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 repertory theater in Los Angeles. The Company spent its early years producing the classics of American theatre as well as presenting new work and received almost every Los Angeles theatrical award, including the LA Drama Critics’ Circle Award, the Drama-Logue Award, the LA Weekly Award, and the Ovation Award.

 

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 that time the Company has produced eight seasons of original theater by under-represented artists who reflect the communities that make up the City of Los Angeles. In addition, the Company engages non-theater artists from low-income communities including Boyle Heights, Skid Row community to develop original theater pieces for performances on our main stage.

Since 1959 Company of Angels productions have garnered thirty Los Angeles Drama-Logue Awards, nine Back Stage West Garland Awards, five Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Awards (three nominations), two LA Weekly Theatre Awards (three nominations), two NAACP Theatre Award (one nomination), eleven LA Stage Alliance Ovation Awards & five Dimension Robby Awards nominations.
