San Diego Civic Theatre
It would be almost impossible to try to ascertain the exact time and location of the first theatrical performance in USA. The reason is that a few centuries back, it was an age of intolerance; the playhouse was considered the road to hell and was strongly condemned.

In face of this the periodicals of the day were not encouraged to give any space in their columns. So it was up to the actors to advertise any show as was the custom at that time by distributing leaflets at the residences of the prospective theater goers.

But with an increase in the importance of Colonies, and frequency of communication between America and Europe, the milieu also changed considerably, especially in important towns. In these towns people of means and leisure naturally turned to theater for entertainment.

According to the history of San Diego, the record of the first theatrical performances in San Diego goes back to 1858 (San Diego Mission) and the credit goes to Major Blake. He commanded United States soldiers of Company D, Third Artillery at the time. He initiated a season of six popular plays of the time in the town.

He was also responsible for holding the world premiere of a comedy play set in the Franklin House in Old Town. It was called "The Smiths and the Browns of San Diego". The organization formed by the major was latter known as The American Dramatic Club which comprised mostly of the men in Company D of the US army.

Since then San Diego, especially the down town area, have remained the hub for arts and culture in the region. It has an amazing range of entertainment opportunities and special events. From Broadway play to a magnificent opera production, rock concert to world-class museums and parks, the city has it for both visitors and locals, young and old.

Furthermore, the City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture also made constant efforts over the past 20 years to promote the tourism of the city and its neighborhood that included the endorsement of themed itineraries. Now San Diego is considered one of the top travel destinations (domestic).

Civic Theater was built in 1966 in Downtown on 3rd and B Street as a part of the variety of projects to revitalize the downtown in the 60s. It was designed by the renowned architect Lloyd Ruocco - a graduate from the University of California at Berkeley.

During his early years, Ruocco used to work with architect Lillian Rice and the Requa & Jackson architecture firm. He got recognition when he designed houses and public buildings, including the Civic Theater and the Design Center. He was also behind the formation of Allied Artists' Council of San Diego as well as Citizen's Coordinate for Century-Three.

The San Diego Civic Theater is owned by the City of San Diego and managed by San Diego Theatres, a nonprofit organization with an aim to promote and provide world class theatre experiences to the public.

It houses magnificent Broadway and Opera productions by touring orchestras and dance companies, concerts by the top acts of music industry, film productions as well as lectures by known and famous speakers from around the world and other national acts.

San Diego Opera, La Jolla Music Society, California Ballet and Broadway/San Diego (of Nederlander) are some of the permanent residents of the San Diego Civic Theater. Popular touring Broadway shows like The Producers and Hairspray have also been hosted here. Just northeast of the theater is situated Copley Symphony Hall, which hosts different, touring musical acts.

With almost 3000 plush seats, it is the most prestigious performing arts theater in the city. The hall is equipped with state of the art visual and audio equipment. The theater is also ADA compliant and people with disabilities get all the services easily.

The seating sections categorized by floor which has orchestra and dress circle; 2nd level that includes mezzanine & lower lodge; and 3rd level comprising of upper lodge & balcony. Audiences are advised to dress well especially to an opera or the opening nights of musicals, or other plays. On the other hand, concerts require anything casual like a pair of paints or skirt.
