Three of Santa Barbara’s historic theaters, the Granada Theatre, the Lobero Theatre, and Ensemble Theatre Company at the New Vic, each with their own rich history of world-class performances, are collaborating in a new partnership to further promote the thriving performing arts scene in the community. By working together as Santa Barbara’s Historic Theatre District, these three theaters are ushering in a new era of cooperative programming and access to the performing arts to Santa Barbara’s savvy patrons and presenters.
The establishment of Santa Barbara’s Historic Theatre District is a chance for the historic theaters to collaborate on community-wide performing arts initiatives. The three theaters are all located in downtown Santa Barbara, allowing arts patrons the convenience of walking to all the cultural venues and events. Stay tuned for more announcements in this exciting collaboration, including multi-venue ticket packaging, convenient purchasing, volunteer opportunities, and more.
"This kind of collaboration is what Santa Barbara is all about, and the partnership established here will enhance the performing arts experience for artists, residents, and visitors throughout the year.”
