The Garvin Theatre


Located on the beautiful West Campus of Santa Barbara City College and overlooking the exquisite Santa Barbara Harbor, the newly renovated Garvin Theatre is a spectacular place to see a play. Re-opened in the spring of 2012 after an extensive three year renovation project, the Garvin Theatre features all new rigging, lighting and sound systems, and a re-designed audience chamber with improved acoustics, comfortable new chairs, and handrails on the aisles. Situated on a comfortable incline, each of the 380 seats comes with a clear, unobstructed view of the stage.

The Jurkowitz Theatre


The Jurkowitz Theatre is a theatrical jewel and an audience favorite. Extensively remodeled in 2002 and updated in 2012, The Jurkowitz Theatre is a 100 seat black box theatre that is both cozy and luxurious, and provides a home for plays that require an intimate atmosphere. Due to the nature of the theatre, no late seating is allowed, so please plan to arrive early.

Wheelchair Accessible

The Garvin and Jurkowitz Theatres are both accessible for patrons in wheelchairs.  For both theatres please let the Box Office staff know if you need accommodations for either seating in a wheelchair or for mobility challenges, such as unable to manage steps.

Assisted Listening

Both theatres have the assisted listening systems available for all performances.  Check in with the House Manager to get a headset if you need this service.

Live Captioning

Live-captioning for the hearing-impaired is provided on select performances.  For this service we run the script on a lighted sign while the play is in progress.  Please check with the Box Office for dates.
