the transformative power of live theater

Our Donors

Everything we do at Antaeus is made possible by the generosity of our community. We are profoundly grateful to these individuals and institutions for their inspiring support.

Antaeus is a unique community — a company of dedicated artists illuminating the human experience through performance, training and outreach, rooted in values of creative freedom and artistic excellence. From the extraordinary performances on our stage, to the specialized training offered in our Academy, the exciting new work developed in our Playwrights Lab, and the inspiration our teaching artists share with the community through Arts Education partnerships, none of this would be possible without the generous support of our donors.
If you have questions, or if you’d like to make a pledge, arrange a recurring gift, or inform us about a planned gift, contact Producing Executive Director, Ana Rose O’Halloran, at
anarose@antaeus.org or 818.506.5436.
