Join Us in WOWing San Diego!

Giving Opportunities for the WITHOUT WALLS Festival



As a non-profit theatre company, La Jolla Playhouse relies on support from individuals, corporations, foundations, and the government to produce and present the WOW Festival. Without Walls productions are pieces created by artists that take place outside the confines of a traditional theatre.

Over four days, guests will interact with 20 – 24 thoughtfully curated pieces. Bringing high-caliber art to so many San Diegans takes extensive resources and planning. Our goal is to make tickets accessible to all of us — most of the festival productions will be free to the public, and various paid tickets will be capped at $20.

In appreciation for your support, we will WOW you with a weekend filled with exciting performances, personalized hospitality, and access to the intimate creative process.
