In its 78-year history, NINE
O’CLOCK PLAYERS THEATRE FOR CHILDREN has
never missed a season, producing more than 2,900
performances. Founded in 1929 by a group of
Assistance League of Southern California members, Nine
O’Clock Players Theatre for Children raised funds

day care to the children of employees working at nearby
studios. Assistance League of Southern California, a
nonprofit organization founded in 1919, serves more than
100,000 children, families, seniors and individuals with
critical needs each year.
Today, Nine O’Clock Players Theatre for Children

staged musicals in the fall and spring of each year.
Productions are performed for more than 16,000 children
annually -- a third of whom are disadvantaged. Nine O’Clock
