The Rubicon Theatre Company has established itself as a major cultural force in Ventura County and beyond. Respected by audiences and critics alike, the Rubicon stages a rich array of theatrical events throughout the year, from one-person shows to classic and contemporary comedies and dramas to well-loved musicals. The productions are notable for their superb production values and stellar performances. The driving force for the Rubicon is its founders – Karyl Lynn Burns and James O’Neil, often referred to as The Dynamic Duo. Their goal is “to present innovative professional productions of plays and musicals that provoke thought; that educate, entertain and enlighten.” They succeed in that goal. Both Karyl Lynn and Jim are consummate professionals, whether onstage as actors or offstage in roles as producers and directors. Articulate and charming, they are perfectly cast to play a leading role in the cultural life of our community.
