Berkeley Playhouse


East Bay


Our mission is to create theater and programs that engage, ignite, and celebrate diverse Bay Area audiences through a thriving arts education department, a professional mainstage season, and community outreach. In support of our mission, we maintain and enhance the historic Julia Morgan Theater. A commitment to community, equity, diversity, inclusion, and empowerment is at the heart of our work.

Founded in 2007, Berkeley Playhouse produces theater that is “intelligent, relevant, and soul-stirring.” We bring together performers and audience members of all ages. We strive to provide experiences that fully engage performers and audiences.

Berkeley Playhouse also offers educational programs. We provide classes, camps and performance training in acting, singing, dancing, and technical theater. Children in our programs receive training from the best Bay Area teaching artists – many of them directors or performers in our MainStage Season shows.

Julia Morgan Theater is the home to Berkeley Playhouse. The Julia Morgan Theater was built in 1910, and is a community treasure. The 328-seat theater provides an intimate space for patrons of our shows that feels like “home.”
