 Thanks to the generous support of the City of West Hollywood through its Arts and

Formosa Ave., West Hollywood, CA 90046. Events include four shows and a writing workshop. The full slate is called Encore! A Day of Theatre, as it features performances a sample of established audience favorites of the Los Angeles Women’s Theatre Festival.

 Here’s the schedule:

 12 Noon:  Identity as an Act of Courage: A Writing & Storytelling Workshop. Whether you’re a native or a transplant, this two-hour workshop will explore the concept of home and its impact on identity , as well as the courage it takes to be you. Conducted by Terrie Silverman at Plummer Park, 7377 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood, CA 90069.

 3 pm.: What’s Wrong With a Mouse? Vicki Dello Joio. Coming from Oakland, Vicki chronicles her journey of healing a rift with her father during his last days. He had disowned her for being queer 20 years earlier. At The Actor’s Company, 916 N. Formosa Ave., West Hollywood, CA 90046.

 4 p.m: ChocolateMatch.com  Juliette Jeffers. This storytelling piece chronicles a woman’s self-conscious journey into the uncharted world of online dating. At The Actor’s Company.

 5 pm: Oh, Yes She Did! Sandy Brown. A theatrical journey that breathes life into notable historical African American women who brought change to America. At  The Actor’s Company.

 7 pm: Oh, But Wait, There’s More. Kim Coles (Living Single, In Living Color). Directed by Scotch Ellis Loring. This zany and, at times, irreverent solo show chronicles the ebb and flow of Kim’s show biz career with titillating inside Hollywood anecdotes and personal stories from her world. Reception directly follows performance. At The Actor’s Company.

             8:30pm: Reception directly following the last show.

 It’s an exceptional day of free performing arts events with extraordinarily talented women.
