Cinnabar Theater is committed to training young people in the performing arts to make a lasting and meaningful connection between the arts and their daily lives. We see the impact theater has on kids every day. It teaches empathy and responsibility. It fosters creativity, teamwork and leadership. It creates community.
Our Young Repertory was founded in 1983 to counteract the precipitous decline in arts funding for public schools. Over the years, we’ve served thousands of students and are enormously proud that no child is ever turned away for lack of funds.
The Young Rep serves youth of all ages, from 4-year-olds who are just starting pre-school to 18-year-olds finishing high school. We offer fully-produced shows, fun summer camps, after-school classes, Broadway-level seminars, ticket discounts, and community service opportunities. Everything takes place in the iconic red schoolhouse perched atop a grassy hill on the outskirts of Petaluma.
How to get involved:
GET DISCOUNTED TICKETS
We want to make theatergoing a lifelong habit, so we offer frequent discounts for youth. Tickets for professional shows are usually $15 or $25, but they can be had for just 9 bucks for our community-building Friday Night Live events.
As a nonprofit organization, Cinnabar depends on volunteers to serve our community. Whether you’re a child, a teen, or a grown up, we welcome your assistance.

We’re always looking for talented teachers, directors, and choreographers who can inspire and guide our students.
MAKE A DONATION
We’re enormously proud of our Young Rep. But the more children we serve, the more it costs. Ticket sales and tuitions only pay half our expenses for these programs! Through individual donors and corporate partnerships, we can continue these important activities for local families. As a nonprofit and an integral part of our close-knit community for four decades, we deeply appreciate your generosity.
