The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
It was "Big Bad Wolf Tales," a fun children's play being performed by the Culver City Public Theatre. Here's the titular wolf hiding at the back of the crowd, awaiting his dramatic entrance.
Each Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 for the rest of the month of July, the Culver City Public Theater is performing their play "Around the World in 80 Days," an adaptation of the Jules Verne novel by Mark Brown. Then during the first three weekends in August at 2:00 the troupe will perform an adaption of "Little Women" by Marian DeForest.
Each 2:00 performance is preceded by a performance of the Children's Popcorn Theatre at 12:00, which is what we witnessed. The kids show pulled in a pretty good crowd.
Since its founding in 1998, the Culver City Public Theatre has produced free, outdoor performances of plays by Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, Noel Coward, Neil Simon, Chekhov, Moliere, Sophocles, Euripides, and many more. It is supported by the Culver City Performing Arts Grant Program and by Sony Pictures Entertainment -- as well as by Joxer Daly's Pub (thanks Mayor O'Leary!), the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, Cohen Consulting, the Massage Garage, Sparky Unleashed Design Services, and Trader Joe's.
