Interact Theatre Company is a collective of theatre professionals dedicated to nurturing our craft through the exploration, development and presentation of classic, contemporary, and original texts, providing a forum for educational and cultural enrichment, and creating a positive impact on audiences through the unique experience of live theatre.

“Since its inception in 1990, Interact Theatre Company has become known as one of the most exciting theatrical hamlets in the urban forest.” – F. Kathleen Foley, The Los Angeles Times

Interact Theatre Company is in-residence at The Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles, 1238 W. 1st Street, Los Angeles, CA 90026

Actors’ Equity Association Members, thank you for your support of Interact Theatre Company — we appreciate you!

Please contact Council members (email: first initial & last name

For a list of Councillors, please visit:

We urge you to support the recently passed Western Region resolution which seeks to grant ITC Membership Company status:

BE IT RESOLVED, that Equity Council accept an appeal by Interact Theatre Company, in which they may present their documentation and verbal accounts to a special jury of Western Region Councillors tasked with making a final determination on their Membership Company status.

We actually don’t care how Equity fixes this, whether it’s by “special jury,”  “blue ribbon committee,” or just by Council decree. It is high time that Equity corrected an error that was made in 2015, and once and for all, grant Interact Theatre Company the membership company status it deserves.
