NTC’s announcement of our ninth season will be out soon, but we couldn’t wait to tell you about the first production in our lineup, taking place outside at the Hyde Bandstand.
Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992 is a dissection of the 1992 Los Angeles protests after the trial regarding the beating of Rodney King by the police. This stunning work of documentary theatre uses the verbatim words of those who experienced the event as well as those who reflected on how the moment scarred Los Angeles and captured the nation’s attention. A piece more relevant now than ever, Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992 speaks directly to the heart of the issues of race, class, and access still roiling our country.
COVID Protocols– What to Expect at Our Outdoor Performances
All performers are vaccinated and will not be wearing masks. They will be wearing microphones and their voices will be amplified. Seating starts 25 feet away from the bandshell. The field where the audience will be seated is large, so we encourage our attendees to spread out when seating themselves.
