Ray G. Clark Theater

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

Don’t miss the next performance at the Ray G. Clark Theater:

Barbara H. Clark – “They Still Walk Among Us”

On Saturday, October 26, 2019 at 2:00 p.m., the Institute of Musical Arts welcomes back our very own Storyteller Barbara H. Clark in her solo concert, “They Still Walk Among Us”. 

This spooky show was first presented to a sold out crowd at the Ray G. Clark Theater in 2013, and are some of Barbara’s best stories. We are delighted to have its revival launch our 10th storytelling season. 

There are many things in life that defy rational explanation, things we don’t understand. But the fact that we don’t understand them does not mean they aren’t real. Why does a perfect stranger seem vaguely familiar, or entry into an unfamiliar building cause a shiver? Are there unknown forces out there that impact our lives? 

You can buy tickets online at https://theystillwalkamongus.eventbrite.com or by visiting our website: www.imalosangeles.com or you can pay by cash, check or credit card, at the IMA office, while supplies last. We’d love to have you share in the festivities and enjoy an afternoon of great entertainment. As is our custom at the Institute of Musical Arts, a reception will follow the performance. Ours is a small, intimate theater, and seating is limited, so please, purchase your tickets today.  For additional information call: (323) 300-6578.
