Shows dont happen often enough here, but when they do, its usually a treat. The Berkeley Community Theater, on the Berkeley High School campus, is a Grecian-style seated venue which is quite intimate and elegant for a school auditorium. This 3,500-capacity hall features a large floor section and an upper and lower balcony. Located close to bus lines and the Downtown Berkeley BART station.

Discounted tickets are available to UC Berkeley students, faculty, staff, and alumni, seniors, non-UC Berkeley students, and members of KQED and the East Bay Arts Card.
