Outdoor Stage
The Fountain Theatre has received approval from the City of Los Angeles to install a temporary outdoor stage for the purpose of presenting live performances and other events during the pandemic.

“Pandemic permitting, we hope to open our first outdoor production by late spring or early summer,” says Fountain artistic director Stephen Sachs. “We’re planning an exciting Los Angeles premiere that dramatizes urgent social issues using the Fountain’s signature bold and theatrical approach.”

Installed in what is now the theater parking lot, the new performance area will be able to accommodate 50 to 84 audience members. It will feature seven rows of chairs, each six feet apart, as well as 12 high-top tables positioned six feet apart for use by patrons from the same “bubble” households. Every aspect of the outdoor performance area will meet COVID-19 safety guidelines.

According to Sachs, “The most painful aspect of the past ten months has been the separation from our patrons and the disconnection from our art form. Until our indoor theater reopens, the outdoor stage will be a thrilling performance venue and a hub for our educational and community engagement programs. The outdoor stage will be the centerpiece as we re-emerge in 2021. It galvanizes our vision moving forward.”

Fountain Year End Campaign 2021

On March 14, 2020 The Fountain Theatre closed its doors. On June 14, 2021, we re-opened outside with our exciting new Outdoor Stage. Twenty months later we are back inside again. COVID safe. Back to the uniquely intimate and communal space that IS The Fountain Theatre. We couldn’t have done it without you. For months, you sent checks large and small. You sent encouraging emails and notes. And on November 6, 2021 our doors opened again.

Thank you!

As we move past the pandemic and through urgent cultural shifts, we understand — more than ever — the important role art plays in our lives. With your steadfast support, we pledge to continue producing outstanding theatre from diverse artists and points of view. Plays that encourage important, sometimes uncomfortable, conversations. Plays that help us imagine the world through the imagination of others.

This year, An Octoroon by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, unsettled us with its shocking satire, and its unconventional mash-up of theatrical styles. The Children by Lucy Kirkwood unsettles us once again with its unflinching look at humanity’s role in climate change and its call for courage and action.

In 2022, works by diverse playwrights’ will continue to grace our indoor and outdoor stages. Uplifting us. Making us think. Fountain Voices and Walking the Beat will grow, providing transformative arts education experiences for more youth at budget-strapped LAUSD and CUSD campuses. Your continued support will ensure that these programs succeed.

"The Fountain bravely continues to bring LA audiences important contemporary works the larger theaters in town still haven’t the courage or the vision to produce.”
- Charles McNulty, LA Times,
