfront South Theatre that was built by The Heart of Camden and The Domenica Foundation. “Getting the word out that great theatre is happening in Camden has been an ongoing effort of the Board of Trustees,” states Robert Bingaman, Board President.
Artistic Director Raymond Croce’s 2018 season Celebrates Female Playwrights and women. “When I was planning our 13th season I realized we had never produced a season focused on women. I had already planned this season before the “ME TOO” movement happened and am really glad to see how that movement has taken hold and will bring about change.” “I hope that our season supports the movement and gives women an opportunity to laugh, to hope, to explore and to dream.”
Our mission as Camden’s first professional theater is to enhance the community by creating quality artistic productions while anchoring The Waterfront South Arts District. We strive to promote South Camden’s rebirth as a destination by providing a positive experience for its residents and those from the surrounding region. Our goal is to entertain, engage, and educate.
South Camden Theatre Company is wheelchair accessible and provides assistance at every performance if needed. Reservations are requested for accessible seating and may be made by calling the theater in advance at 856.409.0365.
ABOUT WATERFRONT SOUTH THEATRE:
The Waterfront South Theatre is a new (in 2010) 99 seat intimate theatre built by the Domenica Foundation and the Heart of Camden under the direction of Sacred Heart Church and Father Michael Doyle to help bring art back to Camden. Our intimate theatre allows audience members the opportunity to be “close” to the action as no seat is more than 30 feet from the stage. The theatre is located on Jasper Street, across the street from the Sacred Heart elementary school. The address is 400 Jasper Street, Camden, NJ 08104.
Funding for the Camden Resident Ticketing program provided in part by Holman Corporation and Subaru of America. Additional funding has been made possible in part by the Camden County Cultural & Heritage Commission at Camden County College, through the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
