Well regarded as one of the best playhouses in all of Southern California, the Pasadena Playhouse is perfect for a family looking for some quality entertainment around town.

First constructed in 1924, the playhouse is a beloved piece of Pasadena history, and is a favorite of both tourists and locals alike. Some past productions include Twelve Angry Men, Aladdin and His Winter Wish, and Above the Fold.

Guests are invited to take tours of the playhouse, which can be tailored to specific topics of interest, ranging from particular productions to the building’s physical history. Tours are complimentary, but donations are encouraged. There are also pre-show events at the playhouse, where the Artistic Director and members of the design team gather to answer questions from audience members. This event is also free and open to the public.

Aside from the playhouse itself, there are a wide variety of dining options in the immediate area, which make it a perfect way to spend a night out with the family.
