Dear Friends,


It is with everyone's well-being in mind that we have decided to postpone all of our events and programming for the time being.


L.A. Fest, Sunday Best, True Story, Off-Night Programming, and the One Act Festival will be temporarily on hold until we are able to confidently reschedule for a time that does not put our audiences and theatre artists at risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus. 


We will be in touch soon with more information as we have it but until then, please take care of yourselves and be well! And wash your hands. A lot.

"Wild Wild Christian" is a hilarious and true coming-of-age story about puberty, spiritual evolution, and sexual frustration....all while living on a Christian Summer Camp (awkward!). The story is recounted from real journal entries written by LA based comedian Simone McAlonen while she was living at the camp in middle school.
