This year's Grand Prize Winners

Join us for the ultimate celebration of summer mischief and magic, A Midsummer Night’s Dream!  Let Puck entertain you with extraordinary feats of mischief, as he mercilessly toys with lovers of all kinds, humans and fairies alike.  “Lord, what fools these mortals be!”   Plays at 8pm June 12 through 14, 26 and 28 at Point Fermin Park, San Pedro.

“Something’s rotten in Denmark,” on Friday, June 19, as you experience the ultimate royal family drama:   Hamlet, Prince of Denmark.  Disturbed by the ghost of his father, the despondent prince weighs family loyalty and self-preservation against his duty to the crown, with tragic results.  Plays at 8pm June 19 through 21, 27, July 3 and 5 at Point Fermin Park, San Pedro.

Our season will run through August 16.  Visit here for additional dates and locations all over Southern California.
