Welcome to the Center Stage Theater Blog!

This is our new blog! A place to learn what’s coming up at Center Stage, learn more about the groups performing here and other fun stuff.

During these challenging times, this blog keeps us connected, keeps you up to date, and helps us navigate this ever-changing new world together.

Following the Digital Arts Festival Link in the corner to see the beginning of the Festival from the Spring and Summer of 2020. We began by featuring the work of different artists, including an interview with each. Get to know some of Santa Barbara’s most talented artists, as well as some friends from beyond.

The Digital Arts Festival continues. Now that we are able to return to the theater, at least to create videos, we have begun creating videos that can be accessed through our main website. We will continue to evolve and create and share until the theater is back and fully opened. Be sure to follow along with our adventures.
