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 Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts and at the Lucie Stern Theatre in Palo Alto.
Dedicated to the discovery and development of new voices in the American theatre, TheatreWorks regularly stages new works, many developed in the company’s own New Works Initiative; regional and West Coast premieres of important modern and contemporary works from Broadway, off-Broadway, and beyond; and distinctive re-imaginings of the classics.
TheatreWorks is led by Founding Artistic Director Robert Kelley and Managing Director Phil Santora, and celebrates its 47th year with the 2016/17 Season.

Embracing the creation of new works, the reinvigoration of the classics, and the arts education of new generations, their work exemplifies our region’s values of inclusion and innovation while providing a sense of place and community.
