25TH ANNIVERSARY ARCHIVAL PROJECT


In honor and celebration of About…Productions’ 25th Anniversary,
we’re mining our rich repertoire of original theaterworks,
presenting them in staged readings and full productions,
and preparing them for publication.


Up first – Properties of Silence, our critically acclaimed production to be remounted
as part of two unique festivals in the Fall of 2014 –
a reading for the AxS Festival, a Pasadena arts and science fest; and a festival production for Encuentro 2014, the national Latino theatre festival.







The Chicano Legacy Project empowers all youth and
enlightens audiences by drawing on the rich and inspiring history of the Chicano movement
of the 1960s and 70s, a period of dramatic civil rights activity that continues to affect all Americans.
It is built around our Evangeline production and its related educational programs,
and the Young Theaterworks’ Through the Ages program.






About Productions’ Young Theaterworks programs offer innovative programming that
introduces youth to the importance of writing and the power of communication
through artistic expression, facilitated dialogue and live performance.
