Mission Statement

phelia’s Jump is a non-profit regional theatre company based in Claremont and performing in Claremont and Upland. Ophelia’s Jump Productions was founded in 2013 by artists and educators who believe that the purpose of theatre is to create unending conversations, spark imagination, incite conscience, and elicit a visceral response. We aim to invigorate the creativity and intellect of our community by working with local emerging artists to do just that. OJP believes strongly in the communal power of great stories, dramatic ideas and the sincere engagement that audiences find in these theatrical events.

Description

Ophelia’s Jump is a non-profit regional theatre company based in Claremont and performing in Claremont and Upland. Ophelia's Jump Productions was founded by Beatrice Casagran, Randy Lopez and their daughter Caitlin Lopez. The Latinx couple who had a long history in theatre wanted to bring challenging, adult theatre to an area that was mainly served by companies producing family oriented musical theatre. During its first 6 seasons OJP has presented notable productions of well-known works by playwrights such as Albee and Williams and also newer works by emerging playwrights with an emphasis on presenting underrepresented points of view and works by female, queer, and minority playwrights. In additions OJP founded and presents the annual Midsummer Shakespeare Festival at the Sontag Greek theatre in Claremont. Working out of an intimate 50 seat studio, OJP continues to grow as a leader in the community with programs such as "Theatre for Good" which presents free staged readings to raise money for social and humanitarian causes and it's sponsorship of arts and artists in the community.
