Founded in 1959 by a group of television and film actors that included Richard Chamberlain, Leonard Nimoy, and Vic Morrow. Company of Angels is the oldest equity waiver theatre group in the United States.

Since 1959 the philosiphy behind the first company has not changed. It’s goal is to do the best theatre possible, minimizing commercial concerns. To give actors an opportunity to practice their craft, without constraints of making money, to focus on the art itself.

In 2005 the company began to plan for its 50th Anniversary by re-assessing its history and planning for its future. This process resulted in a new mission statement that committed the Company to reflect the City of its birth through the art of theater. 

Since 1959 Company of Angels productions garnered over thirty Los Angeles Drama-Logue Awards including a special award for Continued Excellence, nine Back Stage West Garland Awards, eight Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Awards (three nominations) including a special award for Distinguished Achievement, six LA Weekly Theatre Awards (three nominations), six NAACP Theatre Awards (four nominations), eleven LA Stage Alliance Ovation Awards & five Dimension Robby Awards nominations.

Company of Angels is dedicated to creating theatre that is deeply connected to its community. We share and help give a voice to the many stories that exist in said community. Through a collective of Actors, Directors, Playwrights, Designers, and Administrators, our company forges ongoing and meaningful relationships with the residents of Los Angeles. Company of Angels’ artists embrace the responsibility to face the darkness, tell the truth, and bring forth to light. We take action by raising our voices and demand justice for George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor. We say their names, sadly holding a long list of others in our hearts, to continually educate ourselves on how to confront problematic racial patterns in our own lives and work. We stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, and send love to our Los Angeles community.
