THE NEW AMERICAN THEATRE (NAT) is a creative, artist-helmed theatre company. NAT seeks to inspire, educate and nurture artists and our community towards a thoughtful and humane world view through the art of story-telling. We help young theatre artists find their voices, cultivate social consciousness and prepare for a lasting career. We support new and established playwrights and incubate new plays. We seek to make a lasting, life-long impression on our community – inspiring the audience to continue provocative conversations long after the curtain closes.
CULTURAL EQUITY AND INCLUSION STATEMENT
The New American Theatre seeks to inspire, educate and nurture theater artists and the community around us to promote cultural equity and inclusion through our programming, policies and practices. Founded in 1986 in New York and reestablished in Los Angeles in 1995, we have grown into a theatre arts organization that is committed to the creative expression of telling stories and encouraging conversations that advance equity in gender, age, ethnicity, race, culture, sexual orientation and ability.
