Legler Benbough Theatre | Scripps Ranch

a co-production between Scripps Ranch Theatre and Loud Fridge Theatre Group

On a bare stage, this magnificent storyteller spins her own exquisite real-life remembrance of her brain-damaged aunt, Neat, and the profound change she brought to Charlayne’s life. Neat, with her enormous love, energy, simplicity and magnificent clarity, teaches the young Charlayne what it means to cherish life. Talented San Diego actor/director/community leader, Kandace Crystal, stars in this production accompanied with beautiful dance by Nicole Diaz-Pellot. Directed by Claire Simba.

(Content Advisory: Neat deals with issues related to the civil rights era, police violence, and the treatment of those with cognitive impairments. A seizure is depicted on stage.)


In alignment with the State of California, which has removed mask and vaccine requirements for indoor events, effective August 2022, Scripps Ranch Theatre will not require patrons to provide proof of vaccination or to wear masks while attending shows. However, the wearing of masks is still strongly encouraged, and we ask everyone to please consider the safety of our actors and fellow community members at all times. We will make masks available at all shows, and will do our best to accommodate the switching of tickets if an audience member is feeling ill.
