Young Thespians to Perform Minatory Mansion This Weekend at Pomona College

This weekend, the Claremont School of Theatre Art will perform Minatory Mansion as their annual summer production. The CSTA is a summer theatre academy for local children ages 11 to 15. They attend theatre classes at Pomona for five weeks each summer, and the program culminates with a theatrical production.

The play Minatory Mansion is an original work written by LaTiana Culbreath, an ’00 Pitzer alumna who majored in theatre via Pomona’s Theatre Department. A mix of scripted and improvised scenes, the play is set in an offbeat mansion with mischievous and maniacal forces that plague its residents and visitors. It’s directed by Ben Acland ’07, Jocelyn Matsuo ‘06, adjunct instructor Darren Blaney, and movement instructor Shakina Nayfack.

Performances take place Thursday through Saturday at 7 p.m., with matinee shows on Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $9 for adults and $7 for children ages two through 12. For reservations and ticket sales, call (909) 607-4396. The performances will be located at the Virginia Princehouse Allen Theatre at the Seaver Theatre Complex at 300 E. Bonita Avenue.
