Welcome! My name is Pam Marks and I created Tableside Theater with the hopes of bringing Theater to new places. I have an affection for community theater that
started over 20 years ago and I’m excited about watching our community embrace the arts. I am fortunate to have many talented friends who write, act, direct, and
are passionate about sharing their love of the stage, wherever that stage may be.
My husband Darryl and I owned and operated a restaurant just off Melrose in Los Angeles
where we were proud to offer music, art exhibits, mystery dinner theater and various other forms of entertainment. We welcomed the talent because we delighted in being
able to offer our diners a complete evening of entertainment while supporting local artist and up and coming talent . We also provided food for the nearby studios,
feeding casts and crews.
Our scripts are a combination of locally written plays by a talented team of authors and nationally recoginized scripts that fit flexibility when it comes to staging. We rehearse in
our own studio and turn around time from idea to performance can be in a matter of days. This way we keep fresh and current material in front of our audience.
Our talented, creative writing team works in a fun, energetic atmosphere with an equally talented group of actors where improvisation is a very natural part of our process.
We embrace our audience and even occasionally pull them into the act.
Thank you for visiting our website and I hope to see you at our next tableside theater!
