Now recognized as one of the leading companies in the Los Angeles theatre community, the Interact Theatre Company was founded by actor Barry Heins as an official not-for-profit corporation in 1992. Its first full company production was Dylan Thomas's "Under Milk Wood" in 1993, and the group has since received 78 awards and 150 nominations for Outstanding and/or Distinguished Achievement in Theatre.
The Interact Theatre Company is made up of theatre professionals who are committed to bringing affordable, culturally enriching, educational theater to the local community of North Hollywood and the greater Los Angeles area. Toward this end, regular play readings are conducted, featuring classical theatrical masterpieces, new plays on or off-Broadway, screenplays, world premieres and more.
Each season a full line-up of staged plays are performed, too. A recent example is the Pulitzer Prize winning satire, "State of the Union," by Russell Crouse and Howard Lindsay. Traditional favorites, such as "Death of a Salesman," are often scheduled, and occasional galas/benefits are held to raise funds that support the company's work.
Unless otherwise noted, all productions of the Interact Theatre Company are at the NoHo Arts Center in the heart of the NoHo Arts District. The address is 11136 Magnolia Boulevard, North Hollywood, California 91601.
