The Don Powell Theatre, located on the campus of San Diego State University, is a very cozy and intimate venue offering quality performing arts to the surrounding communities. Thanks to the unusually large stage for this size of venue, every seat in the house offers a clear unobstructed view. The theatre offers an interesting variety of programming which is both stimulating and original.

SDSU has a well deserved reputation for its excellence in theatre arts. Offering both undergraduate and graduate degrees, the university is committed to the pursuit of excellence in academic and artistic endeavors geared to enhancing the human enterprise.
