The attractions are “Thoroughly Modern Millie,” which opened Thursday night and will play this weekend and next during the evenings, and “Bugsy Malone,” ticketed for two weekends of matinee performances.

Tom Titus The mobsters are coming to Laguna this weekend, but they're all too young to drive the getaway car. Some 54 children, ranging in age from 5 to 15, are featured in the cast of "Bugsy Malone," the latest offering from the No Square Theater, opening tonight for a single weekend at Laguna Beach High School's Artists Theater. "Kids today are inundated with television, video and computer games," says Roxanna Ward, artistic director of the Laguna theater group.

Suzie Harrison Out of the minds and hearts of many Lagunatics, No Square Theatre has grown to take it's place as Laguna's community theatrical forum. Lagunatics is a wildly popular musical roast about life on the coast, a production that sells out every year. "The response to Lagunatics was so incredible it was apparent that this town needed a community theater organization," said No Square Theatre's founder and artistic director, Bree Burgess Rosen.

Tom Titus Up the street a few blocks is the Laguna Playhouse, a theatrical edifice entering its 82nd season and, for the past decade, a showcase for professional theater. When the playhouse shifted from a community theater to a full Equity operation, it left a space in Laguna for theater of the nonprofessional variety, involving members of the community, particularly children. This is the role now being filled by the No Square Theater. This group, with perhaps the most unusual name of any theatrical organization in Orange County, was born 10 years ago as the outgrowth of a musical roast entitled "Lagunatics."

Tom Titus They say if you want a job done right, give it to a busy person, and the new artistic director of Laguna Beach's No Square Theater certainly qualifies in that regard. Steve Josephson is a director, an actor, a choreographer, a dancer, a producer, a playwright and a teacher, as well as a husband and father. His theater commitments have taken him from New York to Paris, to Edinburgh, Scotland and to Los Angeles. Home base, however, is Laguna, which is one reason he recently accepted the top spot as artistic director of No Square Theater, the Art Colony's community theater group.
