Theatre First

TheatreFIRST was established in 1993 as a nonprofit professional theatre company, dedicated to bringing the finest works of international drama to East Bay audiences. Since our first production in 1994, we have focused our efforts on bringing to our audience drama that throws light on diverse cultures.

We seek to produce theatre to a very high standard. We use professional actors, mostly members of the actors’ union, Equity. Despite our restricted budgets, our professionalism and programming continues to attract some of the best theatrical talent in the Bay Area to work with us. Critics have consistently called attention to the high standard of acting on the TheatreFIRST stage.
