Quotes & Highlights

“…terrific performances… "- SF Bay Guardian
“…the acting, too, is deftly done, with an array of interesting characters…” – Contra Costa Times

California Palm, a warm, comedic drama written by Michael Struthers and directed by award-winning director Virginia Abascal, makes its premiere at the Shelton Theater. In a rundown used-car dealership in a tiny southwest town, two brothers deal with declining sales and new relationships that strain their happy home. When a female firebrand from LA buys their dealership, they are plunged into an all-or-nothing sales contest that threatens the hopes and dreams of everyone involved.

The cast includes: Maggie Grant*, Eric Fraisher Hayes*, Stu Klitsner*, Grace Lee, and Kevin Tierney (*Appearing courtesy of Actors Equity Association).
