"She LOVES the class! Thank you for being so much fun and professional!" raves workshop mom L. Forkin. "I could see so much joy and happiness in my daughter's eyes and she told me 'Mommy, I can't stop smiling cheek to cheek!' " exclaims B. Alvarez. Acting! Singing! Dance! Crafts! Make-up! Costumes! and a live performance on stage highlight this fun and exciting create-a-play theatre experience for kids 4 to 6. This internationally acclaimed Santa Monica Playhouse program offers a one-of-a-kind experience where Early Stagers revel in the joy of creativity and self-expression, working with professional actors who have dedicated their lives to sharing the magic of live theatre.
"Our daughter and son really did love every minute - they had a productive, interactive and hugely enjoyable time," says mom N. Gestetner. Youngsters sing songs, play theatre games, bring favorite fairytales to life, work with crafts and props, and perform on stage with members of the "big kids" workshops on the last day of the session. Emphasis is on sharing, caring, and having a fun time. Kids learn to improve their communication and team-building skills, overcome shyness and build self-esteem as they make new friends, practice focusing their energy and expand their imagination. The innovative Santa Monica Playhouse theatre-for-youth programs, now in their 49th year, have been developed from work done with more 50,000 students locally, nationally and internationally. Daily Variety calls it "One of the best in the country!"
Santa Monica Playhouse is proud to be an approved program on LAArtsEd.org, Los Angeles County's one-stop-shop for quality arts education programs.
Dues: $395 for the session; sibling discounts and financial assistance available - just ask.

"An afternoon of theatre magic in which audience participation and brotherly love pave the way for another happy yuletide season!" raves LA Splash Magazine. It's the timeless Rudie-DeCarlo musical comedy ALL ABOUT SANTA. Where has Santa gone? And how can the inhabitants of the North Pole save the spirit of the holidays from the diabolical machinations of an all-too-commercial world? Complete with perky elves, zany inventors, toy soldiers and porcelain dolls, audiences boo the villain, cheer the heroine, and help to save the day in this delightful holiday event, perfect for the whole family!
" 'Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist.' (Francis P. Church, NY Sun editor, 1897) That's the message of Chris DeCarlo and Evelyn Rudie at Santa Monica Playhouse. They have a way of writing a play that speaks on many levels, even when it's as simple as a Santa story. All About Santa explores the commercialization of Christmas, over-spending, and the value of love and personal involvement. Laughter is nearly continuous and certainly is contagious!" exclaims The Outlook.
Written and helmed by Playhouse Co-Artistic Directors Chris DeCarlo and Evelyn Rudie, All About Santa features Elodie Cammarata (Disneyland, Paris; Absolutely Halloween), Emery Erin (Oh Dad, Poor Dad; Finding Belle), Tiffany Haile (Carmen, Cinderella), Kelly Kristofferson (Little Women: The Musical, Finding Belle), Elena Rust (Annie Oakley and the Princess Cafe, Cinderella), and Sabrina Twyla (The Little Mermaid, A Midsummer Night's Dream). Words and music by E. Rudie, gorgeously detailed Victorian costumes by Ashley Hayes, and an outrageously delightful holiday set by James Cooper. Great for family gatherings, birthdays and holiday parties, too!

"Ten Best New Year's Eve Events in LA" raves LA Weekly. "11 Best New Year's Eve events in Los Angeles!" exclaims Daily News. A scrumptious and sumptuous complimentary buffet supper starts off the evening, then it's "on with the show!" as internationally acclaimed Actors' Repertory Theatre brings you a highly entertaining, family-friendly Rudie-DeCarlo musical revue, with prizes, sing-a-long songs, dancing in the aisles, humor and other delights culled from 5 decades of audience favorite Santa Monica Playhouse productions. From finger-snapping 40s jazz to foot-stompin' country rock, Jewish patter songs to romantic ballads, this show has it all! Add champagne, non-alcoholic sparkling apple juice, hats, tiaras, leis, noisemakers, streamers and special surprises and you have a not-to-be-missed New Year's Eve celebration. The early-bird 6:00 pm celebration is a great way to celebrate New Year's Eve with the entire family, letting the kids have a real "grown-up" New Year's Eve treat, and still get home at a reasonable hour and let the adults kick off an evening of after-theatre dining and celebrating. Playhouse New Year's Eve festivities are among the most popular in town, and shows sell out fast, so book early to avoid disappointment. Help the Playhouse usher in 2019 and its 59th anniversary of continuous theatrical and educational services to the community. "The Playhouse is truly a gem in this city, and visiting it should be at the top of everyone's to do list!" DAILY BRUIN. Ask about special discounts for groups of 8 or more!
