Founded in 2002, Little Fish Theatre is a San Pedro based playhouse on Centre Street downtown. Lisa Coffi, Founder and Producing Artistic Director, together with Associate Artistic Director Suzanne Dean, saw an opportunity to deliver high-quality productions year-round to an appreciative public, and never looked back. This year, Little Fish will fill more than 6,000 seats -- impressive for a 65-seat house.
“The intimate setting makes every play at Little Fish a unique theatrical experience,” says Lisa Coffi, Producing Artistic Director. “Every seat is close to the action. You can see every nuance of facial expression and interaction, drawing you into the happenings on-stage.”
Ensuring that every moment of theatrical performance is sheer magic is acclaimed director Stephanie Coltrin, the theater’s Managing Director, who joined the company in 2012. Known for her work as Artistic Director for Civic Light Opera of the South Bay and Hermosa Beach Playhouse, Stephanie has directed four recent productions at Little Fish Theatre, including The Love List and Bach at Leipzig, and she will also be directing a few shows in this year’s lineup.
