The Costa Mesa Playhouse is a 73-seat, not-for-profit, Community Theater that has been serving greater Orange County for over 40 years. The Playhouse is dedicated to presenting affordable, quality, live theater in a comfortable and intimate setting, and to offering the talented actors, singers, dancers, and stage craftspeople of Orange County a welcoming environment in which to practice their craft. With a season running from September through June and five productions per season, the Playhouse offers a diverse array of plays and musicals to our theatergoing public.
The Costa Mesa Playhouse operates under the stewardship of a volunteer Board. All board officers and members donate their time in support of the overall organization and also act as producers for individual productions. Most of the behind the scenes duties at the theater, including set construction, facility maintenance, and ticketing/reservations to name just a few, are performed by the Board and a small group of community volunteers.
