Since taking flight in 2003, Cygnet Theatre has grown into one of San Diego's leading theatre companies and is known for producing adventurous, entertaining and thought-provoking live professional theatre year round.
Cygnet began life in 2003 producing high caliber work in a 165-seat house located in San Diego's Rolando area near SDSU. Nearly half of all productions have been local premieres, as Cygnet believes strongly in bringing new voices to the community. These have been balanced with classics and musicals. The community response from the beginning was tremendous and Cygnet soon needed a larger venue. In 2008, Cygnet moved to the 246-seat Old Town Theatre in Old Town San Diego State Historic Park, where Cygnet reaches over 40,000 people annually and remains committed to bringing multiple unique voices to the stage.
In 11 years, Cygnet has produced over 62 plays, created jobs for over 392 actors, 102 Equity contracts, 200 designers, 61 stage managers, 43 backstage technicians and 50 musicians.
