This was one of the finest plays that Altarena has produced. the lead actor did a steller performance and received a standing ovation. If anyone has the time and can get tickets this is a must see.

Small local theatre is surely welcome! Better than trucking to SF with added expenses. The plays, shows are highly rated! With a small round about theatre, all seats are great! Prices and parking is right on. You need to buy tickets on line then pick...More

Performance was good, difficult for seniors and disabled people to get seating. Holding seats for friends and family is ok, but a seat should be given up when a person with disability comes in. There where several people with walking problems having to climb up...More

Saw "The First Supper" at Altarena Playhouse in Alameda this past weekend. Well written, well acted, humorous, very entertaining, & at a fantastically reasonable price for Bay Area live entertainment (<$20/person)! It's a small, cozy theater, where every seat is a good one, acoustics are...More

It's a very nice small theater in Alameda. Here you'll find a very good quality entertainment. Live performances are quite professional. Definitely worth the drive from as far away as, say, San Jose Pacifica or Concord.

We last attended a performance here in mid-December. The show was "Always Patsy Cline" and it was fabulous. The theater is small and over the years the performances have become better and better. We have been season ticket holders for about six years and never...More

I recently saw Altarena Playhouse's production of Neil Simon's "Barefoot in the Park" and was really impressed! It was a great quality production and tickets were only $26, and even better, with no additional service fees! It's a small-medium sized theater and this production was...More
