The theater group Les Comédiens Français was organized in 1934 to promote, foster, and perpetuate French language and culture in Louisiana. After presenting more than fifty years of stage productions in French, the group became inactive and established an annual lecture series on French culture, particularly the performing arts, at The Historic New Orleans Collection.

Because the endowment for the annual lecture series does not cover all the costs associated with this event, your financial support is greatly appreciated. Should you like more information about helping to continue this important lecture series, please call The Collection’s development office at (504) 598-7109. All inquiries are held in strictest confidence and without obligation. Thank you for your support.
