Clairemont Act One (CAO), is an all-volunteer run 501(c)3 community theater company in the Clairemont Neighborhood of San Diego, California. Founded by Katie Turner in 2011, CAO is committed to providing quality entertainment and creative opportunities to all our neighbors, family and friends.

Several of CAO’s performances have featured original work written by CAO members.  CAO has also performed staged readings, offered actor training workshops, and participated in such outreach activities as performing in local nursing homes.

Because CAO is run entirely by volunteers, community support is essential to the success of each production. Funding is necessary for renting performance space, printing, marketing, insurance and other expenses. We ask for your assistance in reaching our goal of producing professional productions that will not only entertain but enrich our audience as well.
