Los Angeles Theatre Center

The Los Angeles Theatre Center provides education and performances for the community. Their mission includes providing a laboratory where artists can hone their skills and to provide a place where " people, cultures, and ideas contribute to the future." The theatre center is operated by the Latino Theatre Company (LATC). The theatre offers education programs for under-served children between the ages of 14 and 18 through their Summer Conservatory Program. The program was developed by the LATC Artistic Director and a professor from UCLA. It offers creative theatre arts opportunities in a four week program that combines acting classes, voice, speech, and movement training, writing, and improvisation. The program ends with a performance written and performed by program participants. For younger children, the From the Page to the State Program is an opportunity to improve reading skills and apply those skills to performance. Kids age kindergarten through fifth grade participate in the program, which brings theatre to the classroom. This is also a great way for teachers to learn ways to make reading and learning more fun for kids. Space is often rented to area art groups and organizations for rehearsals, performances, and a variety of cultural events. In 2008, nearly 40,000 people visited the Los Angeles Theatre Center for a variety of events.
