The Program...

24th STreet Theatre is offering matinee performances for Middle and High School classes in September 2018 and Spring 2019 (Dates TBD).  A leader in Arts Education and 15 year partner with  LAUSD, this program is in line with our one-of-a-kind Enter Stage Right program, that serves as an introduction to theatre for more than 8,000 local students each year.

ICE opened during the spring of 2018, and it was critically acclaimed and met with enthusiasm by patrons across Los Angeles. Perhaps most importantly, our large body of patrons who are immigrants found the story to be authentic and true to their own experiences.

Given the times we live in, we believe that we need to bring middle and high school students into this conversation about immigration. And given our 15 years of experience with arts education, we can empower students to examine the themes and content of ICE and simultaneously introduce them to the art form of live theatre.

The ICE field trip program includes:

  • a dynamic pre-trip workshop for each participating class with one of the best teaching artists in LA

  • a field trip to 24th STreet Theatre where students experience the play ICE

  • a post-show Q & A immediately following the performance with the actors, the director, and the stage manager of ICE wherein students will grapple with the content of the play and discuss the collaborative process of how we brought ICE to life

Some LAUSD schools may qualify for a free trip through Arts Education Branch support.

The Play...

Written by Leon Martell, commissioned by 24th STreet Theatre

Directed by Debbie Devine

Featuring Jesús Castaños-Chima, Tony Duran, Davitt Felder

It's 1988.

In the shadow of Dodger Stadium, two men arrive in the U.S. with big dreams... but no documents.

ICE tells the story of two immigrants from Mexico who grapple with what they are willing to sacrifice for success and with what it means to be American.
