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 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.

Barbara H. Clark

Saturday, November 3, 2018 at 2:00 p.m.

On Saturday, November 3, 2018 at 2:00 p.m., the Institute of Musical Arts welcomes back our very own Storyteller Barbara H. Clark in “Lord Knows I’m A Country Girl”, a solo performance of original stories. Barbara, a multi- award winning storyteller, never shies away from challenging issues.

“You can take the girl out of the country but you can’t take the country out of the girl.” …. It took a visit “back home” for Barbara to learn the truth of that saying. Now she shares with us some of the “back home” stories of her own country life while growing up in rural Maryland. Laugh, cheer, and maybe shed a tear or two as you follow her through the joy and sadness of those formative years. You will understand why she still thinks of herself as a country girl.

You can buy tickets online, just click here: https://lordknowsimacountrygirl.eventbrite.com or visit 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.
