Our 2016 Productions!

Cymbeline – opens June 16
Directed by Cylan Brown

Watch Cymbeline performance in Rossmoor on YouTube / Los Alamitos TV
An action-adventure-fairy-tale-romance! Shakespeare tells an epic romantic tale filled with magical potions, dastardly villains, ghosts, gods and lost princes.

Othello – opens June 23
Directed by Stephanie Coltrin

Watch Othello performance in Rossmoor on YouTube / Los Alamitos TV
An emotionally gripping thriller, where gossip turns friendships rancid, and rumor brutally murders innocence. Othello is as unflinching in its power as it is in its heartbreak.

Be sure to check our schedule and see all of our 2016 venues.
