Theatre Alliance


Theatre is woven into the fabric of our lives and neighborhoods. While the intrinsic effect of theatre on the community is profound, the economic impact to the San Diego region is equally significant – supporting jobs, generating government revenue, and acting as a key player in our tourism industry. The Theatre Alliance exists for the following purposes:


Theater Alliance is a consortium of theater companies designed to preserve and promote live theatre as a vital, inclusive and artistic community.


Under the umbrella of the San Diego Performing Arts League, the Theatre Alliance is a consortium of theaters and theater companies who provide its members with an array of programs and events designed to promote a vibrant theater community in San Diego. These include special events, industry-wide marketing initiatives, and corporate sponsorships, as well as numerous programs geared to making theater tickets and show information more accessible to the patron. Other key services include government advocacy for the industry, maintaining extensive resources and community relations & mentorships designed to promote the organization’s well being of theaters of all sizes. Its mission is to enlighten and increase the public’s knowledge, appreciation and awareness of the theatrical arts and to provide a forum for the discussion of issues relating to the preservation and promotion of live theatre as a vital and culturally significant artistic medium. In all of its programs and services, the Alliance endeavors to strengthen our inclusive community.
