Over the past 25 years, thousands of artists have advanced the evolution of their work at The Actors Center, fueled by an immense generosity of shared wisdom passed down from generation to generation.

As we celebrate this anniversary milestone, we invite you to join us in honoring the commonwealth of artists, teachers, and supporters who have contributed to advancing the artistic development of actors over the past quarter century. With your support, we can carry The Actors Center forward into its next era—deepening our commitment to the resounding purpose that inspired our founding: to build a lifelong artistic home for actors.

The Anniversary Campaign


At the foundation of our work is the belief that actors have a profound role to play in sustaining a thriving, equitable, and culturally prosperous society, and that respecting an actor’s artistic contributions necessitates valuing their creative process and investing in their long-term development.

The cornerstone of The Actors Center is our resident artist company—a one-of-a-kind, ongoing, creative residency program for a diverse collective of 250 actors, teachers, and theater artists.

With your support, we can continue providing actors with extraordinary creative opportunities designed to advance their artistic development, spark innovation, and cultivate transcendent works of art on stage, on screen, and in communities throughout the United States.
