Genesis West is committed to producing high quality stimulating plays by contemporary playwrights while showcasing the work of Santa Barbara’s best actors, directors, designers, artists and musicians in a supportive environment.

Almost all involved with Genesis West are doing so on a volunteer basis, and for that we are grateful. However ticket sales only cover about half the cost of staging a production so your help and support is much needed to make this company succeed and be able to continue creating the quality theatre experience you expect from Genesis West.

Every dollar donated to Genesis West goes right into to making our plays happen. Donations of all sizes are very much needed and truly appreciated and they are tax deductible! Genesis West is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.

Genesis West will be presenting two plays this year, one in the fall and one in the spring. Each production runs for three weeks, a total of ten performances, at The Center Stage Theatre, in the heart of the Santa Barbara downtown cultural district at the Paseo Nuevo Mall. Performances run Thursday, Friday and Saturday Evenings with a Sunday matinee.

Audience numbers vary from 700 to 1000 people per production. These are 700 to 1000 people who go to Genesis West plays! That means they are enthusiastic, literate, culturally aware, educated, sophisticated yet hip, and have disposable income. Aren’t those the very people you want more of for your business?

Please contact for more information.
