Who is Marin Theatre? 

Marin Theatre was founded in 1966, when 35 Mill Valley residents came together under the leadership of Sali Lieberman to create the Mill Valley Center for the Performing Arts (MVCPA). The nonprofit organization brought arts as diverse as film, theater, poetry, dance and concerts of classical, jazz and folk music to Marin County for a decade. After a number of successful community theater productions, MVCPA began to exclusively produce and present theater performances in 1977. By 1987, MTC had become a professional theater company, opening its own theater complex and joining with other local theaters to negotiate the first regional Actors’ Equity contract in the Bay Area. MTC joined both the League of Resident Theatres (LORT) and National New Play Network (NNPN) in 2008. Now rechristened Marin Theatre, the company is the leading professional theater in the North Bay and premier mid-sized theater in the Bay Area. In the fall of 2023, Lance Gardner was appointed artistic director.
