the El Centro

The El Centro Theatre’s Chaplin Stage is where our inaugural production is happening. Here’s a profile of the theater, with an interview with one of the current managers.

El Centro has a rich and extensive history and should be considered an LA theatrical treasure. It began as The Circle, a converted corner grocery store at Waring and El Centro Avenue by a group of UCLA students in 1947. Once a silent picture house and then a mechanic’s garage, the New Theatre (now the Chaplin Stage) opened a year after the Circle. Since their founding both the Circle and the Chaplin have housed world premieres and cutting-edge theatre.

We are very excited to be presenting our first show at a venue so rich in LA theater history.
