@ This Stage is a digital media platform that is centered in providing professional resources, community, and conversation to empower innovative, diverse theatre artists. We do so through our three main content areas – Work, Play, and Think. The content areas are defined as follows:
- Work: Professional development resources
- Play: Fun or humor pieces
- Think: Critical thought pieces
We believe that by holistically approaching artists, as both professionals and as people, we can best support their growth and development. We also focus on conversations around topics in theatre and the arts that are relevant and crucial to the diverse, vibrant people within the Los Angeles theatre and arts community.
LA STAGE Alliance Artist Members have access to a pool of professional development resources, a network of passionate LA Theatre Artists, and the support to grow and thrive. Our individual membership is meant to build the sustainability and success of the sector by focusing on those that create the theatre.
