TOA Announces Campus Upgrade With Move to The Complex Hollywood



LOS ANGELES, CA, Tuesday June 2, 2021 — Theatre of Arts, the longest-running acting conservatory in Hollywood, today announced it will relocate its primary campus to The Complex Hollywood, the dynamic multi-theatre performing arts facility that has long served as the heartbeat of the Los Angeles alternative live theatre scene.

David Conolly, Director of Education for Theatre of Arts comments, “We could not be more thrilled to be moving to The Complex Hollywood. After over a year of teaching acting exclusively online during COVID-19, we can’t wait to welcome our students back in August at this wonderful facility. This move will deliver a big upgrade in the conservatory experience for our students, and we look forward to continuing TOA’s mission in this exciting new location, which is so beloved by generations of Los Angeles actors.”

At their new home in The Complex Hollywood at 6476 Santa Monica Boulevard, TOA students will benefit from practicing their craft daily in five well-appointed studios and one main theatre. All studios are outfitted with stage lighting for training and rehearsals, and two 50-seat theatres featuring a 400 square foot stage that’s fully rigged for professional sound, lights, and 120” projection capability.

Conolly continues, “In relocating to The Complex, Theatre of Arts will enjoy significantly more space than at our Sunset Boulevard campus. For the first time in many years, our classrooms and theatres will once again be located on the same premises, simplifying our students’ daily routines and significantly streamlining our ability to do stage productions. Additionally, this new larger location makes possible our first-ever dedicated library, teachers lounge, and increased outdoor common space for students to utilize for filming, collaborating and socializing.

Monica DiBiasio, Managing Director of The Complex Hollywood, comments on the move, “We are thrilled to be welcoming Theatre of Arts to The Complex Hollywood! COVID-19 has kept our stages dark for far too long; we’re excited for an influx of creative students eager to perform and entertain, and we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with TOA.”

Established in 1927, Theatre of Arts is a fully accredited conservatory, offering a two-year Associates Degree acting program on its Hollywood campus. TOA prepares students for successful careers in theatre, film, television and media, and has produced such legendary alumni as Clint Eastwood, Marilyn Monroe, and James Dean. Learn more today at
