Little Shop of Horrors – “Our latest show in Moss Landing brought to life a down and out skid row flower shop which just happened to stumble on a sweet talking, R&B singing, Venus flytrap avocado from outer space dead set on world domination.”

Mission Statement – We stage delightful theater in eclectic places. We remix classic scripts to excite new audiences. We give our casts and creative teams a chance to flourish as artist leaders.”

New Canon Theatre Company

Finding Chase – After a man takes his life, he leaves behind his partner of 8 years, his hero dad, and a note with a very explicit final wish: for his partner and dad to spend time together even though they have never spoken. Passions erupt when the two men come face-to-face and lay bare the truth of their feelings about one another.

Mission Statement – New Canon Theatre Company’s mission is to stage daring re-imaginings of the classical and contemporary canons while simultaneously producing new works by established and emerging playwrights.

Pacific Repertory Theatre

Production/Season statement – 2024 marks PacRep’s 42nd season, and we are anticipating a year of extraordinary things. Most exciting, perhaps, is the grand reopening of our beloved Golden Bough Playhouse after the completion of a major renovation. We are planning to open the season at the Golden Bough with 9 to 5, The Musical. The Golden Bough season then continues with POTUS and will end with Jersey Boys. At Carmel’s beautiful Outdoor Forest Theater, the season will kick off with the one and only The Wizard of Oz, followed by Jane Austen’s much-loved comedy of manners, Sense and Sensibility. And to round out the Forest Theater year on a holly jolly note, returning by popular demand, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, The Musical.

Mission statement – In celebrating the transforming power of the creative spirit, Pacific Repertory Theatre produces bold and daring interpretations of the great plays from the world stage – plays that engage, excite, educate and inspire – presenting a world-class theatrical experience.

Production – Sol Treasures Education Theater brings the timeless classic “Fiddler on the Roof” to the stage at the Historic Stanton Theater.
