In July 1991 a group of dedicated theatre artists and administrators came together to form The Other Side of the Hill Productions, Inc. a.k.a. The Road Theatre Company.

A non-profit corporation that produces theatre under the Actors’ Equity Association 99-Seat Plan. The Road Theatre Company has enjoyed an amazing 25-year history, having been honored with:

  • 5 Stage Raw Recommended/Top 10 Productions
  • 9 Los Angeles Drama Critics’ Circle Awards
  • 15 Los Angeles Stage Alliance Ovation Awards
  • 11 L.A. Weekly Awards
  • 39 Back Stage West Garland Critics Citations Awards
  • 6 Robby Awards
  • 67 Valley Theatre League Artistic Director Achievement Awards
  • 17 “Critic’s Choice” – Los Angeles Times
  • 24 “Pick of the Week/Recommended/Go” – L.A. Weekly
  • 19 “Critic’s Pick” – Back Stage West

Additionally, the company received the 2003 Back Stage West Landmark Award for Sustained Excellence in Theatre and the prestigious 1998 Los Angeles Drama Critics’ Circle Margaret Harford Award for Sustained Excellence in Theatre.

The Road Theatre Company is committed to the most meaningful and dangerous of theatre missions – new work for the stage. Its accomplishment of artistic excellence combined with outstanding production value prompted the L.A. Weekly in 2010 to proclaim The Road Theatre Company “One of the best theatres of the Decade” and the NoHo News to describe the company as “one of the finest venues for the newest and best American dramas.” The Road’s commitment to producing and developing new work has led to numerous plays being published and developed into film projects, including:

  • “West of Redemption”
  • “The Chisholm Trail Went Through Here”
  • “Vig”
  • “My Last Confession”
  • “In the Name of the People”
  • “Visas and Virtue” (winner of the 1998 Academy Award for Best Live Action Short)

The Road Theatre is committed to community service and educational outreach and for 20 years has been designated the resident company of the Historic Lankershim Arts Center by the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs. LAC provides over 60 hours of arts programming per week at little or no cost to the community, including programs dedicated to visual art, dance, writing, music and live theatre. Located in the heart of the NoHo Arts District, the company has provided numerous outreach programs forging strong links to the community.

In 2009, the company was selected by META Corporation to serve as resident theatre company of a new state-of-the-art 76-seat venue, “The Road on Magnolia,” located within the NoHo Senior Arts Colony. Road company members volunteer as teachers and work with residents who wish to participate in productions. Meanwhile, the theatre serves as a second stage for The Road, allowing it to serve a wider audience.
