Military Outreach

San Diego’s military community plays an important role in all of our lives and La Jolla Playhouse is proud to support our local active-duty service members, veterans and their families through our many Military Outreach Initiatives. We strive to enhance the military’s connection to the greater San Diego community, while also enhancing their quality of life through meaningful social and cultural experiences.

Military Outreach Initiatives

  • Free tickets for active-duty military personnel, military families and veterans for every show at La Jolla Playhouse
  • Annual military-focused events including Military Night Out sponsored by Gary Sinise Foundation
  • Veterans’ playwriting workshops
  • Youth Summer Program scholarships for students with family in the military
  • 2018 POP Tour new play for young audiences that was centered on the stories of military families. Over 20,000 students in San Diego saw the performance.
  • Partnering with the USO for students to see the 2021 POP Tour, Pick Me Last.


“A fantastic night with my love, so thankful to make up for so many lost evenings…with special nights like this. The La Jolla Playhouse has been so generous. Thank you!”

– Matthew, USN

“This was an opportunity to build memories that we have missed. This event helped to make up for all of the birthdays, anniversaries, and special occasions we have missed, building new memories to cherish together.”

– Danae, Military spouse

“I just want to say Thank You so much to the La Jolla Playhouse. Not only did my date and I really enjoy the play, but the whole experience from start to finish was wonderful. It was a night out that we both needed. We will definitely be going back to see the next production. Thanks again.”

– James, USMC Veteran
