Are you a leader in your community?

Join our Playhouse Leadership Council (PLC) and connect with other leaders in the San Diego community!

The Playhouse Leadership Council is a cross-cultural partnership of community leaders, whose mission is to:

  • Create a welcoming and inclusive environment
  • Act as ambassadors for La Jolla Playhouse in San Diego
  • Build and nurture relationships with new audiences

 
Work with us.

Members should attend scheduled meetings including the private artistic chat scheduled prior to each production. Council members work directly in the community to increase awareness of theatre and to help overcome geographic, economic and perceptive barriers.

Have fun with us!

PLC members are invited to a preview performance of each production and are often extended invitations to Playhouse special events and discounted offers. Through your involvement in PLC you are enriching and enhancing the lives of fellow San Diegans.

Are You Interested In Joining PLC?

Email [email protected] and tell us why you’d like to join!
