CSUB Theatre for Young Audiences

This trio of classic Mercer Mayer stories takes a close look at the things that go bump in the night—and finds they are not as scary as they first appear. This delightful musical incorporates giant puppets and encourages its young audience to find the courage to overcome their own nighttime fears.

"Studying at the CSUB Theatre Department allowed me to experiment with projects and roles that shaped the actor I am today. They gave me space and tools to create art —regardless of size and scope — always encouraging creativity, spontaneity and hard work. I was lucky to have what I did in the theatre program at CSUB and continually draw on my time there for inspiration."

—Jeff Lepine, Artistic Director of The Peoples Improv Theater, NYC

"CSUB Theatre cultivates artists as they take responsibility for and initiative in their craft. It offers support and countless possibilities for students who are committed to growth."

—Miguel Torres, CSU Fullerton MFA Program
