La Jolla Playhouse's Student Board of Trustees is an advocacy and advisory board involving creative and dynamic students throughout San Diego County who demonstrate strong leadership qualities. The purpose of the Board is to introduce a young audience to the innovative spirit of La Jolla Playhouse and the imaginative and surprising work it produces.
Student Board members learn about the artistic vision and general operation of the Playhouse and contribute to that vision by supporting education, marketing and development programs that reach out to the San Diego community.
In the past year, the Student Board has had the opportunity to meet the artists and experts who bring La Jolla Playhouse's shows to its audiences. They have planned and held several exciting events to celebrate the Playhouse's offerings as well as each board member's love of theatre. Each event has brought more young people to the Playhouse, building on the strong following for challenging live theatre that exists in San Diego. They have had professional development opportunities in the form of workshops and guest speakers. And, they have had a great time doing it!
Student Board members serve a term that is generally the length of one academic year. New Student Board members are invited to join each summer after submitting an application and participating in an interview. Student Board applications are accepted in late spring, and will be available online. Please keep checking back.
