About Us

cabrillo playhouse has been bringing comedies, drama and musicals to san clemente since 1953!

The Cabrillo Playhouse came from humble beginnings as the San Clemente Community Theatre originally established in 1953. Each year for well over half a century we have worked diligently to continue our rich tradition of being a significant cultural asset to South Orange County by providing an outlet for creative community involvement as we endeavor to enrich, educate, excite and entertain artists and audiences through a variety of performing arts in an intimate setting. Come join the fun and purchase season tickets so you don’t miss a single night of great theatre in San Clemente.

Donate And Contribute To
Quality Live Theatre

Help us raise the roof over our stage. We are on a mission to improve your theatre going experience by expanding the space above our stage which will allow us to improve lights, sets, and stage space. The Cabrillo Playhouse counts on our donors who generously contribute each year.

Events, Audtions & Casting

Through these donations, the theatre is able to bridge the gap between ticket sales and operating expenses so that we can continue to bring quality theatre to San Clemente. That means outstanding sets, costumes, playbills and, of course the royalties. The donations made to our non-profit organization are all tax deductible.
