At Theatre Bay Area we believe in the power of theatre
To spark empathy and understanding
To open our minds and hearts
To excite our imaginations.
Theatre gives voice to the voiceless and brings us stories that open our world to reveal life's joys as well as its injustices, reminding us of our common humanity.
Theatre Bay Area is the largest arts service organization of our kind, supporting the radical creativity of our members (300 theatre companies and 2,000 individual members) with unparalleled access to educational, financial and professional resources.
The San Francisco Bay Area is one of the largest and most diverse theatre communities in the country, With more than 400 producing companies in nine counties. The region boasts more theatre companies per capita than almost
any other metropolitan area in the
nation, and is home to tens of thousands of individual theatre artists, including actors, directors, designers, dance artists, playwrights, dramaturgs, and technicians. More than 200 new plays are premiered here each year, many going on
to wider success.
