From Deaf West Theatre to the Independent Shakespeare Company, Los Angeles is home to many small theaters. To celebrate the deep pool of stage talent in L.A., Center Theatre Group is hosting its inaugural Block Party, “a new initiative focused on supporting and highlighting Los Angeles area theatres through the sharing of audiences, ideas, and resources,” according to CTG’s website.

The Group is now accepting applications from theaters in the greater Los Angeles area for the opportunity to be one of three shows given full remounts for new audiences. Each production selected will appear at the Kirk Douglas Theatre for a two-week run between April 14 and May 21, 2017. To qualify, the production must have opened between Jan. 1, 2015 and Aug. 12, 2016.

Interested candidates must complete an online application at centertheatregroup.com/blockparty. One production per theater may be submitted. Information sessions for applicants will be held July 16 and 25 at the Douglas. The deadline to apply is Aug. 12.

“With Block Party,” read a statement from the organization, “Center Theatre Group hopes to strengthen relationships within the Los Angeles community, create additional avenues for CTG to become familiar with local playwrights, actors, directors and designers, and foster relationships between CTG staff and the staff at theatre companies throughout Los Angeles.”
