Community Theatre is the Heart of a City! Since the early 1990s we have presented over 150 full scale theatrical productions including years of playwriting festivals, 30 Shakespeare productions and our crowd pleasing old-west style Melodramas. We have enhanced the lives of our patrons and enriched the community with drama classes for both adults as well as children.
The Camino Real Playhouse is run by a non-profit organization's board - the Capistrano Center For The Performing Arts. The board is made up of a select group of theatre patrons and professionals dedicated to the future of live community theatre here in South Orange County. Board members are actively engaged in the operation of the theatre and truly constitute a working board representing a wide cross-section of the South Orange County community. Duties of the Board Members include fundraising, staffing, management, accounting, set design, public relations, managing ticket sales, marketing, advertising, educational enrichment programs, group sales and even website design.
It takes a lot of creativity and energy to continue bringing you the best possible theatre experience at the lowest possible ticket price and there are 4 Theatre Divisions that report to the board. One controls the daily workings of the Playhouse, one controls the future of the Capistrano Center for the Performing Arts as well as management of our facility, one directs programs for young actors (managed by The Acting Academy For Kids) ... one supports acting programs for adults (the Capistrano Acting Academy), and one controls our annual Shakespeare Festival. Many local restaurants donate their time, efforts, and delicious food for our Gala events and special productions. Many also cooperate in our local restaurant discount program that brings Playhouse patrons to eat at local restaurants before and after plays. We also reward patrons of local restaurants with a complementary beverage when they present cards we have distributed to participating local restaurants.
And a very special thank you to our main sponsors who through theri support and efforts enables the Camino Real Playhouse to remain a driving force for the Arts in the Capistrano Valley.Community Theatre is the Heart of a City!
