Founded in 1974, L.A. Theatre Works (LATW) is a non-profit media arts organization whose mission is to present, preserve and distribute significant classic and contemporary plays through audio recordings. Originally named “Artists in Prison,” the organization used theatre as a tool for creative expression by incarcerated men and women. In 1985, LATW began producing audio recordings of plays, which can now be found in some 11,000 U.S. libraries. The group’s catalogue consists of over 400 plays by classic and notable playwrights, many recorded by famous film and TV actors. In 2012, LATW began releasing e-books and apps as well, which accompany the audio performances – which are staged locally at UCLA’s James Bridges Theatre – and allows a user to read the text of a play as they listen to the recording. The company also tours nationally.

Built in 1929 as one of the first four original structures on UCLA’s campus in Westwood, the two towers of Royce Hall are now the defining image of the school. Named for California-born philosopher Josiah Royce, the looming brick building is modeled after Milan’s San Ambrogio Church. In the many decades since its introduction, the popular events space has undergone seismic retrofitting, and now boasts some 1,800 seats, nearly all with perfect sightlines to the deep stage. The annual events calendar features a variety of fine art performances with world-class talent ranging from speakers to dance to contemporary and classical music. Entertainers use the stage to tell stories and jokes, radio personalities bring their live shows through Royce Hall, and students have the opportunity to witness never-before-seen productions throughout the year. Patrons can customize their own subscription packages, and students receive discounts to every event.
