Conceived by siblings, Peppur, Darnell and Shakir Chambers, Three Peas has set out to present entertainment that stems from each of their sensibilities: Music, Theater and Film.

Three Peas germinated due to the family knowing they needed their own production company to produce not only the events they created, but to nurture the talents of other artists with whom they'd come into contact over the years. Their overall goal is to produce feature films, unique live theatrical stage shows and live concerts. 

Thus far, they've produced "Lights, Camera, Action" (an artist showcase series); "Reparations" (a short film); and now "The Build UP" (a site-specific play that ends in a musical performance).

For more information, visit their website and their Facebook page

The Build UP is a theatrical piece that is part play and part musical performance. The story, to be performed by five main actors in an LA mansion/private home known as “The Castle,” is about a female filmmaker, KALIEGH who is feeling neglected both by her film career and her husband CHRISTOPHE as he tries to find himself in his new career as a music manager after being downsized. As a result, she confides in a cute plumber who happens to come for a house call. The Build UP is an intimate, yet powerful performance that will literally take place in the kitchen, the living room, the upstairs bedroom and finally the roof top where the story Builds UP to a climax that ends in Christophe’s band performing live. The audience will be up-close and personal with the actors and move from room to room. The audience will also have the opportunity to stay in one room with the actors or follow the story to another room (think: “MadLibs”!)

  1. Ok, I’ll start it off. If I could travel to one place this year, it would be to Denver in July. I’ve been there in the winter, but I really want to see what it’s like in the summer. Keep your fingers crossed that I can make it out there!!

  2. This year, I would love to go to Europe...or New York. I miss my friends there :)

  3. Cambodia! I've always wanted to see Angkor Wat!

  4. This year I'm dying to go to Japan. Cherry blossom festivals and Harajuku girl gawking - sounds perfect to me.

  5. Prague! I regrettably missed it on my last Eurotrip and it's been at the top of my list since.

  6. I would love to travel to Bora Bora. Staying in an overwater bungalow has been at the top of my list for quite a long time!

  7. I want to go back to Maui Hawaii. Enjoy the water falls and good food. Perfect place for relaxation and nature.

  8. There are many places I want travel to this year (hopefully it will be a big travel year for me). The place I'm most excited about going to is Puerto Rico - the plan is to attend an amazing women's retreat there. I think it would be super fun!
