2018/19 has been a landmark season for Antaeus Theatre Company! As we approach the end of our fiscal year on August 31, we ask you to consider making a gift to help us continue our important work.
Everything we do is made possible by the generosity of our community. Here are a just few highlights of what we’ve accomplished together over the last year:
- AWARDS Antaeus received the most wins of any theater in this year’s LA Drama Critic’s Circle Awards, with three productions claiming a total of seven honors! The Little Foxes won for Best Ensemble, Featured Performance, Set Design, and Revival. Native Son won for Lighting and Sound Design, and Three Days in the Country won for Writing Adaptation.
ON STAGE This year we expanded our season to include a full calendar of four ambitious productions: The Little Foxes, The Cripple of Inishmaan, Diana of Dobson’s, and (now playing) Bertolt Brecht’s The Caucasian Chalk Circle. We were also honored that Center Theatre Group mounted an encore of our 2017/18 production, Native Son, as part of their annual Block Party, celebrating the best in local theater.
BLACK BOX We inaugurated our secondary performance space this season with two new projects: Classic Sundays, a monthly play reading series; and LAB RESULTS, a festival of six new plays developed in the Antaeus Playwrights Lab.
EDUCATION & TRAINING Antaeus is more than the award-winning work on our stage: The Academy offers unique, specialized training to professional actors throughout their careers; our Playwrights Lab works with prominent local writers to help cultivate the next generation of classic theater; The Antaeus Project provides a forum for in-depth study of the language, themes, and history of selected classical works and playwrights; and Teaching Artists in our Arts Education program share our love of theater with the wider community through regular visits to four partner sites.
Antaeus is unique in the landscape of Los Angeles theater, and your support helps us create programming you won’t find anywhere else. Invest in a bright future for Antaeus by making a gift today!
