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 thousands of music, theater and dance performances.

Located in the historic Mission District of San Gabriel, the Playhouse provides a home for many local and international performing arts groups who produce and present a huge range of cultural experiences from Mariachi to Hip-Hop, from Shakespeare to Broadway and Classical Ballet to Folk Dance; truly A World of Arts and Culture.

The Mission Playhouse is also the perfect venue for High-School graduations, public meetings and film shoots and over the years has provided the location for major Hollywood movies and TV shows.
