Every performance is like a ghost – it’s there and then it’s gone,” from Maggie Smith and “Theatre is a series of insurmountable obstacles on the road to imminent disaster,” from Tom Stoppard. Suzanne feels the Overtime is a place of family and community who all work together for one thing: for the love of theatre. The Overtime strives to create original, accessible and innovative theatre – all at a very affordable price – for the good people of San Antonio, Texas and beyond!
