As you may know, Conejo Players Theatre is within walking distance of Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks — just over 700 yards away …
Cast and staff of CPT’s “Guys and Dolls,” who had just finished rehearsal when the incident began, were on lockdown inside the theatre for several hours while authorities assessed the situation. (They are all safe and accounted for, and were eventually able to head home.)
We stand vigilantly with the family and friends of all those involved and affected, and our hearts are with the entire City of Thousand Oaks.
