People like you helped us achieve a lot of amazing things this year.

Whether through your attendance at our theater or through your tax deductible donations, your support has helped transform lives in our public schools and prisons and has had a tangible effect on the safety and health of our society. We’ve also been able to produce some kick ass theater both here in Los Angeles and throughout the world.

Take a look at what all of that support has led to. We hope all of our achievements throughout this past year will make you consider supporting us again in our work for the coming year through a tax deductible donation.

8,440 people have joined us in our home, The Actors’ Gang Theater, to laugh together, to cry together, and to raise questions that should be raised as we try to shine a light on things that matter to all of us. We were able to create that through the amazing work of our actors and directors, but also through visiting artists whom we are honored to have the opportunity to present.

12,642 theatre lovers around the world were able to hear our voice, which we like to believe is a representation of our culture’s voice and of your voice as well. Through raw, uncompromising theater, we ripped to pieces language and cultural barriers and spread some joy and hope to our foreign neighbors.

1,859 elementary, middle and high school students, young people coming from at-risk and disadvantaged communities, who otherwise may not have been given the opportunity to experience theater, or any art for that matter, discovered theater and its empowering effect.

255 incarcerated students in California State Prison and Juvenile programs have been given tools to express their fears, trade anger for empathy and, ultimately, create bonds with others across racial and gang barriers. These men, women and children join the 530 students who have participated in The Prison Project in the last ten years. Their work with The Actors’ Gang has created transformations that have led to an 89% reduction in prison infractions and a 1 0 % recidivism rate. Another 320 incarcerated men and women attended presentations in support of our students.

105 Re-Entry Program students joined our program and benefited of the the kind of leg up that is needed as one faces the challenges of re-entering society after years of incarceration. Another 223 Re-Entry participants were there to support them
