Hartnell College Western Stage

Founded in 1974, The Western Stage (TWS) has evolved over the last four decades into one of the most respected regional theatres on California’s Central Coast.

Supported in part by a grant from The National Endowment for the Arts, TWS is committed to enriching the culture of its community by bringing together professional artists, theatre students, and community members to produce a dynamic season of plays that enhances the lives of both the artist and audience; developing new works that speak to the history and culture of the Salinas Valley; and providing educational opportunities to allow students of all skill levels to explore and develop their unique talents.
