CABRILLO MUSIC THEATRE TO PROCEED WITH THE 2016-2017 SEASON.
An energized community and a new business plan keeps “Broadway In Your Backyard” with three great musicals .
(Thousand Oaks, CA)  The Board of Directors of Cabrillo Music Theatre is very proud to announce that the company has secured donations from members of the community, which will allow it to continue production of the 2016-2017 season!
After recently announcing the suspension of production due to a lack of resources, these contributions will provide Cabrillo with the ability to retool the organization, to engage in a new focus and strategy, and to move into the future in a fiscally responsible way. The Board of Directors is committed to taking these opportunities- a reduced 2016-2017 schedule, a substantial infusion of resources, and an energized and passionate community - to design a Cabrillo Music Theatre for the future.

Flying H Group Theatre Company presents its first world premier​, An Open Table by James James, an over-the-top dark comedy set one night in a fine-dining restaurant where the disgruntled staff decide to murder the customers. Fast-paced, raucous, a bit ribald, and totally hilarious, An Open Table is an exciting new play that should enjoy a long and successful future.
 
Sensational acting by Eric Mello, Javiera Torres, and the author, James James lead a fine ensemble cast in an excellent production directed by Flying H Artistic Director, Taylor Kasch. The Taylor Kasch-designed set features original paintings by Soceity805.com's own Erik Reel.
 
The best cheap date in the county and definitely not family entertainment.
