Theatricum Carol Sing-Along

December 20th at 4pm on Zoom

FREE tickets available at

The holidays are a time for family and friends, even though this year looks quite different. At Theatricum, we’re gathering together on Zoom for an afternoon of festive carol-singing and a very special screening featuring our founder, Will Geer. 

In 1977, Emmy award winning television broadcaster and historian Keith Berwick embarked on an interview unlike any other. In a three part conversation he speaks with Santa Claus, Saint Nicholas and actor Will Geer about the historical origins of Christmas, the state of humanity, and the fate of the world moving forward. This rare glimpse into Geer’s personal essence is delightful and thought provoking. It reminds us, as an organization, where our roots began and solidifies our mission to elevate, educate and entertain. 

Please join us for some heart warming caroling and then settle down to watch this exclusive master class in historical, improvisational performance all as a part of Theatricum’s Holiday Fundraiser. 

Donations for Theatricum are gratefully appreciated during these uncertain times. We wish you all a safe and happy holiday season.

The Theatricum Jazz Brunch (BYO) Postponed

This event scheduled for December 5th, 11am to 2pm has been postponed due to new public health orders issued in Los Angeles County prohibiting gatherings with the exception of faith-based services and protests. 

Theatricum supports these measures to curtail the spread of Covid-19 and keep our community safe. As the musicians slated to perform at the Jazz Brunch belong to different households, the show has been postponed until we are able to produce the event safely and in compliance with local ordinances. Theatricum values your support. Stay healthy.
