LIKE A FAST MOVING TRAIN
From 2007 to 2011, Chapman University Professor Tamiko Washington taught, mentored, and honed the talents of Casey J. Adler, Sean Burgos, and Andre Stojka in voice, movement, and theatrical performance. By the time these students were ready to graduate, they were also ready to create a professional theatre company with their professor and friend. Each of these unique individuals came together with the drive, ambition and obsession to tell the most engaging stories on stage.
Two months after its foundation - on May 25, 2011 - the company made its debut with a riveting production of two one-act plays at The Ivy Substation in Culver City, CA (home of "The Actors Gang"). The plays included The Indian Wants the Bronx by Israel Horovitz and Tom & Jerry by Jim Geoghan.
In its debut, ACE embraced an astounding reception from the audience. Just another incentive for the company to continue bringing great theatre to Los Angeles.
For over 5 years, ACE has continued to bring engaging stories to the stage. Whether it is with it's mainstage productions, or through its annual new playwrights festival, OC-Centric in which new writers are handpicked and given the opportunity to have their original plays produced; ACE is at the forefront of telling great stories!
