We're an up and coming theatre company located in the Los Angeles area committed to providing unforgettable memories that only live theatre can create. Our seasoned professionals inspire confidence and spur imagination through fun and adventurous tales that everyone from students to the teachers will enjoy! Our original plays run roughly forty-five minutes allotting several renditions per day. In order to advance theatre as a means of educating, challenging and inspiring young people, we are proud to say that all our performances are FREE to elementary schools and children's hospitals in an effort to bring imagination and creativity to life for one and all. What other theatre company can say that? We perform throughout the Los Angeles County. Trust us, we are not your average theatre company!
