The Year of 2021

We’re Back On Stage At Last!

After our long and unexpected ‘intermission,’ By the Sea Productions is delighted to invite you to our re-opening premiere of the one-woman show, “Shirley Valentine” starring Morro Bay actress, Sharyn Young, directed by Sandy Bosworth. The play, written by Willy Russell, depicts the life of a bored British housewife, driven to having conversations with her kitchen wall. When a friend wins a trip to the Greek Islands and invites her along, Shirley’s world opens up with new adventures. This funny, heartwarming play was also a popular movie. “Shirley Valentine” plays one weekend only, August 13-15, with performances on Friday and Saturday evening at 7pm and a Sunday matinee at 3 pm. To ensure
our audiences comfort, there will be limited seating, so reservations are strongly recommended. Tickets are available online at, or call 805-776-3287.


PLEASE NOTE: BTSP will follow the CDC and State of California guidelines for our indoor productions. We have spaced our seating and encourage masks for your own safety. Our staff have all been  vaccinated and we will sanitize the area between shows. Masks and hand sanitizers will be available.
