The City of West Hollywood invites the community to attend upcoming design visioning workshops for the new state-of-the-art West Hollywood City Playhouse that will replace the Coast Playhouse, located at 8325 Santa Monica Boulevard, across the street from West Hollywood City Hall on Santa Monica Boulevard near N. Sweetzer Avenue.
The new 99-seat, approximately 5,000-square-foot venue will serve as an arts and cultural event center that will support artists and nonprofit arts organizations by providing an accessible venue in the center of West Hollywood. The project will include public programming and a landscaped civic space.
The City will host two in-person community workshops in February to collect feedback and ideas for the project:
The City Playhouse Community Design Visioning Workshop will take place on Tuesday, February 14, 2023, at 6 p.m. in the Kings Road Park Community Room, located at 1000 N. Kings Road. The purpose of this in-person workshop is to further define the project’s goals and objectives by gathering input from the community on priorities such as accessibility, landscaping, sustainability, and other on-site activations. RSVP in requested via Eventbrite.
The City Playhouse Artist Stakeholder Design Workshop will take place on Tuesday, February 28, 2023 at 6 p.m. at the Plummer Park Community Center in Rooms 5 and 6, located at 7377 Santa Monica Boulevard. The purpose of this in-person design workshop will be to gather input from performing artists in the community to identify opportunities for community-based programming, and to collaboratively discuss the general vibe, functional requirements, and spatial constraints of the various spaces within the City Playhouse. RSVP is requested via Eventbrite.
