Your Impact

Because of you, some of the biggest breakthroughs in San Diego’s innovation hub begin at La Jolla Playhouse. With your vision, we continue to discover brand-new voices. With your support, we inspire audiences to see the world in a new light. And together, we’re investing in fresh perspectives that move conversations and community forward.

Your support transforms the lives of so many. From the more than 125,000 audience members who attend our performances annually, to the 20,000 students reached last year through the Performance Outreach Program (POP) tour, to the next generation of actors and artists in the Young Performers programs, you help us to strengthen the foundations and the future of our community.
