Theatre Arts and Film

Our program offers a variety of classes in acting, technical theatre, film studies and theatre history. The City Theatre production season consists of our Mainstage productions, Storytime children’s productions, and our touring children’s troupe the “Pennywhistle Players”. During the summer we move outdoors as the producers of the Sacramento Shakespeare Festival.

We welcome all members of the community to audition and participate in our award-winning program.
