“I love being married. It’s so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.” Don’t miss RITA RUDNER this Friday-Sunday at the Laguna Playhouse.
“We've begun to long for the pitter-patter of little feet - so we bought a dog. Well, it's cheaper, and you get more feet.” Don’t miss Rita Rudner coming to the Playhouse for three performances only beginning August 24th.
To enrich lives through the magic of live theatre, to provide educational opportunities for children and adults, and to create experiences that stimulate cultural and social interaction and inspire our community.
That feeling you experience — when you collapse into peals of laughter, when you can’t hold back tears, when you can’t stop talking about it with your friends, when you keep hearing the tunes in your head.There’s nothing like it in the world.
And that’s why you keep coming back again and again.
The magic of theatre offers the thrill of live performance, the discovery of a new story or an old one re-invented, the surprise of the unexpected or the ring of the familiar, the exploration of life’s mysteries or the celebration of our common humanity.
How fortunate for you to have a place where you can retreat for such experiences. How lucky we all are to have The Laguna Playhouse.
It’s your theatre.
