4th Annual Long Beach Poppin' Play Festival
Theatre. Music. Art. A thrilling new happening for Long Beach Arts Month in October, with 11 World-Premiere Plays from some of the best local talent around! This year's festival promises to be the best yet, with stories including hallucinogenic, guilt-and-heavy-metal-fueled wilderness survival tales (Headlights & Bush) and mysterious meditations on the the creative impulse, by way of ghost stories and lost artifacts of ancient A...mericana (Return to Thunder Mountain); tales of the day human beings break down the walls that separate them in dreams (Le Reve Collectif), and the bittersweet terror of the not-so-distant-past (Good Riddance, from the playwright who brought us Entropy General); plus, bravely experimental pieces that ruminate on family (Raised By Wolves), mortality (Garden of Ashes), and Alzheimer's (Bring on the Dancing Girls) - and much, much more!

***What Critics Have Said About Past Festivals***
"Alive Theatre has never been afraid to take chances. That willingness to put themselves out there makes them the type of folk who can successfully mount a new-play festival*+ That's just about as alive as theatre can get."
- Greggory Moore, Greater Long Beach (2010)

"The young company's already an institution; it's received critical acclaim and fan adulation. It's bold, no, scratch that, it's audacious. It's in our face but it's also in our mind. It's audacity challenges us and our hold on our lives, what we hold to be real, to be unreal..."
- James Scarborough, Grunion Gazette (2009)

"Judging by the chemistry of this galvanized group, along with their professionalism and talent, I predict a rash of breakout stars emerging from this group, as well as a thriving future for the company. . .Alive Theatre has the potential to be Long Beach's Steppenwolf (Chicago) or Actors Gang (LA)."
- Marchelle Hammack, Beachcomber Newspaper (2008)
