For Adults

“I regard theater as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.”  – Oscar Wilde



  • SpringFEST ::  Live Theatre is a transformative experience, be it from the perspective of artist or audience member.  Therefore, Hartnell College/The Western Stage SpringFEST ensures that every member of our community has a way into this experience, no matter what age, experience, or culture. 


  • LegacyPlayers :: The LegacyPlayers of The Western Stage is a group of twelve veteran senior actors from Monterey County with over five centuries of theater experience who offer unique performances that illuminate and enrich the lives of our community, In addition, there are many senior adults who have always wanted to try their hand at theater, but who have not had the opportunity in their busy lives to investigate the challenges and joys of live theater.


  • Hartnell Theatre Arts :: There are many opportunities to get involved at The Western Stage, whether you’re a young person (or not) just getting started, a student, or a veteran of the stage! Start with our Theatre Technique and Core Classes.
