Past Productions

For more than three decades the producers and artists of San Jose Playhouse have produced quality live theatrical events and productions. It all began with San Jose’s Young Conservatory Theatre of San Jose which led to Children’s Theater Workshop and California Theatre Wing in the east bay throughout the ’80s and ’90s. In 1997, the producers brought Schoolhouse Rock Live! to San Francisco’s Union Square and San Jose’s Oasis Nightclub before launching the National Jewish Theatre Festival to produce The MeshugaNutcracker! for multiple national tours and a national release as a Fathom Event in movie theaters. In 2009, The Retro Dome was born and along with it the producers’ now long-running Sing-along Series. Today, San Jose Playhouse continues the legacy of bringing high quality entertainment to the community now resident at 3Below Theaters, re-opened in 2018 in downtown San Jose.

From where we’ve been to where we are going, we hope you will continue to join us as we bring you more and more programming to make more history.
