About the Cultural Affairs Department

The City built and opened the Civic Arts Plaza in October 1994. It consists of City Hall, a three-acre park, and two theatres. Cultural Affairs oversees operations for the 1,800-seat Fred Kavli Theatre for the Performing Arts and the 394-seat Janet and Ray Scherr Forum Theatre, and manages a wide range of arts services. Through a partnership with TOArts, Cultural Affairs supports our three resident companies: Pacific Festival Ballet, New West Symphony and 5 Star Theatricals.
