Theatre Eclectic in Santa Barbara/Goleta, CA: providing equal access to theater for artists of all backgrounds and levels of experience; and providing equal access to theater for underserved audiences. . .


“We aim to create circles of community: amongst our artists, and between our artists and the audiences. . . In our small corner of the world, we hope to sew together the rifts in our culture that of late have caused us so much concern.  I like the idea of diverse patches sewn together into a unified quilt; the metaphor suggests warmth.  That's what we hope you will feel as you become a part of our Theatre Eclectic community.”

Philip Levien, Artistic Director
