Since opening its doors in 1990, Irvine Barclay Theatre has emerged as one of California's most imaginative performing arts showcases.
A unique collaborative venture among the City of Irvine, the University of California, Irvine, and the private sector, the theatre has a reputation for wide-ranging programming in the fields of contemporary dance, music, and theater arts.
In addition to our own programs, the Barclay is available for rental to other arts and cultural groups, as well as, corporate meetings and commercial events.
The Barclay features an intimate 756-seat auditorium and is noted for its excellent sightlines and acoustics.
The stage is fully-loaded with lighting and sound reinforcement equipment, features easily accessible load-in and quality dressing room facilities, all run by a professional crew.
