What an exciting time for The Storefront Theatre! We are beginning our 10th season. That’s quite a milestone for us and as we reach it, we thank everyone who has faithfully attended the shows, made generous donations, and invited friends and neighbors to participate too. If you’ve been with us since the beginning, you remember hilarious comedies like Over the River and Through the Woods and Tweaks – not to mention our most recent The Fox on the Fairway which had many of you ROFL. You remember powerful dramas – God’s Man in Texas, Benedictions and others. Those who saw Shotgun and Mold were deeply moved by the insight into real-life events. And of course, We Like Short-Shorts, our international festival of 10-minute plays, is in its 5th year. Our new season, opening September 17 and 18, will be just as entertaining, uplifting, and moving as our previous ones. We can’t wait to see all of our old friends again, and we look forward to welcoming new friends into the experience of The Storefront Theatre.

I've worked as an actor in several Storefront productions and loved the experience every time!Shon Wilson, Los Angeles, CA
