Still timeless. Still ticketless. Still admission-free. Always magical.
2024 Season Announcement!
Our summer season will run June 21-August 3. This is a season of change that honors our traditions, while embracing our future! This year’s locations include a new home park, as well as a combination of new & favorite touring locations.
Cardenio: Double Falsehood
A lost play by John Fletcher & William Shakespeare. Directed & Adapted by Jonathan Fisher.
Honor and bravery combine when an escape from the known world leads to discovery of purpose for 2 couples. A rollicking and dramatic adventure replete with maids in disguise, dastardly plots and pithy word-play.
Falstaff & the Boy Who Would Be King
A new adaptation combining both parts of Henry IV. Directed and adapted by Stephanie Coltrin.
Before St. Crispin’s day and the man who would be Henry V, was young Prince Hal, the reluctant heir to the throne, who spends more time drinking and playing tricks on Falstaff than he does navigating the intrigues of court. But with England itself at stake, Hal embraces his destiny, becoming the king who will lead his country to victory at Agincourt.
In addition to a new home park this year- we have to move our operations base.
Our Little Fish Theatre building is being sold for redevelopment.
We are thrilled to announce that through a partnership with Beach Cities Health District, we will be in residence there for the next three years while we seek a permanent building. BCHD and the City of Redondo Beach have been welcome advocates for our arts programs. We are are so grateful to be able to occupy a vacant suite on the BCHD campus. This partnership will allow us to continue to prepare for our summer festival, offer our year-round programming at Little Fish Theatre, and expand our programs. As arts creators, we know that live theatre and the arts are a vital part of the health and wellness of every community. Both of our organizations believe in promoting a culture of connection by delivering live shared experiences to multi-generational audiences and making a positive impact on our local communities.
Our new address is:
514 N. Prospect Avenue Ste L-1
Redondo Beach, Ca 90277
