Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf January 30 – February 22, 2015
Ojai Art Center Theater
113 S. Montgomery Street Ojai, CA
The author saw the title phrase scrawled with soap on a mirror at a university party. It struck him as translating the song “Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf” with the underlying meaning of: “Who’s afraid of living life without false illusions,” a common theme in the writing of celebrated English author Virginia Woolf. It dramatizes the breakdown of a couple’s marriage witnessed by a younger couple drawn into the fray. This Tony Award winner is directed by Tom Eubanks.

As You Like It March 27 – April 19, 2015
Ojai Art Center Theater
113 S. Montgomery Street Ojai, CA
Shakespeare’s most life-affirming comedy, and his most optimistic vision of the human condition. Clowns and misanthropes, lovers and haters, the wise and the foolish, all find their way to the magical forest of Arden where life is re-molded “nearer to the heart’s desire.” Both hilarious and tender, this play celebrates Love with a capital L, and no one, however grumpy or cruel, silly or smart, escapes its healing power.
