Creates original theatre for The People. 

Our special focus is underserved communities.

We find out the stories in prisons, juvenile delinquent centers, runaway shelters,

women shelters, homeless, drug & addiction centers and give these stories a voice. 

Any contribution you make will go towards producing

New Plays in the future.

We want to get to know you!

Please feel free to contact us

We are so grateful for your interest!

Excerpt from L.A. Sheriff's Department letter on our recent performance of "Language of the Heart" to 150 high risk inmates at Lynwood Women's Prison:

“Language of the Heart” was an inspirational comedic play with a positive message of learning to have hope despite suffering disappointments and setbacks. Following the performance, cast members answered questions and interacted with inmates in a discussion about the meaning of the performance...Many inmates not only enjoyed the performance, but were deeply moved.

I want to thank you for taking the time to bring your talents into our facility....I, and my staff are proud to consider Citizen Change Theatre a Community Partner and we, as well as our inmates, welcome a return visit.

Thank you again! Your dedication to your craft and desire to bring the arts to undeserved populations is an inspiration!"
