Dear Playhouse Friends & Supporters,

We consider the health and well-being of our patrons, artists and staff – our theatre family - to be our highest priority. Like you, we are following the news and share your concerns about the COVID-19/Coronavirus and want to share with you the measures we are taking at Santa Monica Playhouse.

As of now, all performances are postponed. We're hoping to bring back our Family Theatre Series mid to end of April. Mistakes Were Made is on hold, with hopes to return in May/June. GERONIMO has been postponed, we'll have new show dates ASAP. Our friend The Hebrew Hillbilly is moving her Benefit performance forward to May 17, in an effort to support the theatre during what will be a difficult time moving forward. We will keep you posted on any further changes.

If you had tickets booked with us, we will happily reschedule your reservation at no charge. We are making an exception to our cancellation and exchange fees temporarily, so that patrons can feel at ease to make the best decision for themselves .

If you are able to do so, choosing to make your ticket sale a donation supports us during these trying times, and we appreciate your consideration.

You can:

  • Donate your ticket and receive a tax deduction for the total ticket value
  • Credit your ticket value towards a future Santa Monica Playhouse production

As we are allowing and encouraging our staff to work from home, we ask for your patience as it may take more time than usual to address the needs of all of you, our theatre family. Please email us at with any requests or questions.

We're proud to have all of you as part of our theatre family for the past 60 years, and hope we can continue to count on our community for support. Without the revenue from ticket sales or educational partners (many theatre field trips and workshops have chosen to cancel or reschedule, understandably), we are depending on the support of our loyal friends and theatre family to keep the theatre open and moving forward with all shows and educational programs when this difficult time has passed. We need you now more than ever. You can make a donation by clicking here. As always, your donation will be fully tax-deductible. 

For additional information regarding COVID-19 and guidelines to help keep yourself and others healthy, we recommend you visit the CDC website .

We hope everyone stays safe and calm. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us.

Best wishes to all,
Santa Monica Playhouse
