Orange County Playwrights Alliance

Just another weblog

On June 26th at 3pm, OCPA Studios returns to the Mysterium stage with a new play by Donna Bader. Mysterium ( and the Orange County Playwrights Alliance ( continue their new style of reading that takes brand new plays and puts them before an audience at the most affordable price around. This is your opportunity to experience how new theater is created, get involved with the creative process, and experience a little “theater of the mind” while you’re there.

This month, OCPA Studios presents an intimate reading of Donna Bader’s sexy comedy, Cutouts. The war between the sexes meets the highest fashion in this new adult romp.

Donna Bader’s first play, A High Concept Killing, was read at Theatricum Botanicum in 2008 and received a staged reading at Gallimaufry’s 2nd Annual Laguna Beach Play Festival in November 2009.  Her 10-minute play, Will Work for Food, was produced as part of the “Holiday Stimulus Package” by STAGES Theatre in Fullerton in December 2009.  Her one-act comedy, The Reading of the Will, was given a staged reading as part of OCPA’s Discoveries series at the Empire Theatre in Santa Ana, California in April 2010.  She is a writer and attorney whose work has appeared in numerous legal magazines.  Donna Bader is a certified specialist in appellate law and is also the author of California Summary Judgment and Related Termination Motions.

OCPA Studios continues its first season with Cutouts on June 26th at 3pm. Admission is only $5. Contact Mysterium for reservations at 714-602-7975. You can also check their website at

The Orange County Playwrights Alliance (OCPA) began on April 1, 1995 with an informal meeting in an oncologist’s office in Anaheim. Since then, OCPA has become the fundamental group for playwrights in O.C., presenting staged readings and productions of plays at venues such as the Hunger Artists Theatre, the Vanguard Theatre, Rude Guerrilla Theatre Company, STAGESTheatre, Chapman University, the Curtis Theatre, and Newport Theatre Arts Center. OCPA playwrights have been produced across the United States, and have won national and regional playwrighting awards.
