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.
