Lamb's Players Theatre Attempts Guinness World Record This Weekend
Lamb's Players Theatre announces their upcoming event "100 Hours of Stories." From today, May 8 - 12, 2014, LAMB'S will make history. With the help of favorite local theatre artists, and community members, the San Diego nonprofit will present 100 consecutive hours of play and musical readings to break the Guinness World Record for Longest Marathon Theatrical Performance and celebrate Lamb's.
There will be a peer-to-peer fund-raising component to this special 100 hour event, as artistic and community participants help spread the word to raise funds for future LAMB'S programming.
"We work hard to keep our theatre affordable, so tickets prices cover only a part of the cost of productions and operating expenses," shared Colleen Kollar Smith. "Fund-raising efforts are vital to keep non-profit arts organizations fiscally healthy and artistically flourishing. Sit down fund-raising dinners are lovely, however we were looking for something a little different as we celebrate our 20th year in Coronado. The idea of a 5-day event bringing together past productions, renowned local artists, and the community that supports us with a common goal is incredibly exciting. Our goal is to break the Guinness Record of Longest Running Theatrical Performance and celebrate Lamb's all while raising 100K for the organization. Everyone involved will assist in peer-to-peer fund-raising, which is a wonderful first for us. We were overjoyed when over 70 professional actors immediately volunteered their help to make this happen. Coupled with a strong outpouring of volunteer support from the community - we are passionately in full planning swing."
