"When I think back on my childhood, I think immediately of The Playhouse! It is where I made lifelong friends, cultivated confidence, and fell in love with theater in a way that has shaped my entire life. It was my second home growing up and I love it with all my heart. It is so important that we support The Playhouse so that future generations of Marin children are able to experience the joy of finding themselves through theater, creativity, and the most special community."
