The Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles enriches and nurtures personal growth, professional development and social change through engaging and accessible arts experiences inspired by Shakespeare’s plays and poetry, with a special focus on empowering under-served youth and veterans.
Founded in 1986 by Ben Donenberg, The Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles is driven by an underlying impulse that equates the creation of professional, award-winning theatre with the performance of tangible human services. Our evolving programs reflect this impulse as they demonstrate, in form and content, a unique, effective and artful response to the pressing need for community development.
SCLA is an integral part of the Los Angeles cultural landscape. From a youth employment program (Will Power to Youth) that hires young people challenged by severe economic circumstances to create and perform an adaptation of a Shakespeare play; to innovative curricula that provide teachers new ways to bring the words of Shakespeare to their classrooms; to the critically acclaimed professional performances of Shakespeare's plays; and our veteran employment programs, the festival's programs have a positive impact on the artistic, academic and economic health of communities in the Southern California region.
