from May 20 through 29 at the Avery Schreiber Theatre, 11050 Magnolia Blvd, North Hollywood, CA 91601.

CHAMPS is a charter high school in Van Nuys with a great bunch of talented kids and dedicated teachers who put on amazing events with a fraction of the resources available to schools like LACHSA or downtown’s High School of the Visual and the Performing Arts.  “Becoming Memories” Arthur Giron’s evocative play is an ode to grandparents.  It uses real life stories to follow five Midwestern families through three generations, creating a richly textured portrait of small town America from 1911 to the present.

Performances will be on Fridays at 7 pm, Saturdays at 8 pm, and Sundays at 2 pm and 7 pm. For tickets, call (800) 838-3006 or visit  Prices are from $15 to $25.
