La Mirada~No longer will price have to be a factor for any teen, family, or student who wants to be part of a live theatre experience. For one day only, on October 13, 2018, from 12pm-4pm, patrons may arrive to the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts Box Office and pay what they can for any show in the 4-show season from Phantom Projects Theatre Group. No patron will be turned away.

"The idea that anyone might not be able to be in the audience because of financial limitations pains me greatly. We are a non-profit, yes, and ticket sales are crucial, but at the end of the day, the educational element of what we do is far more important. We want to remove any excuse as to why someone can’t be a theatregoer,” commented Producing Artistic Director Steve Cisneros, who created the company at the age of 17 when pricing often limited his theatre-going abilities.

Pay What You Will tickets will be made available on Saturday October 13th, in-person only, at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts Box Office. Tickets may be purchased from Noon to 4:00 pm. Tickets, available via cash only, will be available on a first come, first served basis.

Courtnee Draper, star of Disney Channel’s first original series, The Jersey, and world-wide smash hit video game, Bioshock Infinite will be honored as a founding member of the troupe.

La Mirada~Phantom Projects Theatre Group will host it’s annual event: The Phantom Cabaret: A Benefit Gala for Arts Education, taking place on August 4 at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts.

Because of this fundraising event, the group is able to provide over $20,000 in donated theatre tickets and performances to non-profits, schools, and youth groups.

The fabulous evening includes a night of entertainment, dinner, silent auction and more. The event pays tribute to the non-profit organization’s work with at-risk youth through the performing arts.

This year, the first ever Alumni Award will be presented to an outstanding veteran of the troupe, founding member Courtnee Draper who started with the troupe at the age of 11.

She would continue to perform with the group on stage over the next 12 years, while growing her on-camera career. She starred in Disney Channel’s original TV Series, The Jersey, which saw her performing alongside legendary athletes such as Peyton Manning, Tony Hawk and Laila Ali. After starring in a handful of Disney Channel movies, Courtnee transitioned into more adult roles becoming a regular on The Bold and the Beautiful, and making appearances on such shows as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Tru Calling, Veronica Mars, and CSI: Miami.

After taking a break to pursue a career in law, she returned in a major way to star as Elizabeth in the world-wide smash hit video games Bioshock Infinite and Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea. The game earned her two Spike Video Game award nominations, one for Best Actress, and winning the other for Best Song.

The event will also feature performances and presentations from alumni and community members, including James McFarlane, Mayor of La Mirada Larry Mowles, Tessa Githens, Angela Griswold, The Jazz Angles, Jargie the Science Girl! and more.

Phantom Projects Theatre Group started in 1997 when a then 17-year old Steve Cisneros approached his high school Language Arts teacher, Bruce Gevirtzman, with the idea of taking plays Gevirtzman had written to local schools.

Immediately the idea grew from one touring show, rehearsed out of Cisneros’ parents’ 2-car garage, to a full six-show season at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts. The touring program has expanded to three touring shows, an education department, a costume rental dept and much, much more. The troupe’s home is now a 5,000 square foot facility.

The non-profit theatre troupe which aims to build theatre audiences of tomorrow through inspirational theatrical pieces, has performed for over 500,000 teens through its combination of shows.

Tickets for the Phantom Cabaret Benefit Gala start at $45 and can be purchased by calling the La Mirada Theatre Box Office at 714.994.6310 or visiting: PhantomProjects.com/gala

Life is a Cabaret at La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts E-mail

The La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts is now showing Cabaret, a sexy, modern rendition of a timeless production.

Set in Germany during the 1930’s, an American writer, Clifford Bradshaw, travels to Germany in search of a story for his novel and stumbles upon the beautiful, yet eccentric Sally Bowles.

Sally, who is a performer at the famous “Kit Kat Klub”, entices Cliff and unexpectedly leads him on a journey that is novel-worthy.

The emcee of the Kit Kat Klub exclaims, “Leave your troubles at the door” and sets a sensual, racy tone that lingers throughout the remainder of the show. The performers heat up the theater and enchant the audience with amazing vocals.

Aside from the glitz and glamour, the play also showcases the hysteria that arose within Nazi Germany and presents morals that are still pertinent to this day.

The writers and performers brilliantly intertwine drama, romance and comedy to keep the audience entertained from start to finish. This show is marvelous and truly sticks with you. So much so that you may find yourself imitating a German accent and attempting to the dance like the performers days after leaving the theater!

Don’t miss your chance to see Cabaret at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts now showing through February 11th.
