TheatreWorks Silicon Valley

Education in and through the Arts can inspire an individual, electrify a school, and invigorate a community.

Through our programs we strive to nurture the roots of creativity and encourage the instinct for art that lives in every corner of our community. Inquire! Discover! Master! Jump in and join our exceptional teaching artists for a journey sure to awaken the artist within.

With a reputation for artistic excellence, innovation, diversity, and integrity, TheatreWorks is Silicon Valley’s leading professional nonprofit theatre company. TheatreWorks presents a year-round season of musicals, comedies, and dramas in the state-of-the-art Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts and at the graceful California Mission-style Lucie Stern Theatre in Palo Alto.

Founded by Artistic Director Robert Kelley in 1970, TheatreWorks is dedicated to the discovery and development of new voices in the American theatre. It regularly stages new works — many developed in the company’s own New Works Initiative program. It frequently produces regional and West Coast premieres of important modern and contemporary works from Broadway, off-Broadway, and beyond. It also stages distinctive re-imaginings of the classics.
