2022 Season Announcement

Homecoming: Celebrating 20 Years in Bixby Knolls

2022 will mark LBSC’s 20th year as Long Beach’s full-time classical theatre company. Though the name of the theater itself has evolved from the fledgling Black Box Theater to the Richard Goad Theater and now The Helen Borgers Theater, LBSC’s mission has stayed the same: bringing the classics to life for the people of Long Beach. After 20 years of serving our community from our home in the heart of Bixby Knolls, we present a year exploring the idea of coming home.
