Programs: Cornerstone Theater Company has three major operating programs: Community Collaborations, the Cornerstone Institute, and the Youth Community Collaboration.Community Collaborations: During a several month residency, professional artists work alongside community artists of all ages on a new play or adapted classic which celebrates the community, performed in a community venue and largely on Pay-What-You-Can admission basis. A cycle of Community Collaborations around a theme or guiding question culminates in a Bridge Show, where community participants from each show come together across community lines, and an Ensemble Show, where Ensemble and guest artists create productions which become part of the company's permanent repertory.The Cornerstone Institute: Four-week Summer Residencies and shorter two-day Intensives offer multidisciplinary professional training in community-based theater using our collaborative methodology.Youth Programming: The Youth Community Collaboration uses Cornerstone's unique methodology to involve students as actors and writers, telling the stories of their own communities on stage.

Cornerstone Theater Company is a multi-ethnic, ensemble-based theater company. We commission and produce new plays, both original works and contemporary adaptations of classics, which combine the artistry of professional and community collaborators. By making theater with and for people of many ages, cultures and levels of theatrical experience, Cornerstone builds bridges between and within diverse communities in our home city of Los Angeles and nationwide.

I am most impressed with Cornerstone Theatre Company. Cornerstone brings the power of theatre to people who have never (or rarely) been exposed to it.
