Proud to be one of the leading ensemble-driven theatre companies in Southern California, Chance Theater recently won three Ovation Awards, including Best Production of a Musical – Intimate Theater, for its West Coast premiere of Triassic Parq – The Musical. The Chance also received an LADCC Award earlier this year for its reimagined revival of West Side Story. Twice named “Outstanding Arts Organization” by Arts Orange County, Chance Theater is also a recipient of the LADCC’s Polly Warfield Award for Excellence.
