Are there play workshops in Los Angeles area?

    Would like to find somewhere in Los Angeles where I can develop my play (been produced at middle schools and drama camps) through a workshop to improve the chances of it getting produced. I'm finding it hard to market now because so many Broadway Jr. shows are available and schools don't like producing shows they've never heard of. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

    Would a workshop like this be helpful? https://www.echotheatercompany.com/playwrights-studio/

    Another option, and something that my collaborator and I did with our show a couple times as we were developing it, was to find a director and cast (largely made up of friends, acquaintances, and friends-of-friends) and do a series of workshop-type rehearsals leading up to a staged reading in a rehearsal studio with an invited audience of friends and industry contacts.
