The Random People Theatre Project

  A collaborative ensemble of experienced and novice writers, actors and directors that  have mounted community generated stage performances for 13 years, first at the Mateel Community Center in Redway California, and now in our new home:

The Redwood Playhouse

in Garberville California.

  •    The project includes community members in a start-to-finish theatrical production, that begins with writing during the Summer months- Interested Community members at large are encouraged to write and contribute short scripts.

  •    In the Fall, the scripts are honed and selected by committee, and after a group reading Directors are assigned. Auditions and casting take place; rehearsals and group run-throughs happen during the Winter months, and in the Spring a production of live theatre is performed 3 times for the community, with the creative technical support of sound light & scenic engineering-The show is also captured with multi-angle video.

  •    We encourage anyone to get involved, regardless of experience, our goal is to discover, encourage & nurture the writing, acting and directing talents of Southern Humboldt community members, and from these talents, & our growing experience, create a professional quality production, which creates a unifying and empowering experience for all participants, including our audience, as we share our stories and talents.

Join us next year!
