Ceiling/Sky is a powerful musical play that explores the aftermath of the 1994 earthquake in Los Angeles. Young people in their twenties navigate racial conflict, relations with the police, the criminal justice system, the persecution of immigrants, and sexual identity. The Northridge quake, a natural catastrophic event forces inner transformations in the lives of each character in profound ways.


*We at Theater Alliance seek to make our submission process as accessible and inclusive as possible. If you have a headshot and resume to send us, that’s great. If you prefer to send a different type of media to represent your work, in lieu of a resume, we look forward to seeing it. We invite you to show us who you are as an artist, in whatever way you choose. And if you prefer to speak with someone on our staff about submitting your materials in a non-digital format, please reach out with a message to
