Ellen Weisser Endowed Theatre Showcase

The Ellen Weisser Endowed Theatre Showcase supports a CSUSB Department of Theatre Arts production each year. The inagural Ellen Weisser Endowed Theatre Showcase production, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying filled the theatre to capacity at every performance. This year, the Ellen Weisser Endowed Theatre Showcase presents Once Upon A Mattress! If you thought you knew the story of ‘The Princess and The Pea,’ you may be in for a surprise! Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some sidesplitting shenanigans.

On behalf of the students, faculty, and staff of the CSUSB Department of Theatre Arts, thank you Stan and Ellen for creating this wonderful endowment!
