Beleagured stage skeds holiday shows
The Pasadena Playhouse, recovering from its financial problems, announced its winter holiday productions on Monday.
These will include the Intimate Opera Company’s “Amahl and the Night Visitors” (Dec. 16-18), “The Nutcracker Ballet” (Dec. 24-31) presented by the Pasadena Dance Theater, plus musical “Dangerous Beauty,” which will run in January on dates yet to be set.
The Pasadena Playhouse, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on May 11, received court approval of its financial reorganization plan on July 7.
The theater has launched a $1 million fundraising campaign to help with its long-term future.
