Chino Community Theatre’s 8th annual “3 on the Edge” Festival kicks off with the biting comedy ART, written by Yasmina Reza (translated by Christopher Hampton), and directed by Jeff Richards.

ART centers on three friends, Serge, Marc and Yvan, and their wildly different reactions to a painting Serge has just purchased. Serge loves his new completely white canvas and has it prominently displayed in his apartment, but when his best friend Marc ridicules it, their friendship is severely tested – and poor, hapless Yvan is caught in the middle. With razor-sharp dialogue and beautifully defined characters, ART is a modern classic that is simple but profound …or is it just a blank canvas that says nothing?

Featuring Pete Bennett, Chris Goldfarb and Ron Hastings

WARNING: Due to strong language and adult content, this show is recommended for MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY.

Chino Community Theatre presents the second show of its 8th annual “3 on the Edge” Festival, BOY GETS GIRL, written by Rebecca Gilman and directed by Christopher Diehl.

New York reporter Theresa Bedell reluctantly goes on a blind date with Tony, a friend of a friend. Unfortunately, sparks definitely do not fly, and when she decides not to see him again, Tony doesn’t get the message. At first flattered (albeit slightly annoyed) by his continuing attention, Theresa’s attitude gradually changes to one of fear and fury when Tony starts to menace her and those around her. With rich insight, compelling characters and a tense, suspenseful story, BOY GETS GIRL probes the dark side of dating in the 21st century.

Featuring Samantha Armenta, Brady Greer Huffman, Hugh Kinslow, Ken Lay, Tracy Lay, John Lynd and Amanda Walker

WARNING: Due to strong language and adult content, this show is recommended for MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY.
