HISTORY OF
THE COLONY THEATRE

The Colony Theatre Company began its distinguished history of continuous production in 1975, when it was incorporated as a non-profit organization by a group of young Los Angeles television actors eager to return to their theatre roots. It was to remain in residence at the 99-seat Studio Theatre Playhouse in the Silver Lake district of Los Angeles for the next 25 years.

 

In January of 1996, the Council awarded the building to The Colony, and allocated city funds to convert it to a state-of-the-art performance space. After four years devoted to design and construction, the company moved into its new Burbank home in 2000, becoming officially The Colony Theatre Company in Residence at Burbank Center Stage, a fully operating Equity theatre.

The spacious, yet intimate facility features stadium seating with a clear view of the thrust stage from every seat, an elegant but comfortable lobby, many restaurants within walking distance, and plenty of safe, free parking.

The Colony Theatre has evolved into a well-established, award-winning, nationally recognized theatre, renowned for the extremely high quality of its productions. It has received countless awards for excellence, and has been listed in the Encyclopedia Britannica Almanac as one of "25 Notable US Theater Companies."

The Colony continues to produce and program innovative, cutting edge shows and events appropriate for all ages, while being a launching pad for Broadway and Off- Broadway shows, as well as a performing destination for LA and Broadway's brightest stars and productions, a space for top casting directors to cast, filmmakers to shoot, and the community to engage.
