The Curtain Raisers, a California Non-Profit Organization, was formed to bring low cost, professional theatre to Valley audiences. Since we first "raised our curtain" at The Golden Mall Playhouse on September 21, 1973, our productions have won growing audiences and critical acclaim. Many clubs and organizations have found our productions to be a "fun way" to raise funds for their charitable projects. We plan to "raise the curtain" on live entertainment 12 months a year in this theatre, and we hope you will join us for each exciting production. We want this to be your theatre as well as ours! If you're interested in any phase of theatre, stop backstage after the show and introduce yourself! We'll be delighted if you want to become a Curtain Raiser, too!

THEATRE SPONSORS: Jeffrey Greenwald, The Management Tree, Jane and Joe Mitchell, Susan Stueve
