Save the Costa Mesa Community Playhouse – News

Founded in 1965, the non-profit Costa Mesa CIVIC Playhouse began at the OC Fairgrounds. In 1984, it was relocated to the Rea Elementary campus. In 2017, the School District will develop an AVID/Info Tech. program for their students’ enrichment which will cause us to lose our lovely non-profit theater. As the “City of the Arts”, the CMP hopes to remain a significant cultural and historic entity in Costa Mesa. Speaking on behalf of thousands of people, many very happy memories and extraordinary life experiences took place at this community theater. 

The petition needs at least 200 hundred signatures. It’s as simple as clicking on the link below and signing up on the page.

Bickering Royalty : The Lion In Winter @ Costa Mesa Playhouse in Costa Mesa – Review

Written by Alina Mae Wilson 

New way, new day, new play—new things abound.  I had not seen this play before.  Although the name is something I’ve heard often enough.  Costa Mesa Playhouse is currently running The Lion in Winter –an impressive title if ever there was one.  (The Chronicles of Narnia can just step aside because the war of the titles is over).  The storyline is about a king and his captive queen living in a castle while their three sons argue and scheme to inherit the throne.  It’s a basic story with what turns out to be some great characters, but the acting is not as impressive.
