West Hollywood has always been a theatrical town, with just a small handful of theatres and acting schools within its boundaries.
The City supports theatre through:
- Promotion of local theatre productions
- Connecting artists and local theatres with our Theatre Initiative/Rental Guide
- Funding of local non-profit theatre groups through our Arts Grant Program
- Hosting outdoor theatre productions through our Free Theatre in the Parks program
- Hosting staged readings at the West Hollywood Library
