When you come to The Pasadena Playhouse, we invite you step into The Georgia T. McClay Friendship Center for interactive exhibits, dramaturgical material and conversation surrounding our Main Stage productions. The exhibits and installations change with each production. Check this page frequently for current information.

Running October 27 – November 22


In conjunction with Breaking Through, please enjoy this interactive exhibit in the Friendship Center.

Designed by DeAnne Millais, this exhibit will take you along the journey of the making of this original musical and delve into the themes of authenticity and the artist. You can take your own rock star photo at the interactive photo station and write your own music at the music station. Please be sure to stop by the Friendship Center before the show, at intermission, or after the performance.
