YOUR ANNUAL GIFT IS VALUED AND APPRECIATED

You are Invited to Play a Starring Role at The Laguna Playhouse

For over 90 years, generous donors have contributed annually to sustain the Laguna Playhouse.  Our annual donors make it possible to create the live presentation productions, maintain the operations and facilities, support the education programming and staffing — and fund the marketing for the iconic institution.  Without the continuity of its annual support, the Laguna Playhouse would not be able to boast its heritage as the longest-operating theatre west of the Mississippi.

Bringing Theatre Arts to Young People

Our nationally-recognized Youth Theatre provides an array of theater experiences to young audiences, including fully-staged productions of well-known popular books and stories geared for family audiences.

Theatre for a New Generation offers vivid stage dramas about the challenges faced by teens that are intended to both entertain and stimulate discussion among young people, parents and educators.

TheatreReach: Bringing Books to LIfe is an award-winning in-school program that brings professionally staged productions into schools throughout Southern California every year. Engaging and interactive, these plays are one-hour adaptations of popular children’s books approved by California Dept. of Education for K-6 literature and history curriculum.  While thousands of elementary school children enjoy these performances, dozens of schools remain on waiting lists, unable to participate due to lack of funding.

Our Conservatory and Repertory program is unique in the region for its approach to theatre education for young people. Taught by working theatre professionals, the Conservatory offers talented adolescents a small-enrollment, high-level program of instruction in acting, production stage crafts and drama. The Laguna Playhouse also offers a variety of theatre classes for children and teens ages six and up. No gift is too small!

If you are not already one of our ongoing supporters, we hope you will join us today.  Any level of support is appreciated.Memberships run for one year and renewal notices are sent annually in advance of the anniversary membership date each year.

The Laguna Playhouse works hard to keep its productions accessible to the broadest audience possible by keeping ticket prices affordable.  To do so, we rely on charitable contributions to cover 40% of our operating income.  Without support from our theatre patrons and a broad cross-section of the community, we simply would not be able to bring you the kind of high-quality mainstage performances, and exceptional educational and community outreach programs our community has come to enjoy.

The Laguna Playhouse is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit public benefit organization.  Your gift is tax-deductible to the extent of the law.  Our Federal ID is 95-1509841

Thank you for your generosity!
