1:00 PM Stage: Native Voices At The Autry La Jolla Playhouse is pleased to announce Native Voices at the Autry is returning for its second year as resident theatre company through the 2017/2018 season. Spearheaded by Playhouse Artistic Director Christopher Ashley, the Resident Theatre Program aims to encourage the artistic development of rising performing arts organizations, while advancing and contributing to the San Diego and Southern California theatre scene as a whole.

The Resident Theatre Program is an annual appointment at La Jolla Playhouse. Previous resident theatre companies have included Mo'olelo Performing Arts Company, MOXIE Theater, San Diego Asian American Repertory Theater, Eveoke Dance Theatre, Teatro Máscara Mágica and Circle Circle dot dot.

Native Voices at the Autry is the only Equity theatre company devoted exclusively to developing and producing new works for the stage by Native American, Alaska Native and First Nations playwrights. Founded in 1994 by Producing Artistic Director Randy Reinholz (Choctaw) and Producing Executive Director Jean Bruce Scott, Native Voices became the resident theatre company at the Autry in 1999.

The company provides a supportive, collaborative setting for Native theatre artists from across North America. In 2014 the company established the Native Voices Artists Ensemble to more fully take advantage of the extraordinary talents of its Native actors, writers, musicians, and directors.

The Ensemble is devoted to developing new work in a collaborative process as well as supporting Native Voices' ongoing focus on the work of individual playwrights. Native Voices at the Autry is a member of Actors' Equity Association, LA Stage Alliance and the Dramatists Guild and is a Constituent Theatre of Theatre Communications Group (TCG), the national organization for the American theatre. Visit the Autry Museum website for more information.
