Actor and screenwriter Anthony Montes of North Hollywood, California, presented an interactive one-man show at the Ocean Beach Community House on the evening of Friday, Aug, 20, titled “Outta the Darkness into the Light.” A Saturday performance was canceled due to the storm. Sponsored by the Ocean Beach Chamber of Commerce, the event was arranged with the assistance of Anthony’s sister, Diane Montes, who summers in Ocean Beach. The show is semi-autobiographical and focuses on Anthony’s recovery after contemplating suicide at the age of 27.
“We are truly excited to be able to come together again,” said Community Fund President Holly Etlin, “as the party is as much about community as it is a fundraiser.” Over 200 supporters sporting black and white attire were in attendance for the event, which had the theme 100 Years, 100 Dances, in celebration of the centennial anniversary of the Village of Ocean Beach.
