  • ITC “2016 – 2018 IN REVIEW” video:


Do you own plays at home that are just gathering dust? Donate them to the Amelia Earhart Regional Library!
In March 2019, Los Angeles lost a vital resource when the 70-year-old Samuel French Film & Theatre Bookshop permanently closed its doors. To fill the void, Interact Theatre Company is launching an ambitious campaign to help the Amelia Earhart Regional Library dramatically increase its inventory of plays. If you have plays or play compilations at home that you would like to donate to the library, please bring them with you to our readings. Together we will create a new go-to resource that will benefit our entire community for many decades to come!
This program is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.


We are grateful to The Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles for their support. When the pandemic is over we will resume our in-person member-sponsored Monday Night Play Readings and Play Development Lab at SCLA.

Our play readings happen every Monday evening at 7:30 p.m. and consist of classic, contemporary, and original plays and screenplays, performed by company members and guest actors. During the pandemic, all readings and workshops will take place via Zoom. To be included on our guest list, please email

All ITC events are free or low cost and open to the public. Our schedule is subject to change, so please check the calendar tab at the top of this page regularly.
