Montgomery Theater

Starting with our production of H.M.S. Pinafore in June 2020, the historic Montgomery Theater in downtown San José will once again serve as our primary venue. 

The Montgomery Theater is located at the corner of Market and San Carlos Streets, in the same complex as the Tech Museum, Civic Center, and Parkside Hall.

Montgomery Theater

We have performed approximately two-thirds of our shows at the Montgomery since our founding in 1972. Our Discovery Series performs in smaller, more intimate venues which have included Le Petit Trianon (now Trianon Theatre), Mission City Center for the Performing Arts, Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts Second Stage, Santa Clara University Music and Dance Facility, and Tateuchi Hall at the Community School of Music and Arts in Mountain View.

Location: Downtown San José

Address: 271 S. Market St (W. San Carlos at Market St.) San José, CA 95113

Seating: Seating is assigned, with the seat number and row appearing on your ticket. Both the balcony and orchestra seating sections are wheelchair accessible.
