Is it Rapunzel's castle? Not quite... but any number of wondrous other tales are told behind this beautiful window. It's part of the Fremont Centre Theatre, specializing in plays that are "original, unique, and obscure --with a few old favorites from time to time." The husband and wife team of James Reynolds and Lissa Layng Reynolds opened the Fremont in 1997, utilizing their extensive theater and business experience. But they're not just bringing great dramatic productions to the San Gabriel Valley. (Valley Magazine named the Fremont as Best Equity Waiver Theater.)When they're not lifting up the curtain, they're lifting up the local community. As volunteers and fundraisers they have contributed to local women's shelters, the South Pas police department, the Pasadena Humane Society, and Foothill YMCA. They have also directed local elementary school productions of Shakespeare -- for which they each received Distinguished Service Award from the local PTSA. Who needs a fairy godmother with helpful neighbors like these?
