& Community

As a non-profit organization, the Geffen Playhouse has a deep commitment to sharing outstanding theater with everyone. Our entire city benefits from thought-provoking and inspiring performances, regardless of age, gender, or the ability to purchase tickets.

The Geffen Playhouse’s education and community programs provide long-term, in-depth access to current and next generation theatergoers and instill a love for theater that will last a lifetime. Learning experiences and theater-making opportunities are designed to deepen program participants’ meaningful connections to the plays they attend, their sense of agency as thinkers and communicators, and their sense of community — with each other, the Geffen Playhouse, and Los Angeles.

CORE BELIEFS

  • Theater arts opens doors to creative exploration and personal discoveries and should be experienced and shared with as many people as possible.
  • Theater is a one-of-a-kind tool for learning, connecting, and profoundly enriching the lives of people of all ages.
  • Theater arts can ignite positive change within schools and communities.
  • Theater creates educational transformations for students both inside and outside of the classroom.
  • Access to well-designed theater arts experiences can develop life-long appreciation and advocacy for theater in schools, organizations, and communities.
