Buzzworks is a company of professional artists presenting new plays and new takes on established works for people seeking a theatrical buzz.

Buzzworks Theater Company was formed in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1992. Over the following four years, BTC made great strides across the Midwest producing shows in Chicago, Mackinac Island, Michigan, and Green Lake, Wisconsin. Then in 1996, Los Angeles beckoned and BTC decided to heed the call.  Since its move to California, Buzzworks has produced over 25 plays and continues to cultivate its unique identity within the extraordinary community of theaters in Los Angeles.

we are looking to move closer towards reaching our strategic goals: our own theater, an administrative staff and a living wage for our artists and actors.

we need your help.

your donation gives writers, actors, directors and technicians a chance to share their vision. if you love the arts and want to support excellence in your community,

let us inspire you.

we promise never to pick boring, preachy, pedantic shows, or to produce good scripts in that manner. (we really promise!)


with your support, we can continue to create something “different.”

critics regularly rave about Buzzworks’ productions and we’re working on a new season that we want YOU to be a part of.

so, follow our friend, steve carrell, and open your wallets to give us some greenbacks. WE APPRECIATE IT!
