Personal Stories 2020 - The Quarantine Edition - Full 5 Show Video Package!


The Personal Stories videos have been very popular and now you can get all 5 and save some money! With a single purchase, get all 5 videos (which means a single $1.50 online fee instead of 5). Enjoy all 23 stories, from the comfort of the socically distanced location of your choice.  Pause for popcorn refills, rewind in case you laugh through a great line.

You purchase your ticket, we send you an email with a link, password and instructions.  If you purchase your package before August 3 we will send you the links and passwords for the available videos and you will receive the others once the are released.  All of the videos will be available through August 31.

We are making the tickets pay-what-you-can.  Starting at a modest $40 for the 5 videos, (we know these are tough financial times for many) and going up in stages in case you have some extra cash and want to help the theater during these incredibly difficult times. We turn 30 this August, and we are determined to be here to celebrate and be ready for 30 more! 

If you have already purchased one of the videos and want to upgrade to the full series send us an email and we can work that out for you. 

Follow our social media, or check our website for details. If you have any questions email us at  Due to quarantine we are not keeping our regular business hours in the office, so email is much more efficient for reaching us.

Fabulous stories, performed by their authors - funny, personal, touching and heartwarming. We promise there are no zoom meetings, or sourdough recipes, although a very cute Irish dog, the Flying Nun, and journies to France, Okinawa, and an avocado orchard in Ojai, not to mention an explostion that lead to a marriage - and so much more.

The response to these videos has been wonderful and is bringing in critically needed funds to help keep the theater alive.  We are so grateful to everyone involved - the performers, our director Maggie Mixsell and everyone who has purchased the videos and donated.
