2017 Season


Be careful what you wish for as Stephen Sondheim’s and James Lapine’s cockeyed fairytale is staged at CSUN's Little Theatre in TADW's adaptation of this groundbreaking, Tony Award-winning musical. Featuring your favorite characters like Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk) and the Witch, this lyrical musical retells classic Brothers Grimm fables as it centers on a baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse and wind up changed forever.


Disney's The Lion King has captivated the imagination of audiences around the world and now, for the first time ever, TADW will bring this one-of-a-kind musical to the CSUN Campus Theatre stage. The African savannah comes to life with Simba, Rafiki, Timon, Pumbaa, and an unforgettable cast of characters as they journey from Pride Rock to the jungle and back again, in this inspiring, coming-of-age tale.


Each summer for twenty years now, teens in TADW's playwriting program have been generating short scripts that express their deepest convictions, zaniest fantasies, and perceptive dramatic explorations in an evening of ten minute plays that connect us as friends, families, and community.  Join us this summer for this unique theatrical experience featuring actors from our improvisation group, techies from our design program, and directors from CSUN Theatre and other colleges. It's an event not to be missed -- authentic, hilarious, emotional, and captivating!
