We are pleased to be celebrating our 34th season.Did you know that Scripps Ranch Theatre is known as one of the most successful, award-winning theaters in San Diego? That we play to packed houses and continue to grow our subscription base each year? We are growing fast and this is an exciting time to get involved.

2012 marks the 34th anniversary of Scripps Ranch Theatre in San Diego. SRT was born in 1978 and thrived even though it didn’t have a permanent home, and members stored theatrical props and scenery in their garages and living rooms. With no permanent venue for performances or storage, one production was even held in a shopping center parking lot.

Another performance, on the basketball court of the Scripps Ranch Swim & Racquet Club, saw a rabbit steal the show by hopping onto the stage, being caught and placed in a prop basket, and then jumping out again. Wildlife became less of a problem in 1992, when the theater found its current home in the Legler Benbough Theatre at what is now the Alliant International University campus off Pomerado Road in Scripps Ranch.

SRT has bold plans for the future!


“Scripps Ranch Theatre continues to grow professionally and artistically. Long-term season ticket holders tell us they are delighted with our productions. Those who are discovering SRT for the first time say they are impressed with the high quality and intimate theatre experience.”
