Diamond Ticketing Systems is pleased to announce the addition of the robust and critically renowned CHANCE THEATER located in the Anaheim Hills of Orange County California to its Easy-Ware online ticketing service.
The Chance is dedicated to the creation of exciting theatrical experiences, taking artistic risks, and collaborating with gifted artists on passionate and provocative plays and musicals. It produces powerful, socially-conscious and intimate productions. A major effort is to nurture and support local artists as well as inspire and empower creative young minds.
Proud to be one of the leading ensemble-driven theater companies in Southern California, Chance Theater recently won three Ovation Awards, including Best Production of a Musical – Intimate Theater, for its West Coast premiere of Triassic Parq – The Musical. The Chance also received an LADCC Award last year for its reimagined revival of West Side Story. The Anaheim City Council recently named the playhouse “the official resident theater company of Anaheim”. Twice named “Outstanding Arts Organization” by Arts Orange County, Chance Theater is also a recipient of the LADCC’s Polly Warfield Award for Excellence. Founded in 1999, it is focused on its goal of being Orange County’s premiere mid-size contemporary theater by contributing to a more compassionate, connected, and creative community. As a constituent member of Theatre Communications Group, Network of Ensemble Theaters, and the LA Stage Alliance, Chance Theater continues to bring national attention to the Southern California and Orange County theater scenes.
Local youth have priceless opportunities for multi-level creative experiences during 10-week courses offered by the playhouse for ages 12 – 18 years. The objective is to replace resources lost through funding cuts in arts programs in area schools. The focus is on ensemble-building in order to develop thoughtful, confident and generous artists. The programs are free to those accepted through an application and interview process.
The Speak Up – “Take a Chance” summer program offers young students such skills as problem-solving, critical and creative thinking, dealing with ambiguity and complexity, integration of multiple skill sets and cross-disciplinary tasks. The ultimate prize is the creation of an original theatrical work. And more experiences await for those who’ve gone through these creative-enhancing classes including Youth Theater Collective and Theater for Young Audiences.
The Chance Theater maintains an impressively entertaining production schedule.
