SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

The multi-award winning Nine O'clock Players continue their 87th year bringing extraordinary family theater to Southern California with a magical musical look at the timeless story of The Enchantment of Beauty and the Beast. In the castle of a rich, self-centered Prince, an old woman suddenly appears and pleas for shelter. When the arrogant Prince refuses her request, the old woman -secretly an enchantress- turns him into a Beast. The spell can only be broken when the Beast is humbled and someone truly loves him for who he is on the inside. Will Beauty break the spell?

The Grand Opening festivities, complete with an Enchanted Forest in the courtyard, will take place on Sunday, November 5th, 2017 at 1pm, with the performance at 2pm. Other performances are on Sundays, November 12th and 19th and December 3rd. All performances are at 2pm. Ticket prices are $15. Special group rates and birthday parties are available.

The Nine O’Clock Players (NOP) has been producing plays since 1929, and is the oldest children’s theater company in Southern California. The award-winning NOP stages performances throughout the school year – providing live theater for thousands of Title 1 LAUSD students. Productions are offered to school groups during the week, and to the public on weekends. Revenue from weekend performances support the NOP to offer shows and bus transportation at no cost to economically and physically-challenged children throughout the LAUSD. Built in 1938, the Assistance League Theater is the oldest barn theater west of the Mississippi River.
