A young orphan. A lonely millionaire. A scheming con artist. A bevy of adorable children. And an impossible to resist dog named Sandy. ANNIE returns to the Cabrillo stage in an all-new production, this time with Sally Struthers as the incorrigible Miss Hannigan. Cabrillo’s Ovation Award-winner (Best Featured Actress, CINDERELLA) brings her comic genius to this Broadway classic. Featuring tuneful, Tony-winning songs (“Tomorrow,” “It’s a Hard Knock Life,” “Easy Street”), ANNIE has been made into two movies, and is about to go back to Broadway for the third time. ANNIE is family-friendly entertainment, and with Sally Struthers back onstage, it’s a winning production that can’t miss.
Ring Of Fire
The music of the legendary Johnny Cash comes to the Kavli stage in this Thousand Oaks premiere of RING OF FIRE. A multi-talented cast and onstage band bring to life all the famous songs of “the Man in Black.” More than thirty songs, including “I Walk The Line,” “A Boy Named Sue,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” and the title tune, paint a musical portrait of Johnny Cash. Though never impersonated, his remarkable life story is told through his music, climaxing in a concert that will both move and exhilarate. Though the ups and downs of Cash’s life are indicated through song, RING OF FIRE is suitable for all audiences, and promises to be a foot-stompin’ crowd-pleasin’ good time.
Once Upon A Mattress

Cabrillo’s all-new production of this Broadway favorite – which launched the career of a young Carol Burnett – will provide a fresh, contemporary spin on this popular tale. This Kavli Theatre premiere is perfect for the entire family. And you’ll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.
