International City Theatre is a professional, award-winning, non-profit theatre committed to bringing the Southern California community affordable, quality, professional theatre that will be entertaining, intellectually stimulating and emotionally satisfying, and to continuing our growth as a major regional theatre in the United States.
Community support for ICT is exemplified by the strength of our Board of Directors, comprised of business and community leaders. ICT relies on ticket sales and donations from individuals, corporations, foundations and the government for support. One of our goals has been to increase earned income and the past few years have shown continuing increases in single ticket sales. ICT has a history of fiscal responsibility and continues to run in the black.
Our productions and programs reach more than 75,000 people a year. We also work closely with groups such as the City's Black Manager's Association, Latino and Asian organizations and the NAACP, collaborating to assist them in raising money for scholarships while introducing new faces to the theatre. LA County Supervisor Don Knabe has said that ICT "is a cultural treasure."
