About this show

"You won't find more professional theater--for children or adults--anywhere," raves LA PARENT. It's a surprising and delightful world premiere Rudie-DeCarlo musical comedy unveiling the real versions of Hansel & Gretel, The Little Mermaid and the Japanese legend of Kamikakushi - all rolled into one wild ride, presented in Actors' Repertory Theatre's signature commedia-circus style. A hilarious array of characters prove that although the grass may be greener, the ocean bluer and the air clearer on the other side of the international date line, home is really always where the heart is. EXTENDED by audience demand, Actually! features Abby Adams, Elodie Cammarata, Adam Jennings, Juliet Ladines, Katie Lee, Cydne Moore and Alejandra Nuñez as the actors creating the play with the participation of the audience who become part of the adventure, along the way offering a thumbs down to selfishness, gluttony, pollution and waste, assuring that the stories reach their deserved happily-ever-afters. Tunes by renowned songsters E. Rudie and Matthew Wrather, graphic artist Vincent's charming projections and award-winning designer Ashley Hayes's quirky costumes ably support DeCarlo and Rudie's clever and classic book. Post-show photo opportunities with the actors, birthday and tea parties, too.
