LONG BEACH SHAKESPEARE COMPANY
Celebrating 22 years with our 2024 season
LOST AND FOUND!
Dear Patrons, Friends, and Theatre Lovers,
As Artistic Director of the Long Beach Shakespeare Company, I’m pleased to
announce our 2024 season – LOST AND FOUND — a theme that’s as varied as
it is universal. Shakespeare and playwrights throughout time remind us that
everything that finds its way into our hands can, in a quick twist of fate, slip through
our fingers. No one escapes the pangs of loss. But it’s the joy of finding—whether
hope, love, friendship, family, or anything in between—that truly inspired the season.
Whatever you seek, I hope you’ll find reason to find yourself at the Helen Borgers
Theatre in 2024.
Labour’s Lost, Antigone, The Comedy of Errors, and a selection of shorts adapted
from Anton Chekhov stories. Radio Shows carry the theme forward starting with
The Wizard of Oz in the spring. Fall shows include “Dial M for Murder,” a Ray
Bradbury double feature, and, of course, our classic War of the Worlds at
Halloween. The year wraps with a deluxe radio-style production of Charles Dickens’
heart-wrenching holiday parable, The Christmas Carol.
bringing fresh voices to our shared lost-and-found narrative. Finally, save the date
for LBSC’s Holiday Gala coming on December 1st. It’ll be your chance to support
your local theatre—and get an insider’s sneak peek at upcoming productions.
LBSC is the ONLY full-time classical theatre company in Long Beach. We are
dedicated to bringing classic literature to life with quality performances, live music,
and lively spectacle. Our mission is both pro-literacy and pro-community, with
professional actors, musicians, designers, choreographers, and technicians working
alongside eager students and talented neighbors. Watch for new theatre arts
opportunities in the months ahead.
You can help us make sure that our shows go on! LBSC depends on individual
contributions like yours to maintain quality productions and educational
opportunities, including discounted student tickets.
I hope you’ll take a moment to review LBSC’s membership options and find
the one that’s right for you. Your contribution to LBSC will help to cover the costs
of overhead, costumes, sets, props, lights, printing, and more. All contributions are
tax-deductible and greatly appreciated!
