The critically acclaimed Occidental Children’s Theater will celebrate its 20th season with a brand new story, Chicken Little Shop of Horrors, as well as three adventurous adaptations of traditional folktales, for a seven-week outdoor run in the Remsen Bird Hillside Theater on the Occidental campus.

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

Conceived and directed by associate professor of theater Jaime Angell, Chicken Little Shop of Horrors features Savannah Gilmore '15, Edward Jackson '16, Nicholas Justice '17, Hailey Moran '15, Jonathan Padron '14 and Amanda Wagner '17.

The Los Angeles Times has described Occidental Children’s Theater as "one of L.A.’s little gems, an acrobatic outdoor theater romp presented with imagination and whiz-bang physicality."

Performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 10 a.m., July 9 through August 22 in Hillside Theater.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for children. Click here to purchase tickets.
