Theatricum Botanicum 40th Anniversary Open House — In 1973 Will Geer and his family established a theater company in the heart of Topanga Canyon. Forty years later, they continue to offer an annual season of live entertainment and a variety of arts education programs for children, teens and adults. On Saturday May 4, help celebrate Theatricum’s 40th Anniversary with a full day of food, games, theater and fun for the whole family. Activities include guided tours with costumed characters that include the gardens, archival photo gallery, stories of Theatricum's history, and a peek at a company rehearsal; theater games such as stage combat, Elizabethan dance, fencing, juggling and more; showcases and theatrical presentations from Theatricum’s Academy teachers and students; a “Sneak Peek’ preview of the 2013 five-play Summer Repertory Season on the main stage at 3 pm, followed by comedy improv from Off The Grid; food and beverage vendors; music and fun for the whole family to enjoy; and special one day only ticket offers. Discover the spectacular outdoor venue that Sunset Magazine calls “beguiling” and Buzz Magazine named “One of the 50 Coolest Places in Los Angeles.”
