6th Street Playhouse is proud to be your favorite live theater venue in Sonoma County for six out of the last seven years.  We are so grateful to be recognized for our work by YOU, our amazing patrons.  As we continue to wait to open our doors to you in person, we are proud to be offering you livestream theater productions as well as special online events.  Stay tuned to see what we are up to this spring!

A Message from Artistic Director, Jared Sakren


We here at The Playhouse are working very hard to plan a full season of great plays starting in the Fall of 2021.  We will be presenting the very best selection of productions that will thrill you, move you, entertain you and make you think— doing all the great things that only live theatre can do. We appreciate your continued support and patience as we navigate through these challenging times, and we have your health and safety at the forefront of our concerns. When you return to the Playhouse we will ensure you will not have to worry about the safety or health of our spaces.  In the meantime, we will roll out the new season sometime in February. I think you will all be very excited by it, and that you’ll want to secure your tickets right away to all these great shows!  Thank you all again for being such passionate and loyal supporters of The Playhouse.  I cannot tell you how gratifying it is to know how important we are to you and our community!

Community Outreach

At 6th Street Playhouse, we are constantly striving to engage members of the community, to foster meaningful communication and a continued love of theater. In that light, we are currently working on the following initiatives for 2021:

Let’s talk theatre! A new online talk show with our hosts Patrick Varner and Rodney Fierce. In each episode, we will invite a member of our community and a professional actor to talk about issues that are of interest to us all. Tune in on our Facebook page on January 13th at 4pm for our first live episode!

Workshops of new pieces written and performed by local artists. We are thrilled to collaborate with our first New Works Artist, Gamal Chasten!

Partnerships with other local organizations to serve our youth with stellar educational programming and opportunities for leadership.

Free tickets to select shows for first responders, health care workers, police, and firefighters.

Play Festivals featuring and supporting the LGBTQ community.

6th Street Studio

We are now offering Virtual and Performance-based classes for our Winter Session, for adults and children K-12. We’ve got something for everyone – Master Classes with Broadway professionals, Storytelling for all ages, Musical Theatre Appreciation and Movement, and much more.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

6th Street Playhouse joins the voices in our community and country who condemn hatred, violence, and racial injustice.

The Arts are a place where our community can come to hear messages that bring us together, that unite us, that form a common bond with all humanity, and it is as artists that we can help shape the world we live in. We will not stand with those who would turn us against each other, nor will we condone the unjust treatment of anyone because of the color of their skin, their ethnicity, or their background. Our theatre dedicates itself to ensuring that all people are welcome inside our doors, and, when we are allowed to resume activities, in every activity we conduct — be it classes, performances, rehearsals, in our staffing, our board and volunteers — we will assure inclusivity and diversity at all levels.
