This is the very short and long of it...
Will & Company is a not-for-profit (501[c]3) theatre ensemble based in Los Angeles and touring the nation. Founded by Artistic Director Colin Cox in 1988, Will & Company began primarily as a troupe dedicated to making Shakespeare accessible to under-respresented communities. Over the years, our work has extended to include contemporary works which blend educational and historical material with entertainment. Based in the most multicultural city of Los Angeles, our casting choices are not "color blind", but rather "color-full", creating an artistic utopia whereby the best actor for each part is cast regardless of ethnicity, gender or ability. We are believers in art for social change and choose work that can facilitate this goal.
At present, we have three major divisions: National Tours, Education & Mainstage. National Tours is comprised of self-contained productions that are available for bookings anywhere in the country. The Education Division offers workshops and adaptations of classical works as well as environmental and social issue presentations. On our Mainstage at the RMT, we present full length productions open to the general public.
