Money raised from the 2022 fundraising campaign will go towards expanding the El Campanil Theatre Academy along with offering financial assistance for its students.

In addition to providing entertainment to Antioch for more than 90 years, the El Campanil Theatre has cultivated the performing arts for East County youth through the theatre’s academy. It now seeks the public’s help to continue that tradition through its current fundraiser.

It began Oct. 31 with a goal of $50,000 for “El Campanil Theatre Academy, and it ends Dec. 31. The figure is higher than their 2021 “Projecting the Future” campaign goal of $35,000, which enabled them to buy a new projector with the capabilities to show movies in 4K, according to marketing director Erin Green. She did not disclose the fundraising total so far for this campaign.

The academy is a tiered program that offers its students an education in the performing arts, along with tools for career placement in the performing arts. These classes are taught by industry professionals and range from acting, design, voice, movement, playwriting and directing, according to their website.
