General Information

The Ford Theatres Partnership Program, running from May through October, supports Los Angeles County resident arts organizations by assisting them to successfully present performances in its 1,200-seat amphitheatre.  It seeks to develop new audiences for the partner arts organizations, John Anson Ford Theatres, and the larger Los Angeles County performing arts community.  The Arts Commission provides significant presentation support (please see application guidelines) to participating arts organizations which, in turn, provide the residents of Los Angeles County with a rich cultural sampling of performing arts of the region.

Under the Ford Amphitheatre Summer Partnership Program, the Arts Commission is interested in receiving proposals for:

• Performing Arts Performances: These are typically two-hour (or longer) evening events that are geared for adults or families with older children. Work may be in any performing arts discipline.

• Film Events: As the Ford is equipped with 35mm projectors and a full size movie screen, proposals for film screening events are also sought and will receive full consideration.

Similar to a grant program, proposals for the Ford’s Summer Partnership program are considered on a competitive basis. Those projects accepted receive significant presentation support and assistance toward realization of the proposed project.

Application Workshops

Ford Theatre staff will host two workshops to review the application process, discuss eligibility and requirements of applying arts organizations, and answer questions about the partnership program and producing at the Ford. Applicants are strongly encouraged to attend. These workshops will be held at the Ford Theatre at 2580 Cahuenga Blvd. East in Hollywood on the following dates and times:

July - TBA

Parking for these workshops is free. If your organization plans to attend a workshop, please RSVP with your name, organization, email address and phone number to or call (323) 856-5793.
