Turlock’s Cultural Gem: the Community Theatre
T-Town is home to a variety of historical gems. One of our favorites is The Turlock Community Theatre! It was first known as the Turlock High School Auditorium when it opened in 1925. This building serves as one of the most historical resources of the region; in fact it received formal recognition as a historical landmark in the National Register of Historic Places.
The 1000-seat theatre that we know and love today is the product of dedicated volunteers and donors who worked to raise funds to restore the building in the late 1990’s. The grand opening of the Turlock Community Theatre in 1999 served as a catalyst to a new era of cultural enrichment for the community. The Turlock Community Theatre presents nationally and internationally acclaimed artists and is dedicated to enriching the cultural life of the region. The likes of comedian John Caponera, One Night in Memphis, Tower of Power and the Golden Dragon Acrobats graced the stage in 2017. We suggest purchasing season passes to ensure you never miss out on a performance. To do so you may go to the Theatre Box Office at 1574 E. Canal Dr. or call the box office at (209) 668-1169 Tuesday – Friday from 10:00am – 5:30pm.
The comfortable seating, excellent acoustics, high production values and thrilling performances make the Turlock Community Theatre an invaluable part of Turlock. For those of you looking to put on your own performance we recommend looking into renting the Theatre. The superb amenities, helpful staff and reasonable rates make the Theatre an ideal venue.
Year after year world-class entertainment is brought to the stage thanks to the Turlock Community Theatre’s incredible sponsors.
