This semi-formal event, the first-ever fundraiser for the Mysterium Theater, promises a full evening of top-flight entertainment. First up at A Winter's Eve is a wine and appetizer reception, where you can browse and bid on silent auction items. That's followed by a seated dinner, set to include Cornish game hen, an orzo and vegetable combo, salad, dessert and hot cider, or wassail. Then you'll be treated to a musical revue featuring hits from the Great American Songbook by the Gershwins, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin, performed by a cast of 24 of Mysterium's finest actor-singers. As a capper to this festive evening, take advantage of the quick ballroom and swing lesson, so you can dance the rest of the night away to big-band music. Learn More

This is a children's theatre production and it wasn't advertised this way, so when it started I was surprised to find that the actors were all children. They were as can be expected from children actors, but the adult who was at the box office and the lady with the program were both unpleasant and rude. One threw the ticket envelope to me and the other didn't even offer to hand me a program, I had to ask for one in order to get it.
This is the enduring classic…..The audience will have more fun than Alice as she falls down the rabbit hole into Wonderland and meets such strange characters as The Mad Hatter, The March Hare, The Red Queen and of course, Tweedledee and Tweedledum. This play is performed by some of the best youth actors, ages 10 – 21, in Orange County and surrounding areas.

About the Ticket Supplier: La Habra Depot Theatre
The La Habra Community Theatre began in 1976 as a Children's Theatre project of the City's newly established Cultural Arts Council. The first production was Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. It was performed in La Habra High School's lecture hall since the city did not have a Community Performing Arts Facility.
At the same time, the 1909 Pacific Electric Depot building stood empty and in danger of demolition if it was not restored to a functional role in the community. Planning for its renovation as a Community Performing Arts Facility was initiated by the Mayor of La Habra and supported by the City Council as well as many community members. The "train station", or depot, was then moved across the street to its current location in Portola Park to integrate it into the master plan for the redevelopment of downtown La Habra.
Funding to restore the depot and convert it to a Theatre came largely from the Federal Government Restoration of Historical Landmarks. "The Depot" was declared Orange County Historical Landmark Site #14.
In January of 1980, the Children's Theatre project was expanded to incorporate adult theatre. Then, in July of 1982, the 100 members of the Community Theatre moved into the Depot Playhouse. The first performance in the restored building was the musical Oklahoma. On August 15, 1995 the Depot Playhouse became a non-profit tax-exempt organization and officially became know as Depot Theatre of La Habra. The theatre's board of directors and all production committees are comprised of community volunteers. The Depot Theatre is one of the few community organizations which functions without a single paid staff member.
