The Moveable Feast
Paris – the 1920s. Ernest Hemmingway brought together a circle of American expatriate friends including: Aleister Crowley, Ezra Pound, Gertrude Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald and James Joyce and wrote about their lives, aspirations and interactions in the City of Lights. The work is considered by many to be Hemmingway’s greatest.
The Moveable Theatre Company
Los Angeles – the 2000s. A circle of theatre-loving friends gather to pool their talents and create a quality theatre experience that takes theatre to where the audiences are, rather than attempting to bring audiences to a specific location. With no venue-related overhead, costs are kept to a minimum, talent can be gathered from many locations and charities throughout Los Angeles can benefit from performances held as fundraisers.

Playwright Joe Musso (sitting) poses with the cast of The Logophile at the Altadena Library, Sunday, March 2nd. Two performances of the comedy helped raise over $1,100 for the Friends of the Library. From left to right: Danny Weitekamp, Cheryl Dent, Shirley McConnell, Nicholas Hosking, David Datz, Debra Kay Lee and J. Todd Howell.
The Logophile takes place in New Orleans in a French Quarter bookstore owned and operated by Robert, who inherited the business from his father, the world's greatest bookseller. The bookstore is haunted by Cyrus, a Civil War ghost who died in 1864. Jane, a pretty librarian drops by sometimes, as does Miss Sally, a New Orleans ghost tour operator. Suddenly, Julie, the girl who used to live next door who Robert secretly loves returns from twenty years in Paris with a startling revelation. And, it turns out Julie has a stalker - Phineas Endor, the bastard son of famous 16th Century necromancer Henrich Cornelius Agrippa von Nettesheim - and he has turned up in New Orleans just in time for Mardi Gras festivities. Will Robert tell Julie how he really feels about her? Will Julie escape the clutches of the evil Phineas? Will the bookstore survive? See The Logophile to find out!

THE MOVEABLE THEATRE COMPANY MISSION STATEMENT
The Moveable Theatre Company takes quality theatrical performances to audiences throughout Los Angeles, while using the performances to raise money for worthy charitable causes.
Most small organizations or clubs face the constant challenge of raising unrestricted funds for their worthy ongoing projects and programs.
Usually operating with a limited staff or a small team of dedicated volunteers – there are only so many car washes, bake sales or raffles that can be done – and still the need for more operating funds remains.
If you are looking for a creative alternative – consider hosting a show by The Moveable Theatre Company!
