Located in Solana Beach, CA, North Coast Repertory Theatre is committed to creating a platform where artist and audience thrive through the intimacy of live theatre, recognizing the power of theatre to challenge complacency, revitalize the imagination, nurture the unexpected and embrace the variety and diversity in our lives. The theatre had its modest beginnings over 25 years ago, and has since evolved into one of the area’s leading performing arts organizations.
North Coast Repertory Theatre has performances year-round to over 40,000 people in an intimate 194-seat, 6-row setting. In addition, the theatre involves thousands of young people each year in the Theatre School @ North Coast Rep’s education and outreach programs.
The performing arts center is committed to providing opportunities for local actors, directors and designers, with seven mainstage productions each year, drawn from classic and contemporary theatre. Four theatre school productions showcase the acting and the technical accomplishments of students studying at the Theatre School. Some shows are aimed at young audiences, while others challenge teen and adult patrons with more thought-provoking themes and age-appropriate casting.
During the summer, The North Coast Repertory Theatre offers Summer Drama Fun Camp, where young actors work on improvisation, movement, vocal work, music, script analysis, and memorization. At the end of the week-long camp, families and friends get to see the kids in action.
