2022-2023 Season​

Coachella Valley Festival for Young Playwrights

Actors will work with top directors in staged readings of three new plays by middle and high school students from the Coachella Valley and beyond. The three winning short plays, inspired by an art piece from award-winning visual artist Michael Angelo Hernandez, will be workshopped with directors, casts, and playwrights in February and presented in March, 2023.

Othello (The Tragedy of Othello, the Moor of Venice) by William Shakespeare

Featuring some of Shakespeare’s most memorable tragic characters, Othello, tells the tale of a brilliant North African Christian general of the Venetian army who has won  the respect and gratitude of the  whole Venetian city-state. The war hero is newly married to Desdemona, daughter of one of Venice’s leading citizens. Shakespeare highlights the racial injustice of Venetian society as Othello falls prey to the envious Iago, who plays on Othello’s insecurities and  drives him to the foulest of deeds.

Tony & Tico's Wedding

A fresh LGBTQ+ take on the hit Tony ‘n Tina’s Wedding, this special production immerses its audience as guests at a hilarious wedding between two sweethearts, Tico and his fiancee Tony. The audience participates in all the features of a real wedding, including a reception with real food, music, and dancing.  Actors mix right into the audience to perform their 20-odd (mostly) loveable characters. There are roles for all ages; the play requires  actors with strong improvisation skills.
