Local Theater Company is an organization that we love and support. They “engage audiences through innovative performances that spark camaraderie, learning, and contemplation, and provide a resourceful environment for theater artists to take creative risks, and develop their work.

Boulder’s LOCAL Theater Company was founded in Venice by Pesha Rudnick and Megan Mathews in the 1990s. That same decade,Todd Reed started in Boulder and now has gorgeous new digs on Abbot Kinney— just blocks from where LOCAL was born!
Our dovetailing journeys aren’t our only similarities. We also share a passion for the unique beauty in our world. LOCAL fostering new voices and ideas, Todd Reed uncovering the singular elegance of raw materials.

Last month we hosted a party to celebrate Co-Lab, LOCAL’s new collaborative writing project which co-opts Smart Phones for the making of theater.
