SUPPORT | Center Stage Theater

BE A CENTER STAGE THEATER STAR!

Center Stage Theater exists to provide a professional, affordable, and accessible performing arts venue for Santa Barbara. Located in the heart of the downtown arts and cultural district, Center Stage encourages works that celebrate new artists and the cultural diversity of our community. The theater strives to create an environment where people of all ages and levels of expertise can participate in a hands-on experience as artists, technicians and audience members.

In the last year, Center Stage was home to 191 performances by 57 production companies featuring more than 600 performers for more than 14,000 audience members. These performances include film, music, dance and theater and the productions range from professional shows to children performing publicly for the first time. Click here to see a selection of past performances. There are several groups who have made Center Stage their home: Lit Moon Theatre Festival, Out of the Box Theater Company, The Dance Network and DramaDogs, to name a few. In addition to these old friends, each year we welcome the largest collection of new production companies of any venue in Santa Barbara. When you support Center Stage you are in fact supporting each of these organizations.

Donations to Center Stage Theater are used to do many things: they help keep our rates low and affordable, they help purchase and maintain equipment for the theater, and they support our Rental Subsidy Fund.

Hard work and a broad base of support brought this theater to life, and built it into the wonderful community treasure it has become. You can help us foster these creative ideas and make innovative and exciting performances possible by making a donation today.
