About this organization
Now in its 34th year, About…Productions collaboratively creates and presents innovative original theaterworks with the region’s leading artists to unearth and illuminate cultural histories of the Southwest, California, and Los Angeles. We bring affordable theater to low-income, under-served communities by mining seldom-tapped regional histories, addressing relevant issues and under-represented voices.
The company also conducts an arts education program: Young Theaterworks. It serves highest-risk and educationally underserved youth in Los Angeles-area public schools with high impact, standards and project-based learning that improves academic achievement and creative engagement. Strengthening students' literacy practice, and collaboration and communication skills, the program also empowers them to become stewards of their community’s history.
