Cherished community assets managed on behalf of the community and the City of San Diego. As a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, San Diego Theatres’ mission is to enrich the region through exceptional performing arts and education experiences, to foster collaboration in the arts community, and to be a catalyst for economic development downtown in the arts district.

Building upon its years of successful stewardship of City-owned theatres, San Diego Theatres is positioned to expand its services for the community:

  • Education: Seeding the next generation’s exposure and value of live performances with additional programming for young audiences. Continued support of outstanding services provided by Classics 4 Kids, California Ballet and San Diego Opera.
  • Programming: The possibilities are endless!  Exceptional, exciting and high demand shows.  With your support, even more stars shall grace our stages for your enjoyment.
  • Affordability & Accessibility: We proudly host performances by valued local non-profits California Ballet, Classics 4 Kids, La Jolla Music Society, Mainly Mozart, San Diego Gay Men’s Chorus and San Diego Opera, and support them with discounts in excess of $460,000 annually.  Funding from our Founding Friends ensures continued support and partnering with local non-profits at the Balboa and Civic Theatres.
