Actor, Director Named New Artistic Director For Ventura County Theater Company

He’s best known as a performer, and the son of Oscar winner Shirley Jones, and Tony winner Jack Cassidy.

But, Patrick Cassidy is now managing Ventura County’s biggest musical theater company.

Cassidy is the new Artistic Director for Thousand Oaks-based Five Star Theatricals, which was known for decades as Cabrillo Music Theatre. He replaces Will North, who left to pursue other opportunities.

Cassidy has directed and starred in theatrical productions across the country, and appeared in TV shows ranging from “CSI: Miami” to “Law & Order.”

The theater company’s next production is Disney’s “Beauty And The Beast” which will be at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza in July.

Lance Orozco has been News Director of KCLU since 2001, providing award-winning coverage of some of the biggest news events in the region, including the Thomas and Woolsey brush fires, the deadly Montecito debris flow, the Borderline Bar and Grill attack, and Ronald Reagan's funeral.
