The Road Theatre Company, a non-profit organization, was founded in 1991 to create a nurturing and creative environment for an ensemble company of actors, directors, designers, writers, and technicians dedicated to expanding their talents and fostering a sense of ensemble. The Company’s mission is to revitalize theatre in the Los Angeles area through exciting, challenging and thought-provoking productions; focus on the development and production of original and innovative material previously unseen by Los Angeles audiences; and to contribute to the community above and beyond their productions by offering benefit performances and/or volunteer service to charitable organizations. The Road Theatre Company has received several awards including the 1998 Drama Critics Circle's Margaret Harford Award for Sustained Excellence in Theatre and the 2003 Back Stage West Landmark Award for Sustained Excellence in Theatre. In addition to producing theatre, the company is the administrating organization for the Lankershim Arts Center, a community arts center that provides over 60 hours of arts programming per week at a low cost to the community. Located in the heart of the NoHo Arts District, the company has provided numerous community outreach programs forging strong links with the community and creating valuable new audiences for the theatre.
