In 1963, Theatre Palisades was founded by three television writers; Ken Rosen, Sheldon Stark, and Jacquie Chester. They wanted to produce original plays, starting with their own scripts. Performances were held at the Pacific Palisades Jewish Community Center (now Kelhiath Israel) on Sunset Blvd.
By 1967, Theatre Palisades had become a community theatre. Theatre Palisades is membership and subscriber driven. They have continuously produced high quality live performances.
In November, 1988, just in time for the 25th anniversary of the group, Theatre Palisades opened the new 125 seat theatre, which was named Pierson Playhouse, in honor of Lelah and J. Townley Pierson who had not only generously donated the property but also contributed extensively to the Building Fund.
