The Syzygy Theatre Group
Syzygy's goals are to maintain a resident artistic ensemble, broaden and diversify local audiences, form an art-share relationship with an un-served American community, and produce works that continue the theatre's rich tradition, reflect on the theatre's role in a contemporary society, anticipate and embrace the theatre's future.
L.A. Writers Center
The Los Angeles Writers Center is an organization designed to germinate and foster new works by involving not only the playwright, but a team of artists: directors, dramaturges, and actors. Playwrights are thus able to hone and sharpen their plays to a degree that would make them inherently more production-ready.
New Alignments Reading Series
The Syzygy Theatre Group and The Los Angeles Writers Center joined forces to create a play reading series called New Alignments. Its purpose is to provide playwrights with the opportunity to receive feedback on works-in-progress, to provide the community with an opportunity to participate in and observe the creative process, and to provide actors and directors with an opportunity to hone their craft. All readings take place at Syzygy Theatre in Burbank, CA.
