Artist Profile

The Shakespeare Festival of Los Angeles (SFLA), founded in 1984 by Ben Donenberg, is a performance group committed to producing professional, award-winning theater.  The evolving programs offered by SFLA demonstrate a unique, effective, and artful response to the pressing need for community development.  Currently, SFLA offers a youth employment program that hires young people challenged by severe economic circumstances to create and perform an adaptation of a Shakespeare play.  The Festival’s programs have a positive impact on the artistic, academic, and economic health of communities in southern California.
