Theater in the Inland Empire is in a period of rapid transition. A new cast of players has taken over most of the leading roles. A year ago, former L.A. director Peggy Shannon vowed to keep the fledgling Riverside Repertory Theatre going, even though she had recently taken a job as artistic director of Sacramento Theatre Company. Riverside Rep presented five one-night programs during 1998-1999. But after the last one in March, Shannon resigned.

Mythology, folk tales and fairy tales, Carl Sandburg and Lewis Carroll, puppets, dancers and mimes, self-esteem, moral values and kite flying--all were part of the 12th Theatre Festival for Young Audiences held over the weekend at Cal State San Bernardino. The quality of the performances at the event sponsored by the Southern California Educational Theatre Assn. was as variable as the weekend's weather. Saturday, bleakly cold, started with a choice offering.

Inside at the Ford. That's the new name for the sub-100-seat space on the bottom floor of the Los Angeles County-owned John Anson Ford Amphitheatre in the Cahuenga Pass. The space was known for years as the Taper, Too, because its most frequent occupant was the Mark Taper Forum. The downtown company used the small Hollywood location for full seasons of intimate productions as well as play workshops (including the L.A. public's first glance of "Angels in America") and readings.

For her 43rd birthday on Nov. 20, Peggy Shannon gave herself an unorthodox present: She hosted a board meeting. It was the first gathering of the board of her new theater company, Riverside Repertory Theatre. By the fall of 1999, she hopes to open a season on an Equity contract, somewhere in Riverside, her birthplace and hometown. It would be the only fully professional theater company in the area.
