Rogue Artists Ensemble 1st Complete Season

rogue artists ensembleRogue Artists Ensemble has just announced their first complete season of performances for 2017.

The season includes one world premiere immersive production in association with East West Players, one workshop of an original site-specific adaptation commissioned by the City of West Hollywood, one reading of an original script, and a remount and reinvention of an all-ages production at the Pasadena Playhouse.

This year will see Rogue Artists Ensemble begin what they hope will be an annual tradition of producing at least one new project per year, developing future works in open workshops and readings, and continuing their commitment to all-ages productions and community work. Their mission is to ensure that puppet, mask, and media-infused Hyper-theater remains a vibrant component of the fabric of Los Angeles.
