New This Year!
Call for local professional performers!
The Clark Center in Arroyo Grande will be hosting a weekly series of live professional online performances of local performers and organizations for nine weeks during the Summer of 2020. “Summer Date Nights at the Clark Center”. These will be hosted through Facebook Preview and posted simultaneously on YouTube. Most will be under an hour in length.
There will be links to donate online via the Clark Center booking engine. These Donations will be split 50-50 with the performing group and the Clark Center.
The Clark Center will actively market these shows in advance. This includes weekly emails to over 16,000 patrons, Facebook posts to almost 5,000 followers and posting to local online community calendars. Performers will also be able to market the show via their own social media campaigns. The shows will remain on YouTube for at least 9 weeks.
The Clark Center is looking for pre-recorded video performances, in a wide variety of musical genres, comedy and theater.
Performers will be able to use existing videos they have, use unpublished videos, or create new ones for this performance. The group will be able to use the videos later for their own purposes. The Clark Center can provide some support in editing these videos. Participating groups can also leverage any collateral they have (CD’s, T-shirts etc.) for enhanced donation levels.
Benefits to Performers:
* Receive 50% of the donations raised.
* Reach & grow your audiences and fanbase by reaching Clark Center patrons.
* Keep your name current even though unable to perform live.
* Ability to re-use video created for other purposes.
* No need to handle credit cards.
Several prominent local organizations have already committed to participating, including: Festival Mozaic, Central Coast Shakespeare Festival, Cabaret 805, Orchestra Novo, and Central Coast Comedy Theater.
The non-profit Clark Center for the Performing Arts in Arroyo Grande is the third largest indoor performance venue in SLO County, with just over 600 seats. It has been presenting professional entertainment for almost 20 years.
