Cinnabar Theater, Petaluma

#16 of 21 in Nightlife in Sonoma County
Theater · Concert / Show
Every year, Cinnabar Theater produces a thrilling mix of plays, musicals, operas, and concerts in a remarkable range of genres. Cinnabar’s Young Rep offers extensive activities for local youth, and the Cinnabar Singers welcome anyone who wants to be part of a chorus. All these events take place in the iconic red schoolhouse perched atop a grassy hill on the outskirts of Petaluma.

Audiences have flocked to performances in this intimate setting since 1972, when Marvin and Jan Klebe established an arts center for the community. Along with their sons, they transformed a charming 1908 schoolhouse into a jewel-box theater that has hosted successful shows for four decades. Now Cinnabar is producing another year of lively performances for its loyal audience.

  • I just went to Cinnabar Theatre for the first time on Sunday 2/10/19 to see "Underneath the Lintel" and I absolutely loved the show and the theatre. It was easy to get to on Petaluma Blvd. and they have their own parking lot with attendants. We ordered tickets online the night before and picked them up at Will Call 10 minutes before the show started with no lines at all. It's a small theater with only 8 rows so even if your in the back it's a small intimate atmosphere. They serve some sweets, beer, wine and something I thought was really unique, they serve show themed cocktails. Overall it was a great experience and the theatre has a lot of character for a small venue. Some people may balk at $30 a ticket but to support local theatre I didn't have a problem paying that.
  • Fun local theatre to support home town. Really enjoyed the performances of the young actors.
