The Playhouse

When I was a little girl my grandma used to take me to
Nine O'Clock Players.
It is a playhouse that puts on productions for children.

The Nine O'Clock Players helps support the services of Assistance League of Southern California defray the costs of productions and continue the development of outstanding plays to enrich the lives of children in the community. The mission of Nine O’Clock Players Auxiliary of Assistance League of Southern California is to bring live theatre to children and parents in the Los Angeles community. They are a “not-for-profit” philanthropic theatrical organization producing and performing the finest family entertainment for over 75 years.
It is a truly wonderful program.

Each year, two fully staged plays are chosen from classic children’s literature. Tuesdays and Thursdays during the run of each show, nine invitational performances are specifically presented at no charge for economically and physically challenged children.

The productions are also offered to school groups as an addition to their normal educational curricula. Performances are offered at a special ticket price, and NOP supplies these groups with free educational kits to enhance each presentation. The money collected from Field Trip productions and weekend audience ticket sales pay for transportation and tickets for the invitational children.

Seriously if you live in the LA area please go and support this wonderful organization. Besides the fact that you are helping a great cause it is an awesome afternoon to spend with your kids.

I adored going to the play with my grandma when I was a girl. My mom wanted to carry on the tradition with my girls. I can already see the memories being formed.Charlotte waits in line with her ticket.

They thought she was a princess.

The girls are still talking about how

much fun they had.
Thank you Grandma Digger.
