ANW’s award-winning resident company practices a rotating repertory model at their state-of-the-art, 324-seat performing space.

We acknowledge the traditional caretakers of the land—we are on the traditional lands of the Gabrielino-Tongva people, who some identify as Kizh. We also want to recognize their neighbors in the region, the Tataviam and Chumash people, who are also important cultural leaders in the region with the Gabrielino-Tongva people.
