Announcing Our 2019 Season

We’ll be kicking off our 2019 season on June 13 at Point Fermin Park in San Pedro and running for 10 weeks through August 17 in venues across the Southland.


The Comedy of Errors
Opening June 13
directed by Amanda McRaven

A classic Shakespearean romp of mistaken identity! Two young visitors arrive in the city unaware that their long-lost twins already live there. Over the course of a single day, everything that can go wrong does go wrong: a marriage at breaking point, a missing gold chain, an unpaid debt, and a dubious arrest. It’s mischief and mayhem galore!


Henry V
Opening June 20
directed by Stephanie Coltrin

Shakespeare’s most patriotic and inspiring play tells of a young King Henry V who seeks to unite his beloved England. After laying claim to French lands and being ridiculed, Henry marches off to war. Although sorely outnumbered, Henry rallies his troops and, at Agincourt, achieves a decisive victory.
