Light Falling Down- Oceanside Theatre Company is proud to present the world premiere of Light Falling Down by Aimee Greenberg with previews starting this Wednesday and opening Saturday, October 26. This production is directed by Christopher Williams (also the Artistic Director of Oceanside Theatre Company) who says about this new play “We still struggle to forgive the sins of our ancestors and to forgive each other. It takes courage and an acceptance of humility to do so.”

Set against the backdrop of WWII in Poland (1942) and present day California, Ms. Greenberg’s play is a haunting and illuminating drama inspired in part by the true stories of female survivors of the Shoah, now living in Southern California. The story follows Alice who finds a young Jewish girl hiding underground in her garden. Alice is faced with the decision to either turn her in to the Nazis or to keep her hidden in the dark. But Alice has a secret, too. Intertwined is the story of Tuvia, her daughter Ava, and a neighbor in California today. LIGHT FALLING DOWN explores the nature of survival, the human spirit, and forgiveness.

Christian Youth Theater presents A LITTLE PRINCESS -A Little Princess is based on Francis Hodgson Burnett’s children’s novel, popular since the late 19th century. The story has been made into several films, including the darling little Shirley Temple Fox film in 1936. Separated from her father, and the open-hearted Africans who have helped him raise her, young Sara Crewe is sent to boarding school in London. When things go badly for her there, her imaginative powers come to the rescue – helping to transform a drab institution into a place of magic and mystery. As the girl wins the affection of the other boarders she draws the ire of Miss Minchin, the dour headmistress; Sara is made a servant to the institution when her father is reported dead, and his fortune seized. Sara counters all Miss Minchin’s best efforts to degrade her with the grace and virtue of a little princess.
