At CTC we believe it is important for us to think of excellence as a process rather than a product. Our company strives toward the goal of outstanding theatre. As we grow and mature our concern is with the future, not the past. What we are attempting in the present is always far more exciting than our past successes. We are passionately driven by our search for excellence.

General Director & Founder
The California Theatre Center is a company with three major programs: a resident company that performs primarily for students and families from October to May; a resident company that performs primarily for adults in the summer; and touring companies that perform regionally, nationally and internationally.
The California Theatre Center (CTC) is a labor of love and of the power of live theatre.
Over its 39 years of existence, the company has provided both a home for collaborative, creative work in our field and a home for artists who seek to stretch their limits by associating with a company which focuses on a collaborative philosophy, the stability of long-term contracts and also on allowing them to grow and develop in their field. We stress the ensemble and the joy of performing and creating theatre which nourishes, illuminates and transforms lives. While our audience members of all ages and our theatre education students are the recipients of our company’s reflective values and of our dedication to our mission, CTC attempts to provide the best possible environment for theatre artists to thrive.
