NOTE: THE PLAY IS NOT @ THE CHURCH, THAT'S JUST THE REFERENCE ADDRESS FOR THE PICK-UP SITE - WE MEET THE SHUTTLE THERE.
Some of us saw this before, and it was so good (AND.....our member Peppur Chambers wrote/produces it!!) we want to go back and see it again (discount tickets help too!).
She wants him to save her; he wants to save himself...a band saves them both.

The Build UP is a theatrical piece that is part play and part musical performance. The story, to be performed by 5 main actors in an LA mansion/private home known as “The Castle”, is about a female filmmaker, KALIEGH who is feeling neglected both by her film career and her husband (CHRISTOPHE) as he tries to find himself in his new career as a music manager after being downsized. As a result, she confides in a cute plumber who happens to come for a house call. The Build UP is an intimate, yet powerful performance that will literally take place in the kitchen, the living room, the upstairs bedroom and finally the roof top where the story Builds UP to a climax that ends in Christophe’s band performing live.The audience will be up-close and personal with the actors and move from room to room. The audience will also have the opportunity to stay in one room with the actors or follow the story to another room.
The address given is where the shuttle service will pick us up and then take us to the private home (i.e., the venue where the play will be performed). Please arrive at the corner of Gower and Carlos absolutely no later than 6:15pm (shuttle only runs from 6:30-7:00, we will try to get on the first run so we can have a glass of wine @ the house before the show). Use Hollywood Presbyterian Church, 1760 North Gower, Hollywood CA 90028 as a reference. You will be given the private home location once you board the shuttle service. Let's try to arrange carpools after we see where everyone is coming from.
You can park in surrounding areas near the pick-up/drop-off location of the shuttle service. Please consider carpooling. There is no street parking near the venue.
Due to the play taking place in different rooms and floors within the house which may require standing, please wear comfortable shoes! You will be going up and down stairs. There is no elevator access.
