The entire show seemed strained and staged with fakery. The opening act of Ben Morrison and photos of his red Honda left much to be desired. I don't believe he connected with the audience which was predominately OLD! Adjusting his attempt at humor for an older crowd may have saved him, but it was a crash and burn situation.
Bill Engle's stunt was extremely disappointing 10 minutes into the act. The so called audience "volunteers" were most likely regulars or groupies, or students from a local drama class. Nothing about it was belivable. Our group left feeling deflated after anticipating a humorus fun evening out. I wouldn't recommend this event to anyone, don't waste your money.

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.
