Theater Arts / Theatre Academy

Current Season

Fall 2020 Season

All LACC productions will be conducted on Zoom this semester.

Virtual Greenroom

Directed by Leslie Ferreira

Virtual Greenroom is an original, devised, interactive Zoom-Play.

During the COVID-19 Pandemic, a prestigious Theater Arts program, also known as the LACC Theatre Academy, is forced to take all of its classes and productions online. The faculty create a Zoom Virtual Greenroom for the actors to relax and hang out in before, after—and sometimes, during—classes, rehearsals and performances. Be a fly-on-the-wall as you eavesdrop on a group of young, funny, and talented actors as they navigate the new reality of learning and practicing their art online in the new virtual world.

Going Mad: Alice in Hollywoodland

Written by Richard Alger
Directed by Tina Kronis

GOING MAD: Alice in Hollywoodland

This new work is inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and set in a present day Hollywood TV and film studio.  As Alice tries to make her dreams come true, she falls into the cruel court of the entertainment industry, where everyone is subject to the wayward whims of the studio executive, and the backlot becomes an enchanted scene of accidental surrealism. Created, rehearsed, and performed live and entirely online.
