About the Ticket Supplier: Hillbarn Theatre

Hillbarn Theatre boasts a seventy-two-year long history in the San Francisco Bay Area. Beginning as Peninsula Little Theatre in 1934, Hillbarn performed in school auditoriums, under the direction of Robert Brauns, as part of the College of San Mateo Adult Education Program. Hillbarn’s founders, Brauns, Sam Rolph and Ralph Schram took the name “Hillbarn” from two outdoor summers at a barn on a hill on the Belmont-San Mateo border. At this site, the traditions of free intermission coffee and a courtyard bonfire were born.
