The Theater School and Sonoma Arts Live will partner to share the stage in Andrew’s Hall in the Sonoma Community Center.

The nonprofit Theater School was founded in 2015 by Libby Oberlin, who also serves as Sonoma Arts Live’s education director. The Theater School provides young kids and teens with experience in all aspects of theater and is dedicated to “authentic self expression, emotional intelligence and collaborative discovery.”

The former home of TTS was a 35-seat black box theater located in El Verano.

“While we will forever cherish laughing hysterically in summer camps, spontaneous lunchtime sing offs during rehearsals, and the many hilarious and heartwarming performances we created, we just outgrew our space,” said Oberlin. “We can now welcome larger audiences, create better sets, and provide more professional opportunities for Sonoma’s budding stars.”

Since 2015, Oberlin has directed the Sonoma Arts Live Teen’s ‘N Training program every spring and has also directed shows in SAL’s professional season.

“When the opportunity arose for SAL to rent the stage year round, we knew the time was right to partner with the Theater School, as both organizations share a passion to further the benefits of theater in our community,” said SAL Executive Artistic Director Jaime Love.

The Theater School’s debut will be Disney’s “Aladdin Jr.” running Nov. 15 to 18.
