From a press release:
The historic La Habra Depot Theatre will re-open under the new management of the La Mirada-based Phantom Projects Theatre Group. The theatre group, which has been presenting theatrical productions at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts, has been awarded a five-year lease to manage and program the historic venue owned by the City of La Habra. The 132 seat venue will be renamed The Phantom Projects Theatre at La Habra Depot. The theatre has been dark since February of 2020 when it was vacated by its previous tenants. The new theatre is not a replacement, but an expansion Phantom Projects’ current operations at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts.
The new venue will receive a face-life and re-open in January with a gala red-carpet event featuring the Grammy nominated singer-songwriter and Orange County native Aloe Blacc and Maya Jupiter, followed by the official launch of a season in February, 2022
The Phantom Projects Theatre at La Habra Depot will serve the diverse Orange County community with a mainstage series to include musicals and plays, a family series, and special events such as concerts, comedy, open-mic nights, Karaoke, improv, and more. In addition, each season will feature ASL, sensory friendly and bilingual performances. An education department will offer acting, dancing and vocal classes for kids, adults, and seniors.
“I have fond memories of performing at the La Habra Depot as a 12 year old,” said Steve Cisneros, Phantom’s Founder and Producing Artistic Director. “Coming back 30 years later, but this time, with the keys to the building, feels very special.”
