Business Description

The Found Theatre was established in Long Beach in 1974 to provide the community with low-cost, intimate, quality, alternative theatre, and to provide actors, directors, and technicians with a home where they could refine their craft, experiment, learn from each other, and grow as artists. The company which evolved now includes people from a broad range of backgrounds, who share a desire to bring a social conscience, a sense of humor, and a high standard of professional quality to their work at the Found. For 36 years, the alternative/experimental Found Theatre has been producing original works and skewed classics with a flair for the hilarious, a zinging social conscience, and a constantly changing mixture of multi-media, slapstick, over-the-top eloquence, flying props, and much more. The Found takes its cue from the outer limits of the imagination. Expect everything from Imelda Marcos on inline skates, to luminous collapsing walls of waterbottles, to enormous stacks of dancing dishes, to oversized hamster wheels descending from the ceiling.
