"...A company well worth watching"

David C. Nichols,
LA Times

"The peripatetic Alive Theatre... creates the same anticipation that Apple creates just before a new product release. They make us wonder, what will they do next?"

James Scarborough,
Grunion Gazette

"Alive Theatre is a young, dynamic, multicultural company producing vibrant work on a shoe string. They are straight up "of the people, for the people". Strength, commitment, talent and heart abound"!

Stephen Adly Gurgis
In Arabia We'd All Be Kings
(Summer 2009)

"I was very moved... by the excellent performance of my play".

Playwright, José Rivera on Alive Theatre's References to Salvador Dali Make Me Hot

"Judging by the chemistry of this galvanized group, along with their professionalism and talent, I predict a rash of breakout stars, as well as a thriving future for the company. . . Alive Theatre has the potential to be Long Beach's Steppenwolf or Actors' Gang."

Marchelle Hammack,
Beachcomber Newspaper

Hello Friends and Patrons...

As promised in late 2012, Alive Theatre has some exciting news to share with you regarding our company. We are thrilled to be joining forces with our dear friends and colleagues at The Garage Theatre. Not merely a combination of our respective companies but a collision of two vital forces of Long Beach theatre!

The Garage and Alive have a shared history and parallel paths. The Garage folks were influential in our beginnings, acting as mentors when we were just wee, little things and have been our sister company throughout the past 5 years. Both companies were founded by Cal State Long Beach theatre arts alumni and share many of the same performers, technicians and audience –and an abiding love of producing an in-your-face, sometimes quirky, always provocative, brand of theatre.

So… this collision is a no-brainer. Each company has spent years staging theatre in “found”, untraditional spaces throughout Long Beach, working on a shoestring budget with love and passion as the fuel for their creative fire. The Garage Theatre found its current home at their 7th Street location in 2005 and, now is welcoming us into their space. Our mutual goal is to combine our strengths and pool our resources, furthering our shared vision, aesthetic and mission, allowing both companies, now unified, to keep growing and thriving here in Long Beach.

If you haven’t had the privilege and pleasure of experiencing a Garage Theatre production and want to get a taste of who they are and what they’ve done, we encourage you to peruse their website www.thegaragetheatre.org and check them out on Facebook.

We hope you are as happy at hearing this news as we are in sharing it with you. We thank you for your continued support and look forward to creating explosive theatre for and with you for many years to come!

Be well,

The Alive Theatre Team
