About The Sofia
We eagerly anticipate the opening of our new performing arts complex in midtown Sacramento, named in honor of one of its key supporters – The Sofia Tsakopoulos Center for the Arts. Affectionately known as The Sofia.
When it opens in February 2018, The Sofia will be home to B Street Theatre’s Mainstage (naming opportunity available) and the Sutter Theatre for Children – California’s first year-round, professional theatre for children. In the same spirit of community from which B Street Theatre was born, Sutter Theatre will open its doors to host the performances and events of local artists, community organizations, and visiting acts. In effect, this landmark facility will become an entertainment hub for all of Sacramento, where locals and tourists alike can see theatre, comedy, dance, or musical acts in an intimate, professional space every night of the year. In addition, its large public lobby, classrooms, open-air courtyard, and on-site restaurant make The Sofia a true destination.
Step Inside The Sofia
SUTTER THEATRE FOR CHILDREN
Proscenium – 365 Seats
The larger of the two theatre spaces will be the Sutter Theatre for Children, a 365-seat proscenium-style playhouse featuring wing-and-trap space to create seemingly magical entrances of actors and props. This proscenium stage will not only host our Family Series, but function as a space for concerts, speaking engagements, conferences and other community events.
Thrust – 250 Seats
The second space will be our Mainstage Theatre, a 250-seat theatre (scalable to 267 seats) with a thrust stage for a more intimate atmosphere. This space will be home to B Street Theatre’s Mainstage Series. Patrons will feel truly immersed in the stories and the lives of the characters they see onstage.
In addition to our two theatre spaces, the complex will host three rehearsal rooms available for special events, classes and meetings .
