Happy New Year!

2023 is off to a great start thanks to your support of TLC.

Thank you to all who read Lost Church Bulletin, all who attend our shows, and all who contributed to our End of Year Fundraiser.

You are keeping us going in numerous ways.

We’re rolling up our sleeves and getting ready for an action packed year ahead.

Can’t wait for good times ahead with you!

Thank you for your support of our End of Year Fundraiser 2022

We are so grateful to you!

We did fall short of our $20,000 goal, but we’re a scrappy bunch and always make the most of your support.

If you didn’t get a chance to donate, yet, don’t let the fundraiser being over stop you.


Knights of Revery 2023 Postcard

Residencies are made possible by the awesome promoters and performers and by you who donate to keep our theaters open.

Knights of Revery 3rd Thursday and Friday Residency (Rever’ency?!) kicks off this month.

WoW! O’ WoW! 

Are you longing for the mirthful, the tender, the fun, the outrageous, the kind, the irreverent and the surreal? Anything is possible when you join us, the Knights of Revery in the Realm of Dreams.

Interactive and psychoactive, our tittering and teetering theatrical experience has raving 5-star reviews. Join us, Sir Pomp and Sir Psycho, and journey between the realms of the conscious and unconscious, between fact and fiction, between here and now, between our creamy peanut butter and your smooth jelly.

You will leave knowing more people than when you arrived, and perhaps more about yourself and the collective unconscious. Every night is unique.

“The Knights of Revery are up to something really special… never seen an improv show like this before. Fun, touching, connecting, meaningful. Beautiful work, thank you so much!”-Joshua A.


Ticket Sales Alone Don't Keep Theaters Open...Donors Do

We STRONGLY RECOMMEND MASKS be worn while inside our theater to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Masks are no longer mandated by the State of California and are no longer required for entry, but are encouraged since colds, the flu, and COVID are on the rise.
