In accordance with current LA County Public Health Department guidelines we have updated our policies on vaccinations and mask wearing. Please see below, get vaccinated, and protect yourself and others!

Theatre 40 vaccination and mask policies as of September 1, 2021

All Theatre 40 audience members and guests as well as volunteers, who attend our productions must be fully vaccinated and must present their official vaccination card (photocopy accepted) to the box office person when they arrive at the theater. Anyone who shows up at the theater to attend or usher but does not have their vaccination card available to show to the box office person will not be allowed to attend the performance and will be asked to leave. If you are not fully vaccinated or will not have received full vaccination by the date you wish to attend, do not reserve tickets until you have been fully vaccinated and have your card.

Mask wearing:
It is Theatre 40’s policy to adhere to The Los Angeles County Public Health Department Covid-19 guidelines. All vaccinated or non-vaccinated people, including volunteers and audience members, must also adhere to the dictated County guidelines. The Los Angeles County Public Health Department says all vaccinated and non-vaccinated people must be masked indoors and that policy will be strictly enforced at Theatre 40 at every performance and temperature checks will occur at the box office.

We thank you for your cooperation.


Death, With Benefits

World Premiere
January 27 – February 20, 2022

A Play by John Strysik
Directed by Jeff G. Rack
Produced by David Hunt Stafford

This is Death, With Benefits:

The play is a dark comedy and focuses on and is inspired by the terribly true story of the infamous Killer Grannies of Santa Monica. Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction but in Death, With Benefits, fiction is funnier. Get some Life Insurance and don’t miss this new Killer of a Comedy! It is a wonderful new play and promises to be hilarious in very much an Arsenic and Old Lace fashion. We are very proud to bring it to you and are certain you will enjoy it.
