The Best of the Best Show:
It’s the beginning of Season TEN (What?!) for the Long Beach Community Theater and we’re ready to celebrate! Over the past nine years we have had 100’s of participants step behind the mic. to share their true stories and talents! Join us for a smorgasbord-sampler of some of our favorite five-minute pieces from our “big shows”, our two years spent on ZOOM, and our monthly storytelling event, “Speak. Easy.”
Behind the Mask:
What happens when we take our masks off? When does the REAL (insert YOUR name here) get to stand up? AS IS.
Post-pandemic, 12 local artists went on a journey inward to learn more about themselves, their interactions with others, and how they show up in the world. Come witness as they creatively express themselves using storytelling, spoken word, monologues, music, and dance to allow you to see BEHIND THE MASK.
The Long Beach Community Theater (LBCT) is a unique, storytelling theater where the participants are given a topic and five minutes to share a true story from their lives using any form of performing or visual arts they like: dancing, singing, acting, spoken word, film, or simply storytelling served straight-up – ANYTHING GOES! The LBCT provides a platform and a safe space for our friends and neighbors to express themselves and connect one story at a time. We strive to enhance our understanding of ourselves and others by producing original material revolving around social and cultural issues as well as values pertinent to the lives of our community. We believe everyone has a story and everyone’s story matters!
