Don't Miss the 6th Street Playhouse

Whether you prefer dramas like 'To Kill a Mockingbird' or musicals like 'Guys and Dolls,' 'Annie,' and 'West Side Story,' you'll find them at the 6th Street Playhouse in Santa Rosa, known for taking a brave approach to works both old and new. 

On The Main Stage

These shows are performed in the company's 185-seat G.K. Hardt main stage. The 2019-20 season features "Gypsy," "Oliver!," "Buddy," "Sweeney Todd," "Hair," and the Natural Disasters Improv Comedy. 

On The Monroe Stage

There's also a more intimate, 99-seat black box stage known as The Monroe Stage, which for the 2019-20 season presents "The Book Club Play," "Wait Until Dark," "Fully Committed," "A View From the Bridge," and "The Legend of Georgia McBride."

School of Drama

The Playhouse also offers classes for kids, teens, and adults, as well as a summer musical theater program that culminates in a four-performance run of a Broadway musical.


An Historic Setting

The 6th Street Playhouse is housed in the more-than-120-year-old Del Monte cannery building near Santa Rosa's historic Railroad Square. Built in 1894, the red-brick building was one of the few in Santa Rosa that withstood the devastation of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. In 2004, the Santa Rosa Players and Actors Theatre became partners under one board of directors. Together they renovated the former fruit-packing plant into one of the best theater venues in Sonoma County.

Whether you make it a full evening or a weekend, be prepared to be inspired and captivated by performances at the 6th Street Playhouse. It's a unique venue in downtown Santa Rosa, and restaurants and lodging are easily available in the nearby Railroad Square historic district.
