DESERT ROCK GARDEN is a memory play about belonging, family, and creating something beautiful out of nothing. This fictionalized historical story about a young orphan, Penny, and a Japanese immigrant, Fuzzy, who forge a friendship in the Topaz Relocation Center in 1943 reveals the inherent human ability to transform nothing — loneliness and barren desert — into something long-lasting and precious.
Written by Roy Sekigahama – Directed by Yari Cervas

INTO THE WOODS brings well-known fairytale characters to musical life. Interwoven through their tales is the story of a baker and his wife, whose longing for a child is thwarted by a mischievous witch. Stephen Sondheim’s songs, seamlessly melded to James Lapine’s text, are perfect expressions of the complications of living in modern society and the difficult choices we encounter on the paths of our lives.
