When STAGEStheatre was started almost thirty years ago, we had no idea how long we would be around or how many stages we would move through as an organization. Looking back, it’s been a fantastic, wild ride.

In March of 2020, it became clear to us that COVID-19 was here to stay for a while, that it was going to take a significant toll on all live entertainment, and quite possibly decimate many, if not all, small venues as we were left with no way to keep our doors open to the public. Continue Reading

MASA @ South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa – News

Even though circumstances may keep us apart—especially during the pandemic—food and theatre have a way of bringing people together. MASA is a live, online reading of four short pieces that relate to the historical and cultural importance of masa. This free event will be livestreamed on Monday, Aug. 17, at 5:30 p.m.

“Since every recipe has a lineage, and a story, how do we reach back into the past and embrace the traditions of our ancestors?” asks playwright Juliette Carrillo, who will direct MASA. “I’m interested in how recipes, smells and tastes live in our DNA.”

OC Theatre Guild Has Created a Theatre Artists’ Relief Fund

The OC Theatre Guild recognizes the struggles that face individual artists in light of COVID-19. With theatre doors closing, many have lost contracts and wages on which they depend. We also understand that with the uncertain nature of this crisis, we can not predict when jobs will return.

Our mission is to nurture, support and promote live theatre in Greater Orange County. It is our hope that by supporting independent artists in their time of need, we will nurture the community as a whole.This is where you come in. If you are able, we encourage you to donate to the artists in need by visiting our OCTG Theatre Artists Relief Fund.

If you are an artist that needs financial support as a result of COVID-19, you’ll find an application link on this page as well. (Post taken from OC Theatre Guild)

Taken from the press release:  

“WE’RE GONNA DIE” features a single Singer, accompanied by a full rock bad, as she shares

stories about death, grief and loneliness from her life. These stories range from the mundane to

the tragic, from discovering her first white hair to her father’s sudden and tragic death from

lung cancer as he waited for an experimental treatment. Lee’s songs and stories demystify grief,

creating a community space that provides the solace that we need to get through those

difficult moments.

THEATRE PALISADES presents: Steel Magnolias playing @ PIERSON PLAYHOUSE January 10 – February 16, 2020

How do you solve a problem like that child Shelby?! You don’t. A tender, funny, sad, funny play about the family tug of war between mother (M’lynn) and daughter (Shelby). And their friends who all come to the same beauty parlor where life and its issues get discussed and dissected in a very Southern and ladylike way. A perennial favorite of the American stage! Taken from the website.
