Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Neil Simon follows the fish-out-of-water adventures of 20-year-old Eugene Jerome, the naive and lovable Brooklyn kid from Brighton Beach Memoirs, as he arrives in Biloxi, Mississippi for basic training in 1943. That's where he encounters an odd and eclectic group of fellow recruits -- not to mention a sadistic drill sergeant -- and has his first tentative experiences with love. Now in its 10th anniversary season, Repertory East Playhouse stages the show that starred Matthew Broderick in both its Tony-winning Broadway run and the 1988 film adaptation. Learn More

This was a terrific show! The entire cast was wonderful, no exception. The set really gave you the feeling of the cramped quarters. The actors even stayed in character and stayed in the attic during the intermission! Much better than we expected. We'll definitely seek out more shows at the Reperatory East Playhouse.

One of the most poignant stories of the Holocaust, The Diary of Anne Frank, sponsored by The Rubay Family, tells of Anne’s spirit, optimism and nobility as recounted in her famous diary kept during World War II.
In this gripping new adaptation by Wendy Kesselman, newly discovered writings from the diary of Anne Frank, as well as survivor accounts, are interwoven to create a contemporary impassioned story of the lives of people persecuted under Nazi rule. Anne Frank emerges from history a living, lyrical, intensely gifted young girl, who confronts her rapidly changing life and the increasing horror of her time with astonishing honesty, wit, and determination.
“We’re very proud to be able to tell this story,” said the REP’s Artistic Director Ovington Michael Owston. “Its message is timeless, and shows the true character of the human spirit.
The REP will create a Museum of Tolerance aimed at creating a human rights laboratory and educational center that will challenge the Santa Clarita community to understand the Holocaust in both historic and contemporary contexts and confront all forms of prejudice and discrimination in our world today.
