How you help This group of passionate theatre lovers serves the theatre in so many vital and important ways. They bring joy, expertise, skill, intelligence and (perhaps most important) a genuine love of the art and craft of the theatre to everything that they do.
About us Early in 1979 a small notice appeared in the newspaper requesting that anyone interested in assisting with the reopening of the Pasadena Playhouse attend a meeting. Over 80 people showed up for the meeting held at Ambassador College. That was the beginning of the Friends of the Pasadena Playhouse. Since then, the organization has grown to about 400 volunteers who usher, feed a cast and production crew, help with mailings, maintain the Playhouse Archives, give tours and assist with many other services required by the theatre.
