LifeHouse Theater will hold its 20th anniversary season celebration at 7 p.m. Sunday at Trinity Evangelical Free Church, 1551 Reservoir Road, Redlands.

The celebration will include announcement of the 2013-14 season, live entertainment, media presentation, announcement of the LifeHouse Scholarship Award, season pass opportunity drawing, hors d'oeuvres and desserts and a surprise announcement.

LifeHouse Theater began in 1993 at the Arrowhead Springs Bowl in San Bernardino with fewer than 20 actors and crew. LifeHouse is now a theatrical company with more than 500 volunteer actors, playing to an audience of more than 30,000 each year.

In 1994, LifeHouse Theater remodeled its storage and rehearsal space on New Jersey Street in Redlands into an 80-seat theater. LifeHouse continued at the New Jersey Street theater until 1999, when the Redlands Christian Reformed Church building at 1135 N. Church St. became available. LifeHouse renovated the church building into a theater with 215 stadium seats.

LifeHouse Productions is a faith-based theater guided by Judeo- Christian perspectives and values, founded by Wayne R. Scott, who serves as president. Scott is also producing and directing "The Sound of Music" this summer as part of the Redlands Bowl Summer Music Festival.

In addition to producing plays at LifeHouse Theater, LifeHouse produces audio dramas called LifeHouse Theater-on-the-Air.

LifeHouse also offers LifeTales, a musical biography series for school students including curriculum guides available to teachers.

LifeHouse recently formed a partnership with YouthHope, providing seats to young people involved with YouthHope at Friday evening performances.

"I'd like to extend a warm welcome to anyone who would like to join us for a fun ceelbration of our 20 years as a theater company," Scott said.
