The Secret Squirrel Society was formed in 2007 in San Diego, CA as a co-ed sports, social and entertainment company with a focus on bringing a diverse group together, building relationships and developing a sense of community in southern California. In the beginning we primarily specialized in co-ed, pick-up sports for adults and in less than five years the company grew to become the second largest co-ed sports group in Southern California. While we take some pride in that we are most proud of the relationships that we helped to build. We have had numerous people who found their life partners through our events, have witnessed several weddings and a few children brought into the world, and have seen countless people develop life-long friendships as a direct result of their involvement with The Secret Squirrel Society.
Our founder, John J. Pistone, has always had a passion for storytelling and wanted to shift our focus from adult sports to producing live events and theatre projects. His love for the craft of storytelling, combined with the amazing stories he heard through from the men and women who participated in our games compelled him to relinquish the sports side side of the business so we could focus on the entertainment side of the business.
We, The Secret Squirrel Society Entertainment Group, are a passionately driven collective of writers, producers, directors, performers, and artists all dedicated to telling great stories. We take the craft of storytelling very seriously and having fun while doing just as seriously. We believe that the story always comes first and that nothing is as important as telling it effectively.
We are different, by design, in that we are not simply a production company with employees. Rather we are a society of skilled artisans who have come together to bring dreams, stories and ideas to life on the stage or screen. We work together to educate, entertain and most of all inspire our audiences.
Our motto is; “We exist to tell great stories” and whether it be in feature films, television, live theatre and events, documentaries, web series or short films we are always looking for new stories to tell and new partners to help us tell them.
