THE HUNGER ARTISTS THEATRE COMPANY
ANNOUNCES CLOSING ITS DOORS IN DECEMBER 2012
It is with great sadness that we announce the closing of The Hunger Artists Theatre Company in December 2012.
Since its inception the company has strived to produce thought provoking edgy original and published works from a variety of playwrights. We opened our doors with the idea that we could produce shows outside the conventional box of theatre. The company fulfilled its mission statement over and over again by tweaking the classics and offering a home to new playwrights and material.
Founded in 1996 by a group of longtime friends, The Hunger Artists Theatre Company is the first Orange County-based alternative theater to grow out of Orange Coast College's Repertory Theater. While at Coast, the future members of The Hunger Artists honed their craft as actors, directors, playwrights and technicians, while developing the hip, smart, irreverent attitude and subversive theatrical sensibility that would later earn them notice as one of the county's most adventurous and unpredictable small theater companies.
We, as a company, extend a much appreciated thank you to everyone who acted, designed, directed and volunteered over the years. We would also like to thank the cities of Fullerton and Santa Ana for helping us make our home in the store front theatre community. The theatre proved that a group of people could create something wonderful and amazing out of nothing and give people pause to think and to push the boundaries of conventional theatre. We have had a fantastic time producing and sharing so many shows with the public. The theatre and its company will be missed.
