Learn About Horton Plaza Theatres Foundation

Horton Plaza Theatres Foundation was formed in November 1983 by the San Diego City Council to oversee the operation and management of the publicly-leased Lyceum Theatre and to act as the steward of the Lyceum.

Our Mission:
  • To administer and provide general stewardship of the Lyceum Theatre infrastructure by maintaining, upgrading, and enhancing theatrical and non-theatrical systems in a manner that renders them safe, functional, and aesthetically pleasing and ensuring that the Lyceum Theatres maintains a high level of quality in production capabilities.
  • To provide financial assistance to San Diego nonprofit theatrical, dance, and music production companies in order to support the growth of new and/or emerging artists and to bring quality artistic content to underserved audiences.
  • To create and promote a public cultural town hall environment and experience where the diverse residents of the region and visitors can come together to explore and express their uniqueness and commonality.
