Introducing… Potrero Stage Memberships!

In 2017, PlayGround completed extensive renovations on the former Thick House Theater and relaunched it as Potrero Stage: PlayGround Center for New Plays, a state-of-the-art performance venue dedicated to new plays and new voices for the stage. Today, on the 20th anniversary of the opening of Thick House, we launch the next stage in our continued growth and development!
