As Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum prepares for its 2021 Summer Repertory Season, they welcome Fall with virtual celebrations.
For five decades, Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum has been educating kids and entertaining audiences in Topanga Canyon at their beautiful 299-seat outdoor amphitheater. Like all theaters in Southern California, Theatricum canceled their 2020 summer repertory season due to COVID-19, leaving them short of revenue to fuel their next season but is making plans to carry on the tradition of outdoor summer repertory theater by returning to the stage in 2021. To keep everyone connected, Theatricum will host virtual events leading up to an online community fundraising celebration on Saturday, Oct. 10. Storytime with Dragon and Friends, ​Saturday, Sept. 26 at 10 a.m. PST—Join company member Chris Jones and special guests, including Cooper Barnes and Beau Bridges, for a morning of Storytime, puppets, and fun for all ages. Hosted by ​“Dragon,” this event is designed for children 10 and under. The Woody Guthrie Story, ​Saturday, Oct. 3 at 4 p.m. PST​—Celebrate songwriter, activist and longtime Theatricum friend Woody Guthrie with members of the Geer family. This unique and engaging musical portrait frames his life story as well as his professional relationship with Will Geer through a variety of songs and selections from Guthrie’s published and unpublished writings. Grab a tambourine or guitar and sing along to this glorious slice of Americana performed from our living room to yours. Carry It On: A Virtual Gala in Support of Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum, ​Saturday, Oct. 10 ​at 8 p.m. PST—Our Theatricum celebration culminates with an evening hosted by Better Things star Pamela Adlon. The show will feature special guests, aerial performances, music, comedy, and an online silent auction. We invite you to join us to support and pay homage to the legacy of Theatricum Botanicum, as well as the importance of theater and arts in education. All events are free and open to the public. Visit ​theatricum.com/carryiton ​for event links information.
