As wonderful as "Bat Boy" will be, I am also extremely excited to be able to reveal the 2009 season that Ray had asked me to keep under wraps for some time.
Here is the lineup for 2009:
I LOVE YOU, YOU'RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE- An off-Broadway hit and great comedy.
SINGING JAILBIRDS- by Upton Sinclair
LES MISERABLES-This is the smash musical
ROCKY HORROR SHOW-Not the movie, but a live action musical everyone will enjoy.
THE CHRISTMAS CAROL-This is the stage adaptation of Charles Dicken's "A Christmas Carol"
The first season of The Relevant Stage is winding down with "Bat Boy" and "The Christmas Carol" in December, 2008.
The second season of The Relevant Stage will bring to San Pedro even more great productions, along with our Little Fish Theater Company.
I do believe there is more than enough support in OUR community and other communities to allow for two great Companies to perform in this town.
Little Fish has a good tradition of bringing great works to a small stage and audience. It's charm lies in its closeness to the audience and the plays that can be more intimate than on a larger stage.
"Victoria's Room" is a play that is best viewed in a small space where audiences get more than close to the play, they seem to become part of it.
That play is just one of so many works performed by Little Fish and are better performed in a small venue.
The Relevant Stage is going to bring to the larger stage works that need the space, the grandeur, and the facilities that can house a revolution, if necessary ("LES MISÉRABLES").
"The Rocky Horror Show" will allow all of us who have 'acted' during the showing of a movie, the chance to 'act' along with the folks on the stage, while being just about anywhere in the theater.
Bringing an Upton Sinclair piece to the big stage will be wonderful to view.
"I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change" is a comedy that I have heard about for several years and will be in attendance at the Warner Grand.
Maybe the continued successes of Little Fish and the increases in the successes of The Relevant Stage may allow the downtown area to keep moving towards being an area of growing creativity as older businesses move out and the downtown redevelopment attempts to move forward.
I think the more performances held at the Warner Grand and its annex, along with our great Little Fish Theater Company, will mean more business for downtown San Pedro and more excitement concerning what could happen to that area.
Creating a tasty dining experience with a great performance can be a marriage that everyone can enjoy and we certainly have some mighty fine restaurants to compliment two great theater companies, I feel.

This is the Relevant Stage's first season that will conclude with Bat Boy and Xmas Carol. Next year's seaon will be the second.

Unlike most groups our season is based on the calendar year. We hope the community will continue to support us in our 2009 season. The Christmas Carol will be an annual offering in December, beginning with this year (2008). We also offer a great wine tasting prior to all shows (accept those on Sundays) through our supporting partner, OFF THE VINE. Our Season Passes for 2009 (5 shows for $50!) and our Wine Tasting packages (typically $25 each) make great gift ideas!
