The Fountain Theatre

The Fountain Theatre
The Fountain Theatre is a non-profit producing organization established in 1990 by co-Artistic Directors Deborah Lawlor and Stephen Sachs dedicated to providing a nurturing, creative home for multi-ethnic theatre and dance artists. The Fountain offers a safe, supportive haven for artists of varied backgrounds to gather, interact and inspire each other toward the creation of work that will ignite and illuminate the community from which it's drawn and give creative voice to those who may not otherwise be heard.

Now in its 13th year, The Fountain has grown into one of the most successful of the intimate venues in the busy Los Angeles theatre world. The Fountain Theatre's activities include a year-round season of fully-produced new and established plays (23 world premieres and 17 Los Angeles premieres, each reflecting a unique cultural voice and serving a distinctive ethnic community), a full season of multi-ethnic dance, a New Plays developmental series, educational outreach programs, an HIV/AIDS acting workshop, the American Literature Theatre Project, the development of a Children's Theatre program in association with a neighborhood elementary school, the Young Playwrights Project, and off-site presentations/tours. Fountain Theatre projects have been seen in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, San Diego, Chicago, Cleveland, Texas, Vancouver and India. To date, Fountain Theatre productions have won more than 100 awards for all areas of production, performance, and design, including being the only Intimate Theatre in Los Angeles to win the prestigious Theatre LA OVATION Award for Best Production twice.
