The 2013 summer season marks the 20th anniversary of the Partnership Program, which nurtures locally-based artists, arts organizations and community, celebrating and reflecting on stage the diversity of the people of Los Angeles County.
Former L.A. County Supervisor Ed Edelman supported the creation of the first summer season, named "Summer Nights at the Ford," in 1993. The program was designed to enable Los Angeles County-area music, dance and theatre groups to produce successfully in a major venue, providing production and marketing support and often facilitating their first important public appearances.
