Artist Alliance at NCRT: Illusion and Travels with My Aunt

Artist Alliance at NCRT: The Illusion and Travels with My Aunt

Oceanside Museum of Art (OMA) presents a North Coast Repertory Theatre (NCRT) Collaboration juried exhibition for two consecutive, productions of THE ILLUSION and TRAVELS WITH MY AUNT.

This is a call to artists who are members of OMA Artist Alliance: you are invited to submit any number of entries for consideration in this juried art exhibition presented by Oceanside Museum of Art (OMA) that will take place at the North Coast Repertory Theatre (NCRT) Café and Gallery. Artists must be a member of Oceanside Museum of Art at any level with the Artist Alliance add-on.

Thank you for your submission! The majority of your submission fees and membership dues go to supporting the museum’s exhibitions and educational programming. Thank you again for being a part of OMA! If you have any questions about participation in this exhibition, please email Katie, the exhibition coordinator, at

February 22 – May 24, 2017

Submit artwork LOOSELY themed to one or both of the productions described below. Get creative! NO NUDITY PLEASE. Consider these theme key words:  Theatrical, magical, fanciful, historical, love themes, family

THE ILLUSION celebrates the magic and illusory nature of theatre. Using crackling, contemporary language and sheer artistry, Kushner creates his most joyfully theatrical play: a wildly entertaining tale of passion, regret, love, and magic.

TRAVELS WITH MY AUNT is an engaging, always entertaining journey. Eccentric Aunt Augusta swoops in and shakes up the life of her staid bourgeois nephew. She ignites the lust for adventure that is buried within his gray flannel soul.  (Think Auntie Mame!)

David Ellenstein is the Artistic Director of NCRT. Born into a theatrical family, David has worked in theatres across the country. Before joining North Coast Rep in 2003, he served as Artistic Director for the Los Angeles Repertory Company and the Arizona Jewish Theatre Company (AJTC). David has directed more than 250 theatrical productions.
