Ray G. Clark Theater

The Institute of Musical Arts (IMA) is pleased to invite you to our tenth (10th) season of programming which has hosted fifty six 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.

Women’s Voices – “Is That My Job”

On Saturday, March 14, 2020 at 2:00 p.m., the Institute of Musical Arts welcomes back the twelfth installment of our WOMEN’S VOICES Storytelling Concert Series, with their performance, “Is That My Job?”.

Did you ever have to hire a teenager? Not fun, huh. Do you remember your own first job?  Was that fun? Well a Youth Center decides to start a mentor program to prepare teen girls for the workplace. The coordinator  interviews four retired women to become volunteer mentors. In discussing their varied experiences, the five women share unique and hilarious stories from their own work histories. The show will feature Women’s Voices members: Johna Madigan, Margaret Mitchell, Beverly Morgan, Tina Tomiyama and Roylene Walker.

You can buy tickets online: https://isthatmyjob.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. As is our custom at the Institute of Musical Arts, a catered reception will follow the performance.

Ours is a small, intimate theater and seating is limited, so please purchase your tickets in advance, or call the theater TWO HOURS before the performance to confirm ticket availability.  Tickets for the performance are $20.00.  For additional information call:  (323) 300-6578.
