Welcome to San Gabriel Mission Playhouse
History and Culture Come to Life at the Mission Playhouse
Constructed in 1927 to house John Steven McGroarty’s epic Mission Play, charting the establishment of the California Missions, the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse is a beautiful Spanish style building steeped in history and home to numerous music, theater and dance performances.
The Mission Playhouse is also the perfect venue for graduations, public meetings and film shoots and over the years has provided the location for major Hollywood movies and TV shows.
We are very happy to be working once again with the Pasadena Star News, this years media sponsor.
We hope you enjoy your time on our website and find everything you need. If not, just get in touch and we’ll be very happy to help you. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Anna Cross, Playhouse Director
