Santa Monica College

The Eli and Edythe Broad Stage

The Broad Stage provides a much-needed performance facility for the College and the surrounding community. Its 499-seat state-of-the-art Theater anchors a performing arts complex at the SMC Madison Campus on Santa Monica Boulevard and 11th Street. Its Art Gallery features student and faculty exhibitions in addition to world-class artists.

Its 99 flexible smaller rehearsal hall is used for the presentation of spontaneous and experimental works as well as other types of performance. Its presenting program hosts high-level professional productions of dance, theater, voice, chamber music, film and spoken word. The arts education outreach for local and neighboring K-12 schools utilizes artists presented from the main Theater Series as well as local performers. The adjacent building is a home for the SMC Music Academy.
