Center Theatre Group is Los Angeles’ preeminent non-profit theatre company. On our three stages – the Ahmanson Theatre, the Mark Taper Forum and the Kirk Douglas Theatre – we present the highest quality and broadest range of theatre: groundbreaking new works, explosive productions of the classics and hit Broadway plays and musicals.
The same high standards that we apply to our stages extend to our education programs. Through performances for students, residencies at schools, discount tickets and educational materials, we reach each year over 20,000 young people who would not otherwise experience professional theatre.
We are proud to continue our 43-year tradition of contributing to the culture of our city and to the enrichment of the national theatre community, and we are grateful to our subscribers, donors and board whose generous support makes our work possible.
To serve the diverse audiences of Los Angeles
by producing and presenting theatre of the highest caliber,
by nurturing new artists,
by attracting new audiences,
and by developing youth outreach and arts education programs.
This mission is based on a belief that the art of theatre is a cultural force
with the capacity to transform the lives of individuals and society at large.
