About Theatre Bay Area
Theatre Bay Area's mission is to unite, strengthen, promote and advance the theatre community in the San Francisco Bay Area—the third largest theatre center in the country. We are driven by our conviction that the performing arts are an essential public good, critical to a healthy and truly democratic society, and invaluable as a source of personal enrichment and growth. Founded in 1976, Theatre Bay Area is today the largest regional theatre service organization in North America. Theatre Bay Area counts as members some 300 theatre and dance companies, from multi-million dollar organizations to grassroots community groups; nearly 2,000 individuals, including actors, directors, designers, playwrights, technicians, and theatre patrons.
