EXIT Theatre has been operating since 1983, when Artistic Director, Christina Augello began staging plays in the lobby of a Tenderloin residential hotel. Since then, we’ve expanded into five intimate venues ranging in size from 25 – 80 seats. In addition to providing a home for emerging and independent theatre artists and companies, the EXIT annually produces a full season of performances with resident artists and designers.
Our mission is to help develop theatre artists by providing opportunities to create, experiment, and grow by commissioning new works, providing production support and low-cost venue rental, and producing performance festivals for local and touring artists, including the San Francisco Fringe Festival – the oldest grassroots theatre festival in the Bay Area, and the second oldest Fringe in the US.

In addition to new works, reimagined classics, and experimental performance, we host regular magic, burlesque, improv, and storytelling events throughout the year. Take a walk on the wild side with us!
