Directions to Hillside Theater 

Conceived and written by Jamie Angell
Directed by Tristan Waldron '12

Featuring: Rachel Hayes '21, Dyoni Isom '19, Kai Morfín '22, Sandy Nguyen '21, Sergio Perez '20, and Rosie Stevenson '20

The critically acclaimed Occidental Children's Theater will celebrated it's ​24th year with an original story, The Adventures of Christopher Robin Hood, plus three adventurous adaptations of traditional folktales for a seven-week outdoor run in the Remsen Bird Hillside Theater on the Occidental campus. Summer performances ran Thursday through Saturday, July 11 through August 24, 2019.

In about an hour, ​the cast of six performed four energetic and funny stories without props, sets or special costumes, relying only on their acting and acrobatic skills.              

“The cast carries it off with the unflagging charm that has made this reliable company one of the Southland's – and the summer's – most entertaining children's theater offerings"
