Center Theatre Group

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


As one of the nation’s most influential nonprofit theatre companies, Center Theatre Group proudly continues our 50-year tradition of using the art of theatre to broaden horizons and illuminate new perspectives. At the Ahmanson Theatre, Mark Taper Forum, and Kirk Douglas Theatre, we entertain audiences with celebrated Broadway shows, thought-provoking stories, and adventurous new plays.

Over the past decade, we’ve commissioned 65 shows and produced 40 World premieres, making us one of the nation’s leading producers of ambitious new works. Our interactive programs engage audiences across generations, demographics, and circumstance. And our award-winning education programs inspire the next generation of theatregoers, artists, and artisans.

We entertain. We create. We engage. We inspire. We put theatre at the center of it all.

Center Theatre Group commits to creating a safe space where the values of diversity, equity and inclusion permeate all levels and all aspects of our work. We aim to attract, nurture and retain staff in a supportive home where we can be our best selves. Because theatre is a cultural force with the capacity to transform the lives of individuals and society at large, we have a duty to celebrate our commonalities and embrace our differences in order to ensure that everyone has access to our work onstage, behind the scenes, and in the community.
