A) Main Stage Productions – We currently produce 6 major productions a year. These productions are chosen by the Artistic Committee, and the directors may or may not be members of the company. These plays are cast from the company. These productions run for 4 or 5 weeks, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings at 8:00 pm, Sunday at 2:00, and sometimes Mondays at 8pm.
B) Rep Plays – Member-generated productions run on an occasional basis along with the main stage productions on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings at 8:00 pm. These are produced on a moderate budget and are totally cast by the member presenting the project. The entire cast must belong to Theatre 40. The director is the choice of the project presenter. Prospective Rep Plays are auditioned for the Artistic committee, usually twice a year.
C) Seminars – This is what the class is called that we teach Monday evenings for the Beverly Hills Adult School. The class consists of an introduction by the evenings’s director, usually a company member, a play reading by the members of Theatre 40, and a discussion of the play with class members, actors and director, as it relates to the theme of the current session.
D) Newsletter – Every month we send our members a newsletter which provides essential information such as casting dates and plays, seminar and meeting schedules. It also serves as an information exchange between members with working news, classified ads, etc. Also Changes in Addresses or Telephone Numbers.
