"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.

"Pick of the Month!" - Show Time Magazine. "Magical!" - DRAMA-LOGUE. "A delight for the entire family!" - L.A. SPLASH. It's the all-time favorite, internationally acclaimed Family Theatre Series fairytale, a classic tale with a twist offering romantics from all walks of life the chance to try on the glass slipper and help Cinderella find her happily-ever-after.
From the award-winning team of Evelyn Rudie and Chris DeCarlo, CINDERELLA has all the makings of a perfect fairytale for today's generation: a handsome prince (who yearns to be loved for himself, not his royal position), vain stepsisters (who ultimately realize looks really aren't everything), a controlling (but genuinely well-meaning) stepmother and a refreshingly independent feisty Cinderella. "An Enchanting Cinderella!...captivates its young audience, highlighted by fast pacing, fancy costuming and a lovely, unweepy Cinderella...particularly within the context of Rudie and DeCarlo's trademark Gilbert & Sullivan comic lyrics." - LA Times.
After nearly two dozen tours to England, Alaska and Japan, and after delighting more than a quarter of a million audience members to date, this "innovative musical version" (Drama-Logue) is still the single most requested Playhouse Musical Matinee on three continents and has been a local audience favorite for 15 years in a row. "This extraordinary company creates a strange new brand of excitement...Truly imaginative and entertaining, this play has all its spark plugs firing." - LA PARENT. Added delights are the playful period costumes by award-winning designer Ashley Hayes, magical special effects by James Cooper and the heart-warming romance that blooms with the assistance of a glass slipper, a magic wand, and the audience's eager intervention. CINDERELLA features Actors' Repertory Theatre members Celeste Akiki, Rachel Galper, Tiffany Haile, Sarai Jimenez, Cydne Moore, Luke Martin McMahan, Joseph Perez, Elena Rust and Graham Silbert, with special guest appearances by Tianna Cohen and Michael J. Claman in the dual role of Kerwin the Valet and Prince Asgood the Charming, and Fairygodmother as herself.
Photo ops, Birthday and Tea Parties, hosted by a fairy tale character from the show, are available in conjunction with every performance. "A children's show that will delight children and adults, even if they think they have seen every possible twist on the Cinderella story." reviewplays.com

"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!
Saturdays at 2pm, Sundays at 12:30, December 1 through 16
