spring musical news:
the show is almost ready!
For the first time in the history of the Hannon Theatre, company members are collaborating on creating an original musical for our annual spring production. The show centers on tales of significant turning points in our storytellers' lives. And for a little extra fun, we've found the perfect song to pair with each narrative to advance their true stories forward!
Students chose the title Mistakes Well Made to reflect their common theme -- how learning things the hard way can build resiliency and self-esteem. Our one-of-a-kind musical promises to be a truly fun production showcasing the boundless creativity of thirteen incredible young performers.
now in post-production!
release dates to be announced soon!
This year's Fall Play will be presented in a series of six nightly webisodes. Watch a webisode each night, or binge the whole series on Closing Night!
HTC has adapted the classic 19th-Century Russian farce, The Government Inspector for a modern audience! And we're going to tell it in a modern way! Join us as the hilariously corrupt town of Kompostka comes alive in a recorded performance. Filmed on a streaming platform in twenty different locations and edited by crew members all over the greater Los Angeles area, every company member shines in this slapstick, pun-riddled, ridiculous story with timely overtones. You won't want to miss out on all the fun!

our mission statement
On its expansive stage, the Hannon Theatre Company welcomes young artists from all over Los Angeles to collaborate on productions renowned for their professionalism and innovation. In its seats, audience members witness creativity they rank with the best theatre companies in Southern California. But first and foremost, in its rehearsal halls and technical shops, our members grow personally, academically, and spiritually due to a shared sense of mission. Our students and teachers commit themselves to working together, bringing theatre to life which resonates with meaning and purpose.
our equity and inclusion statement
Whereas HTC’s philosophies have been published for years in our in-house handbook given to prospective members and their parents, we are moved to share it on our website’s landing page for full transparency. We do so in an effort to keep us accountable and to provide inspiration through proclaiming our commitment to grow stronger and do better.
The Hannon Theatre Company believes whole-heartedly in a fully-inclusive casting and membership policy. HTC’s producers, directors, and casting committee cast productions in such a manner that a performer's racial or ethnic background does not limit the roles they can be assigned nor do such matters diminish the learning opportunities available to them. We espouse a color-conscious policy in which we recognize the beautiful complexity and intersectionality of student identities. In our selected literature, we choose to celebrate diversity without making any member’s personal identifiers a plot point in our stories. Our paramount objective is to honor every student’s cultural, racial, and gender identity through work which celebrates God’s unconditional love and creative spirit.
