South Pasadena Theatre Workshop is opening the play Third by Wendy Wasserstein on April 22nd which will run for five weekends. The play is being produced by Stephen Godwin and Sally Smythe who six years ago created the theatre space inside the old nursery on Mound and El Centro. Over the past five years the workshop has hosted adult workshops and acting classes as well as conservatory performance opportunities for high school students including Into the Woods and The Diviners.
