The Porters of Hellsgate Theatre Co. is a Los Angeles-based classical theatre company that was founded in 2006 by Edward Castuera, Jack Leahy and Charles Pasternak. [1] It is a member organization of the LA Stage Alliance. [2] The Porters are working their way through the works of Shakespeare, with the goal of becoming the first theatre company in the city of Los Angeles to perform the entire Shakespearean canon. In addition to classical pieces, the company also occasionally takes on new works, often written or translated by company members.

The current board of directors consists of Charles Pasternak (Artistic Director), Thomas Bigley (Associate Artistic Director), Gus Krieger (Associate Artistic Director; Head of New Works), Nick Neidorf (Managing Director; Sound Designer & Composer), and Alex Parker (Managing Director). [3]
