THE BLANK THEATRE was founded in 1990. We are celebrating our 23rd year of dedication to excellence and innovation in the theatre arts.
THE LIVING ROOM SERIES
The LIVING ROOM SERIES is The Blank’s New Play Development Program. Presented nearly every Monday night from Labor Day to Memorial Day, the Living Room Series presents new plays free to the public (donations are encouraged). These are “workshop” presentations and have a small rehearsal process.
They are simply staged, presented with “book in hand” (meaning actors carry scripts), and are a wonderful opportunity for audiences and the playwright to get a sense of the plays full presence and how it might be staged in a full production.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM THE BLANK FAMILY TO YOUR FAMILY!
Thank you for supporting live theatre. It takes a remarkable person to understand that theatre is an important part of the fabric of our lives. It takes someone special to be able to get why it is vital to tell the story of our existence through a live medium. That someone is you.
Your ticket purchases, donations and time volunteered have aided us in accomplishing some great things this year. We developed and produced 32 new plays in our new play program, the Living Room Series. We selected, mentored and professionally produced 12 plays by playwrights from 10 to 19 years old. Our Young Playwrights Festival has produced 248 plays by young writers in the past 21 years.
At this year’s Ovation Awards, The Blank received The Sheri and Les Biller Family Foundation’s B.E.S.T. Award (Building Excellence in Small Theatre) with five other top theatres in Los Angeles. It was given because of the innovative ways we pursue our mission of helping artists develop their skills.
Our Mainstage and Apprentice programs continue to be unique in the nation in how they nurture and support the artists of today and tomorrow. “Peter Pan: The Boy Who Hated Mothers” ran for five months and our apprentices are training to be the next crop of professional stage managers and theatre producers.
The audience makes up the final component of live theatre. Without you it would just be rehearsal.
