3-D Theatricals is the newest professional theatre company in the Southern California area. This means we have the unique opportunity to build our audience from the ground up! Our first season was packed with something to offer everyone from the classics like HELLO DOLLY and PETER PAN to the newer shows like ALL SHOOK UP and THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE.
3-D Theatricals is a family owned and operated company that started in October of 2009. TJ, Daniel and Gretchen Dawson (the three D’s) along with close friend Kami Seymour, set out to open a professional theatre company to not only bring the highest quality entertainment, but to provide more employment and artistic opportunities to the Orange County area. Our goal is to work with the other local and regional theaters to help each other cut production costs and rather than compete with each other, help each other thrive! We also hope to provide inspiration to youth to explore the arts further and see what heights it can take them.
As a brand new theater company we have already been recognized by critics and patrons alike for providing top notch quality theater by being compared to National Tours and Broadway! The Orange County community has welcomed us with open arms and we are simply thrilled to be here. There has been so much support from our growing audience whether it’s spreading the word to family and friends, volunteering for our concessions table, or usher staff, to offering artistic assistance backstage. Our goal is to provide a family atmosphere with our audience as well as our cast, staff and crew. As a group of actors ourselves, we know the importance and value of taking care of everyone who walks thorough our door. We have had nothing but glowing reviews and feedback from our actors and backstage crew members. We take pride in continuing to improve as we move forward from one production to the next!
3-D Theatricals has been featured in articles on the front page of the Orange County Register, Playbill.com, LA Stage Times, Equity News and Orange Coast Magazine. We have received the ‘Roar of the Crowd’ from Goldstar Events numerous times, recognition from the Orange County Register, “There is a new theater company in town, and they’re good”, and been highlighted in the Spark OC Blog. BroadwayWorld.com has this to say about 3-D Theatricals’ production of Hello Dolly, “The production values of this 3-D Theatricals presentation is deftly comparable to some of the countries best regional houses and civic light opera companies.”
