The West Side Waltz

Written by Ernest Thompson
Directed by Mary Jo Du Prey

Forty-one years after its premiere at the Ahmanson Theatre, Academy Award-winning writer Ernest Thompson (On Golden Pond) deconstructs his script for The West Side Waltz. In the world premiere of Thompson’s newly revised, heart-filled dramedy set during the tumultuous ’80s, Theatricum artistic director Ellen Geer; her sister, Melora Marshall; and daughter Willow Geer take on the roles of an aging concert pianist, her violin-playing spinster neighbor, and a would-be actress on New York’s Upper West Side.

A prologue discussion with the cast will take place before the show at 6:30pm on 8/27. Pay What You Will ticket pricing is available (cash only at the door) on 7/29.

The Merry Wives Of Windsor

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Ellen Geer

Shakespeare’s buoyant comedy, re-set in 1950s small-town America to a score of rockin’ ’50s tunes. When opportunistic schemer and womanizer John Falstaff blows into town on his Harley and tries to woo two wealthy women at once, the townspeople gleefully plot his comeuppance. Things might seem picture perfect in “Small Town U.S.A”... but just underneath the surface, the fight for women’s rights has begun in full force.

A prologue discussion with the cast will take place before the show at 6:30pm on 8/7. Pay What You Will ticket pricing is available (cash only at the door) on 7/15.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Melora Marshall

Theatricum returns with its signature production, an annual event infusing Shakespeare’s beautiful language with music and song to heighten the pleasure. The most magical outdoor setting in Los Angeles is once again transformed into an enchanted forest inhabited by lovers both fairy and human. Shakespeare conjures a world of wonder, magic and romance where comical misunderstandings and the pain of unrequited love are resolved, and all is reconciled through midsummer night revelries and the enduring power of nature.
