Ray G. Clark Theater

The Institute of Musical Arts (IMA) is pleased to invite you to our ninth (9th) season of programming which has hosted fifty three storytelling concerts, as well as the “Tell Me A Story” workshop in the Ray G. Clark Theater. Since our inaugural 2010-2011 season we have been proud to present a wide array of storytellers, musicians and actors, some of whom have traveled from as far away as Maine and Australia, to share their gifts with you, our loyal and appreciative audience. Under the stewardship of our Creative Director, Barbara H. Clark, we have also launched the careers and cheered the performances of Women’s Voices, our own house ensemble of storytellers.

The intimate (50 seat) Ray G. Clark theater is ideal for live theatrical performances, storytelling concerts, poetry readings, student recitals and acoustical musical performances. Storyteller/playwright, Leslie Perry selected the theater for the production and presentation of his play “The Muse”.

With it’s raised thrust stage, and traditional 1920s California-Spanish proscenium styled arch, it invokes a classical, old-school theater tradition. The theater auditorium and adjacent reception hall, are available for performances and rehearsals. Audio or video recordings and still photographs of performances are also available; and our catering staff can provide snacks and refreshments before or after your event.

Art Perkins – “More Than Just A Game”

Saturday, April 27, 2019 at 2:00 p.m.

On Saturday, April 27, 2019 at 2:00 p.m., the Institute of Musical Arts welcomes Art Perkins with his solo performance of, “More Than Just A Game”.

For most TV viewers, and even for some real sports fans, football is just another sporting event. But to the players, it’s much more then just a game. Art Perkins, a former fullback with the Los Angeles Rams, and later, a recruiter for the Baltimore Ravens, is now a thoroughly entertaining storyteller. In this one-man show he provides a hilarious and insightful look at his perilous journey from a Texas high school to the National Football League. He even has a Super Bowl ring to show for it. Who knew football could be so funny?

You can buy tickets online: https://morethanjustagame.eventbrite.com, or by visiting our website: http://www.imalosangeles.com. You may also pay by  cash, check or credit card, at the IMA office, while supplies last.
