The Right Crucible Obstacle Race raised $1,500 to help with the renovations of the Beale Street Theater.

KINGMAN – Plenty of thrill-seeking running enthusiasts got muddy and wet last Saturday to benefit local performing arts.

The Right Crucible Obstacle Race, a 5K and one-mile run and obstacle course held on the Lingenfelter property across from the airport, wrangled more than 100 volunteers, supporters and participants who navigated and slogged up, down and all around more than 20 obstacles including mud pits, dirt hills and rope swings.

Event organizer Anna Shuffler, the Travis Lingenfelter-owned vitamin business The Right C and numerous volunteers donated their time, property and effort for the event, raising $1,500 in proceeds for the renovation of Beale Street Theater.

“We were very pleased with the event,” said Kristina Michelson, executive director of Kingman Center for the Arts. “Everyone got muddy. We had a lot of families come out to support us.”

There’s no word on whether they’ll do it again next year.

“We had a bigger turnout than expected,” Michelson said. “We want a big thank you to Anna for that event.”

Auditions for Beale Street Theater’s next production, “Peter Pan”, are 9-11 a.m. Saturday at Kingman Center for the Arts, 208 Beale St. There will be an encore presentation of “Oh, Horrors! It’s Murder!,” the dinner theatre production held at Grand Events Center at 7 p.m.March 24 and April 14, and 1 and 7 p.m. April 15 at Kingman High School, 4182 N. Bank St.
