Dearest friends and family of Circle Circle dot dot,
2014 has been a wild year for our little company. We've encountered some truly fabulous opportunities, and we continued to enjoy producing original Community-Inspired Theatre in San Diego and beyond! In the spirit of all good holiday letters, here's a wrap-up of some major milestones for us this wonderful year:
We kicked off 2014 in residency with Arizona State University where we worked with students and Astrophysicists to developRed Planet Respite. Our time at ASU provided us significant support in our efforts and inspired us to push the boundaries of Community-Based Theatre. We loved this opportunity to develop a piece with University students and there are exciting educational engagements in our near future.
While Soroya and I worked in AZ, Patrick Kelly directed our second installment of San Diego, I Love You in beautiful University Heights. This engagement has proven to be not only a crowd-pleaser, but one of our very favorite experiments in Theatre-making. We're thrilled to bring you our brand new third installment of this fan favorite piece once more in February 2015 on campus at UCSD. We hope you'll come fall in love with us all over again in this beautiful city.
With the entire company reunited in April, we immediately dove into our first ever musical: No Place Like Home, written and directed by Soroya Rowley and Andrew Steele. We promise our fans that this will not be our last musical. It was way too much fun!
In September we began our stint as Theatre-in-Residence at La Jolla Playhouse where our revamped sci-fi fantasy Red Planet Respite was remounted. It's thrilling to have the knowledge and support of the Playhouse as we continue to produce. The premiere of Wild California in June 2015 will be our final production in this wonderful residency.
As you can tell, this has been a big year of growth for us! We just can't do it without you. And from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for your support thus far. Every time you share a post, or tell a friend about us- we continue to gain fans. Every time you buy a ticket- we continue to fund our artists. Every time you add a little money to your ticket purchase- we can continue to make an impact and a mark on this world. With this in mind we hope you can continue to support our efforts and help us not only survive but thrive in the New Year.
