Mango Propductions was formed in 1999 as a means to produce the theatre/rock show, WOVEN. The founding members of Mango Productions were Noah Harpster, Jason Burnstein and Jon Lichtenstein. They were later joined by Keith Baker and Brian Dickerson. After it's inception it went on to produce numerous other events including a five week long theatre and music festival in Santa Barbara, Califorina called Mango Fest. Woven headlined the event with five weeks of sold out shows. There were also original works by seven different theatre companies featuring world class juggler Jay Gilligan, local theater artists, and innovative out of town acts from Los Angeles, Houston and MInneapolis. Music events includied an all day outdoor concert with local bands, and an evening with The Yonder Mountain String Band, a popular blue grass band from Colorado.
The company dissolved in 2002. A sad but necesary stage of development for all the original memebers. Basically, it was time to move on....which we all did.
