Our Story 

Costa Mesa Playhouse has been a staple in the Orange County theater community for more than 50 years. Our 73-seat venue offers diverse, quality live theater in an intimate setting. The Playhouse is dedicated to offering a welcoming environment to actors, singers, dancers and stage craftspeople of Orange County.


The Playhouse operates as a not-for-profit organization relying on community support to produce our five-show season. Funding is provided by revenues generated by ticket sales, grants and generous donations from our patrons. Though located on the campus at Rea school, we are not connected nor do we receive monetary support from the city or school district. Donations are greatly appreciated, and volunteers are welcomed.
