BroadStage BroadStage


Located at the Santa Monica College Performing Arts Center, the cutting-edge performance space presents a roster of daring artistic showcases.

Offering Arts Patrons Intimacy and Accessibility


Named for philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad, BroadStage opened in 2008 to the public in collaboration with Santa Monica College in Santa Monica, California. With a capacity of only 500 seats, BroadStage's Mainstage is simultaneously grand and intimate, allowing guests in the theater's rear seats to maintain a clear view of artists on stage. Nearby, the Edye is a 100-seat black box theater showcasing innovative works by emerging artists, while the East Wing is an indoor/outdoor venue that hosts additional performances.

In fulfillment of its mission to expand the role of arts in our communities, BroadStage offers exceptional performances in dance, film, theatre, jazz, opera, and film. In addition, its education and community-outreach programs engage 15,000 children, parents, educators, and community members each year through events designed to make the arts accessible to all.
