Family Musicals at Los Angeles Community Theatre
It’s where my family and I recently saw a wonderful rendition of “A Christmas Carol” over the holidays. The production followed the classic story but enhanced it with creative song and dance choreography. That’s what makes the Canyon Theatre Guild so enjoyable – it features popular Broadway shows with a local twist. And it’s fun to recognize people we know who are part of the cast. Plus, you can’t beat the price for most shows: $17 for adults, and $15 for kids and seniors.
The non-profit arts organization produces 10 full-scale shows each year that attract people from throughout the L.A. area. Abbey Road, a Beatles tribute band that got great reviews from the Los Angeles Times and other major publications when it performed last year at the Canyon Theatre Guild, is back on Jan. 13, 2012. Tickets for this special engagement: $25 – $40.
Next up: “Gypsy,” the classic musical journey about the ultimate stage mother and her daughters. This enjoyable show will feature the popular songs “Everything’s Comin’ Up Roses” and “Let Me Entertain You.” Show dates: Jan. 27 – Feb. 26, 2012.
Running currently is “A Little Princess,” which follows the delightful adventures of Sara Crewe in Miss Minchin’s School, from Jan. 28 – Feb. 26, 2012.
The Canyon Theatre Guild, a popular entertainment venue since 1970, also runs workshops for children and teens. And auditions are open to anyone with a penchant for performing. For more information, call 661-799-2702 or visit www.canyontheatre.org.
