nov 11-19, 2023
Tickets are now on sale for the Los Angeles Mission College Theatre Arts production of Macbeth, a 90-minute adaptation of William Shakespeare’s epic tragedy. The show will be presented November 11-19 in the AMP Theater.
For LA Mission College’s first classical production, Associate Professor Robert Cucuzza has edited Shakespeare’s epic tragedy into a high-octane 90-minute thriller that careens into a mineshaft of sheer madness. Employing an open stage, hand percussion instruments, vintage theatrical effects, and a cast of 16, the company of students and professionals turn Shakespeare’s darkest play into a modern vision of fractured psychosis, dramatizing a merciless world where battles are being waged both within and without.

SPRING 2024 PRODUCTION
LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS
In Spring 2024, we will present the smash Broadway and Hollywood classic musical, Little Shop Of Horrors. Adapted from a low-budget 1960 cult film of the same name, Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, and Aladdin), Little Shop has become one of the most popular musicals in the world.
In a failing flower shop on Skid Row, the nerdy Seymour Krelborn happens upon a new breed of plant, which he names “Audrey II,” after his co-worker crush. After an accidental taste of blood, Audrey II is revealed as a ravenous carnivore, and promises fame and fortune to Seymour...as long as he keeps feeding it. As Seymour continues to supply human flesh to the rapidly-growing Audrey II, he and Audrey realize their love for each other and he must choose between love and the plant’s promise to escape Skid Row forever.
Los Angeles Mission College Theatre will be holding auditions for Little Shop of Horrors in December 2023. We will hold interviews for design and production positions in the second week of the Spring 2024 semester.
