Baja Shakespeare 2020

Welcome to Baja Shakespeare’s 20th season. Yes 20! A miracle built on blood, sweat and tears. This year our production is: “A Baja Chorus Line” inspired by and loosely based on the 1985 director Richard Attenborough movie and Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning Broadway production “A Chorus Line.”

Our theatre company, based in Los Barriles, began in 2000 with MacBeth, followed by 12 years of the Shakespeare comedies. Since then we have expanded to farcical fairy tales, British pantos and even a Woody Allen comedy, always writing our own scripts. We incorporate singing & dancing with a live band! We are excited and very proud to celebrate year 20 with you!  

“A Chorus Line” is about auditions, performers and the process of getting cast or not. It’s about folks putting themselves out there, perhaps getting cast or perhaps not even getting recognized or seen. How we are individuals, but also part of the whole: or a chorus line. All equal. All nervous. All different. All creating together.

Our Baja production will have an original music score under the musical direction of Lynn Goetting. Our fabulous costumes are designed by Colleen Baltzer. Our professional choreographers Robin Jackman and Victoria Olenich are leading the dance ensembles. The script is written, and rehearsals are underway with our beloved returning director Camilla Ford. Our stage and set are being built. We are thrilled to transform this show into our 20th Baja Shakespeare comedy! We hope you will consider joining us for one of our seven performances.
