HEROES IN ACTION
Pacifica Spindrift Players (PSP) describes themselves as a
humble playhouse showing revival musicals and dramas
along with contemporary productions. Their humble
beginnings began almost 60 years ago when Margaret
Moseley and Sheila B. Hyman had a dream for a little
theater in the new city of Pacifica. Since then, they have
been presenting live theatre to community members in the
coastal town and surrounding Bay Area.
As a non-profit organization, PSP relies on volunteers to help
them with show production, box office sales, administrative
tasks, and fundraising. They also rely on the generosity of
community members to donate costumes, props, and set
pieces, and corporations to contribute funding for renovation
projects at their playhouse. This year, PSP was undergoing
upgrades to their restrooms, including new flooring and
partitions. They had several leaks over the year, which
caused a greater need for an upgrade. The Swinerton
Foundation was able to help offset costs by donating to
the cause.
Dianna Collett has been working hard at PSP on their
Executive Board as the new Vice President in charge of
fundraising. One of the projects she has been working on
is an upcoming fundraiser for the theater involving a Frank
Sinatra impersonator show, as well as a historical slideshow
to give to the Pacifica Historical Society about the theater
and their history over the last 60 years. She’s been very
excited to be a part of the community that she has cared
about since the age of 10, and is grateful for the time she
spends volunteering for the organization.
