Tomorrow's Theatre Today - Committed to telling relevant and more inclusive stories that expand the boundaries of mainstream theater, the Skylight Theatre Company discovers, develops and produces new works, introduces plays new to Los Angeles, and educates and nurtures the artists that create them.

A vibrant expanding family of artists with a passion for telling original stories that speak to today's audience, our goal is to further establish Los Angeles as a center of innovation in American Theater and to develop an enthusiastic local theater-going community.

Skylight's programs include an active resident writer's lab, PLAYLab, where writers create a new play from scratch each year. Led by Shem Bitterman, PLAYLab members have access to all Skylight facilities, mentor another writer in the programm and participate in the annual LAb WORKS Festival; INKubator Play Reading Series - monthly staged readings of works that have reached the point where an audience is required to move the play forward. Works are accepted through general submission and recommendation. There are no subject limitations or age restrictions; unAUTHORized play writing workshop for ages 18-28; SOLOMojo, solo performance workshop; Underground, a unique mentoring program for young adult performers and directors and, The Lyric Project community outreach program where teens in detention centers and Title 1 high schools are introduced to writing through lyric writing workshops. Approximately 15-20 student-lyricists are paired with professional songwriters to create new songs which are performed in an annual concert. The program is funded in part by the ASCAP Foundation.
