Thoughts On Our 25TH Anniversary

When we started the Colony in 1975, most of us were young and working in television. We thought it would be fun to get back to our theatre roots--just for a while. If we had known that we would still be here a quarter century later, still producing award winning professional theatre, with a national reputation and the largest subscriber base of any small theatre in the area, we would have been utterly astounded.

And what a wonderful adventure it's been.

When I look back over our 25 years of continuous production, I am overwhelmed by the scope of the works we have been able to present--the reconceived classics, the world premiers by exciting new voices, the big Broadway musicals miniaturized for our intimate space, the soul-wrenching dramas, the hilarious comedies, all the tears, all the laughter, all the joy we have shared with our audiences. I am still astonished and amazed by that ancient, unique, remarkable, and magical experience that is live theatre.

You may have heard the we have outgrown our Silver Lake home, and are planninga move later this year to a beautiful new theatre in Burbank. Located in the bustling Media Center district, we will be in the midst of many fine restaurants; there will be lots of free parking adjacent ot the theatre; the lobby wil be spacious; the restrooms will be large and well equipped (no waiting in line!); the seats wil be comfortable; the heating and air conditioning will be far better than adequate. Most important of all, the theatre itself has been designed to retain that special intimacy between actors and audience that has always been the hallmark of a Colony production.

In the years to come in our new home, we will continue to bring you the beloved world classics, the rediscovered treasures, the cream of contemporary repertoire, the widest range of comedies, dramas and musicals, all produced with uncompromising professionalism and loving care.

The wonderful adventure continues!
