History

GHOST RANCH PRODUCTIONS was formed in 2001 for the first production of ALFRED STIEGLITZ LOVES O’KEEFFE, a passionate two-person play about the famed American artist Georgia O’Keeffe and her husband, the father of modern photography, Alfred Stieglitz. After a successful critical and commercial run at The Fremont Centre Theatre in South Pasadena, California, GHOST RANCH PRODUCTIONS remounted the show at The Castle Green in Pasadena, at renowned painter Steve Houston’s art studio, Pixar Animation Studios, in Emeryville, California and most recently at the historic Maybeck Chick Mansion in Oakland. Future ventures include a Bay Area run of the play, with an extended tour of various cities across the country. Ghost Ranch also plans to produce original plays, while also focusing on developing them into films. A feature length film is currently in pre-production.
