Our mission is to give back to our community by providing affordable and accessible art in Los Angeles. We want to create a safe and creative space for our community. We are also passionate about giving back to organizations in our community. In our four years as as theater company we have raised hundreds of dollars (with the help of our audience) for these amazing organizations:
Child's Play Charity
Philando Castile Scholarship
Downtown Women's Center
Heart of Los Angeles
Peace Over Violence
National Eating Disorder Association
Los Angeles Action Bail Fund
Minnesota Freedom Fund
TGI Justice Project
Trans Women of Color Collective
Riley Billingsley and Liz Kummer met at Columbia College in Chicago. They experienced solo performance and both took a liking to it. Being thrown into such a vulnerable state on stage was incredibly freeing. "It's Personal" is a performance group in L.A. sharing some of the best, funniest, scariest, truthful moments on stage. They are excited to bring a group of people together to laugh, cry, and most importantly relate. What's your story?
Who We Are
It's Personal is a collection of solo performance pieces written and performed by our rotating cast. At our rehearsals, each performer brings pieces that reflect their feelings and point of view; whether it be their relationship with their parents, their devoted love of cheese, their struggle with their identity, or their first love.
It's Personal has grown into so much more than a live storytelling show. We have expanded to include a podcast, a blog, a playwriting series, and so many more things to come!
